Banana Nut Bread

Banana nut bread is one of my all time favorites when it comes to baked goods from the kitchen.

My step-mom and dad used to give everyone on their lists a selection of breads, including pumpkin bread and banana nut bread, in a basket each Christmas. It was one of my favorite gifts.

The banana nut bread recipe below is one I have used for many years. I don't remember where I got the recipe, or when I got it, but it makes truly delicious bread.

The Best Banana Nut Bread Recipe

Not too sweet, but sweet enough to satisfy.

In a large mixing bowl, mix:
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 stick margarine melted
  • 2 eggs beaten


  • 1 ¾ cups flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 bananas
  • ¾ cups chopped nuts (We prefer pecans, but some people enjoy walnuts.)

Mix well and pour into a greased fluted Bundt cake pan. Bake at 325degrees for 1 hour.  Check with a toothpick or a knife for done-ness. When inserted toothpick or knife comes out clean, the bread is done. Remove from oven and allow to sit in pan for 10 to 15 minutes before turning out onto a plate or platter.

This recipe works well baked in loaves, too. Grease and flour two loaf pans. After baking for 1 hour check to see if the bread is done.

Do you like to bake homemade sweet breads, too?
