In the Kitchen: Banana Bread

One of my favorite bloggers Melaine from My Sweet Savannah shared her banana bread recipe last week.  I knew that was going on the fall "to do" list.  I made a few additions to her original recipe to make it more similar to my the bread my grandma made.

Not a very good photo but it smelled and tasted fab!  My first slice really didn't come out very pretty so I just took a picture of the pan.  I encourage you to check out Melaine's blog - her photo is much more fancy.

3 ripe bananas, mashed
2 eggs
3/4 cup of sugar
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chopped walnuts

Mix bananas, sugar, cinnamon, eggs, and vanilla (I don't have a stand mixer so I had to use a handheld one and it worked great).  In another bowl sift flour, baking soda, and salt.  Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients slowly while mixing...don't over mix.  I folded in walnuts at the very end.  Pour the dough into a greased and floured bread pan and bake at 350* for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
