Banana Bread

YUMMY! I got this recipe from Amber's Delectable Delights.

I made 1 loaf plain without nuts and the other loaf, I added 1/2 cups pecans and I also added 1/2 cups chocolate chunks. I took them both to work and they were devoured. Everyone especially liked the pecan/chocolate chip one.

Banana Bread

Ingredients:
  • 3 bananas, smashed
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup nuts (pecans, walnuts, almonds, etc)
Directions:
-Combine all ingredients except for nuts, using a mixer.- Add nuts and mix by hand- Grease bread pan
-Cook for 50 minutes at 350 degrees
-Check with toothpick for doneness (may need to cook longer, possibly 15 more minutes)

This recipe can also be turned into muffins. Simply scoop the batter into 12 muffin cups. Cook at the same temperature but reduce bake time to 25 minutes.
