Bananna Nut Bread

Old-fashioned Banana Nut Bread – measure a few ingredients into one bowl, mix and bake- it is that easy!  I always make extra loaves and wrap them in plastic wrap to either enjoy later or give as a gift.  You can thaw the entire loaf or just individual slices as desired.  I like to eat it warm with a pat of sweet butter and a steaming hot cup of strong coffee!

These disposable paper loaf pans are ideal to use for gifts and are readily available at most grocery and craft stores.  Bake your bread in one of these pretty little pans, wrap, and freeze or give away!

I’ve been using this recipe for over 30 years and it has not failed me yet! The result is a dense, moist, slightly sweet bread that keeps well for several days at room temperature.
