Banana Walnut Bread

I always loved the combination of bananas and walnuts. I baked Banana Walnut Muffins years ago and they were so delicious, but never attempted them again. Why? No clue. I just got wrapped up in making cupcakes, but no muffins anymore. Something I really have to change. Muffins are easy to bake and make a great on-the-go breakfast.



So many times I found very ripe bananas stored in the kitchen and I had no idea what to do with them. I ended up making banana milk shakes, but baking is so much better! I owned a cheap and very bad loaf pan years ago and threw it out when we moved. Luckily I recently bought a Wilton loaf pan which is excellent. I baked bread in it and nothing ever sticks. Lesson learned: You get what you pay for. It really pays off to buy a better pan and they really do not cost a fortune.



So when I ended up with really soft bananas once again I finally decided to give a Banana Walnut Bread a chance. I searched for a recipe online and the first one that showed up was a Banana Walnut Bread recipe from Food Network with a lot of really good reviews. The recipe calls for toasted walnuts, but honestly I was too lazy to toast them. I had walnut halves which I put in a Ziploc bag and crushed by stepping on them. For me that was the fastest way to get the job done without the work of cleaning a food processor.



The recipe is easy to follow and the Banana Walnut Bread turned out great. It was best the next day when the bananas soaked in a little more. Top it with whipped cream and… yum!

    Nice tip Nina! Next time I have some ripe bannanas in my kitchen I will think of making banana walnut bread.

    It looks like banana cake. How yummy it was? That was nice recipe though. I suggest to post out the procedure in making this banana bread. I think it’s simple to make. Is it?

    I LOVE banana bread. Love the walnut crushing tip. I usually just drive the car over them (just kidding). Sometimes I add chopped prunes to my banana bread. It’s much better than it sounds!
