Blog Prompt – Today is Homemade Bread Day. Do you have a great recipe for bread to share or do you prefer to buy it already made at the store?
I love homemade bread and my favorite is my mom’s Banana Nut Bread. The best time to eat it is right out of the oven with a little bit of butter on it. YUMMY!!
Banana Nut Bread
1 cup butter or margarine
2 cups sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons soda
4 cups flour
6 large bananas, very ripe, mashed
1 cup finely chopped pecans
Cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Sift dry ingredients together; add to creamed mixture. Stir in bananas and chopped pecans.
Pour banana nut bread batter into 2 well-greased loaf pans; bake at 325° for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. This banana nut bread recipe makes 2 loaves.
This recipe makes 2 loaves and is great to keep one and pass another one on for a gift. Great at Christmas time.
Enjoy some homemade bread today,
