  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour 8 oz
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas
  • 3/4 cup pecans toasted and chopped
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch morsels


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x5 inch metal loaf pan and dust with flour. If you have some, line the bottom with parchment. This bread is kind of sticky.
  • Mix together the flour, soda, cinnamon and salt and set aside.
  • In bowl of stand mixer, beat the sugar, butter and egg. Beat in the bananas, followed by the vanilla and the milk.
  • Add the flour mixture and stir until blended.
  • Stir in all but 2 tablespoons of the pecans and the butterscotch morsels. Sprinkle the pecans on top of the banana bread and bake for 1 hour. After 45 minutes, lay a sheet of foil over the bread to prevent over-browning. Let bread cool in pan on a rack for about 15 minutes, then remove from pan.
