Banana Nut Bread

DSC0994_2-1024x678

I live for moist banana bread. Dense and brick-like banana bread is not my cup of tea. Sorry, Starbucks. I know your banana bread was previously frozen, and it tastes like a dry rock in my mouth.

I developed this recipe for banana bread after attempting a few recipes that I thought would be better if they were combined. One recipe had the moistness down, and one recipe had the prime amount of mashed bananas and nuts. I achieved the right balance here, I think. If you want to omit the nutmeg, cinnamon, and walnuts, be my guest. They pack some punch to regular banana bread, so give it some thought before you decide to omit these flavor boosters. Plain whole milk yogurt adds a melt-in-your-mouth moistness, too, so it’s definitely worth using. (plus, who doesn’t have yogurt in their fridge anyway?) I hope you enjoy this attempt at a class fruit loaf that is perfect for breakfast or a sweet snack.

Butter your loaf pan with some butter and dump some flour in it. You can use a disposable aluminum loaf pan or a metal one.

Distribute the flour evenly until the butter pan is dusted in flour. This will prevent the bread from sticking to the pan when baking.
