Banana Pecan Bread

I had some extra ripe bananas just begging to be made into something fantastic. Luckily, I didn't have any walnuts on hand, so it made me search for a new recipe that included pecans, something I did have. This recipe calls this Moist Banana Pecan Bread, and it is! I'm enjoying a warm piece out of the oven now...and you should too!

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 medium overripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  1. Preheat oven to 325. Grease a 9" x 5" loaf pan.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat together butter and brown sugar until creamed. Beat in eggs, mashed bananas, and vanilla until creamy.
  3. In a seperate bowl, combine flour, salt, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg. Gradually add this dry mixture into creamed mixture and mix well. Batter will get thick.
  4. Stir in chopped pecans.
  5. Pour into greased loaf pan. Bake at 325 for 70-80 minutes. (Mine took the full 80 minutes)
  6. Makes 1 loaf.
