Dense and moist banana nut bread recipe from my friend Martha's friend Terri's mom.
  • 1 stick (4 ounces) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (my addition)
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons buttermilk or milk mixed with a little lemon juice
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda dissolved in a few drops of hot water
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large mashed bananas
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (9 ounces) -- weigh or stir and aerate before measuring
  • 1/2 cup chopped and toasted walnuts or pecans
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
  2. In a large mixing bowl using an electric mixer, beat the butter and both sugars until creamy. Beat in the vanilla.
  3. Add the eggs one at a time, beating until mixed. Beat in the milk, baking soda dissolved in water and the salt. When mixed, beat in the bananas, then stir in the flour. Stir in the pecans.
  4. Pour into the pan and bake on center rack for 45 to 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with moist crumbs
