Banana Nut Bread

Banana Nut Bread

5 tablespoons of salted butter

½ cup sugar

½ cup brown sugar

1 large egg

2 egg whites

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 ½ cup mashed banana (approx. 3 bananas)

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon baking powder

½ cup heavy whipping cream

½ cup chopped pecans, walnuts, or almonds.

Preheat oven to 350 and grease loaf pan. Mix butter and sugars add egg and egg whites along with vanilla, Mix well, add banana and mix for at least 30 seconds on high. Combine flours, soda, powder and salt in a separate bowl.  Mix a little of the flour mixture into the butter mixture then some of the whipping cream then flour then cream ending with flour. Mix in pecans.  Pour batter into prepared loaf pan bake for 1 hr. and 15 min or until tooth pick inserted into middle comes out clean. Cool on wire rack in pan for at least 10 min then remove from pan to rack to cool completely.

I found that you can use baby food bananas in place of the mashed bananas, approx. four jars in the right amount. This doesn’t change the flavor but makes the texture a little gummier. If you have excess baby food lying around this is a good way to use it up.
