How to Make Nana's Old Fashion Banana Nut Bread

If you want to relive those days of enjoying Banana Nut Bread at Nana's house, this recipe is for you. It is easy to make and taste like Nana's.


5 tbsp butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 large egg
2 egg whites
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups very ripe mashed bananas
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9-inch loaf pan; set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, with an electric mixer at medium speed, beat butter until light and fluffy. Add granulated sugar and brown sugar beating well. Add egg, egg whites, and vanilla beating until well blended. Add the banana and beat on high speed for about 30 seconds.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, and baking powder. Add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture alternately with the cream, ending with the flour mixture. Stir walnuts into the batter.Pour bread batter evenly into the prepared loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees about 1 hour and 15 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove bread from pan and finish cooling on the wire rack. Slice and serve.

NOTE: Cooled bread can be wrapped tightly in plastic wrap and served the next day. This is also a way to give a good food gift. Wrap in plastic wrap and add a pretty bow that fits the occasion.
