Have some dead bananas lying around? I know you all do. I’m not going to judge. It’s hard to eat all of them before they brown. Also Garrett likes bananas and so we do this quite a bit! Here’s a delicious & easy banana nut bread recipe. (Recipe Credit: Angie Dalton Schlothauer). Seriously it’s not hard – remember I’m a college kid I don’t cook.
First of all – preheat your oven to 325 degrees.
You’ll start making the batter by creaming 1/2 c. butter with 1 1/2 c. of sugar.
It should look kind of crumbly like this!
Next you’ll need to add 2 eggs and beat those in.
You’ll need to add 3 of those nasty brown bananas – mashed of course! Mix it very well.
You’ll also need to add your 1/2 c. chopped pecans and 4 tbsp of buttermilk.
I LOVE pecans! New Mexico produces quite a few so they’re pretty accessible (especially down south!)
The next thing you’ll need to do is measure out 1 tsp of vanilla and mix that delicousness in.
Finally you’ll sift the 2 c. of flour, 1 tsp. baking soda and a pinch of salt together and beat until well mixed.
And also can we dedicate just a minute to how adorable the miniature loaf pans are? I mean come on, how can you not;)? Then after that you’ll oil the inside of the pans lightly and dust with flour.
Then you’ll just have to divide it equally into three (adorable) mini-loaf pans.
Next you just bake these babies for 50 – 60 minutes (or until they’re brown) and enjoy the wonderfulness:)
But before you do that you should actually let them cool on a rack out of the mini loaf pans for like 30-45 minutes.
I hope you enjoy! Please let me know if you’ve got any questions or decide to try it I’d love to hear:)
