My Mom suggested this recipe for the blog. It comes from one of our favorite cookbooks, Candlelight and Wisteria. She said it was THE VERY BEST banana nut bread recipe. How could I not give it a try with a name like that?!?!

Well, she was right. This was really, really good banana nut bread. So easy to make and it tasted fantastic. I love to eat a slice of this for breakfast or an afternoon pick me up. Actually, it is really good any time of the day. LOL!

As I said, this bread is very easy to make with only a few simple ingredients. Start with mashing some ripe bananas. Next, mix together butter and sugar until fluffy. Mix in the eggs. Slowly add the flour, baking soda, salt, mashed bananas, and pecans. Pour the batter into a loaf pan and bake.

    1. After a quick Google search, here is what I found.
      You could have added too much banana – the excess moisture can cause the bread to sink.
      It could be undercooked causing it to sink.

    1. Try spraying your pan with Pam with Flour Baking Spray or Bakers Magic. You can also line the pan with some parchment paper. I have a Williams-Sonoma Goldtouch Bread Pan that is amazing. Nothing ever sticks to it. I highly recommend it!

    2. Thank you so much for your quick reply! I love this recipe and want to take it to family/church functions, but couldn't because by the time I got it out of the pan, it looked awful! I'll check into that pan. Thank you again!
