Banana Nut Bread

It’s a bit cold in NYC due to a nice snow fall. I have comfort food on my mind. I was talking to a friend, Christine, yesterday about banana nut bread and man oh man does that sound good right about now…

I found a great Bisquick recipe for banana nut bread. Bisquick is great in terms of making baking and cooking more simple. Not to mention you can use Bisquick to make so many kosher soul dishes from pancakes, biscuits, dumplings and on and on!

Nosh on,

Banana Nut Bread

• 1-1/3 cups mashed very ripe bananas (2 large)
• 2/3 cup sugar
• 1/4 cup milk
• 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
• 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
• 3 eggs
• 2-2/3 cups Original Bisquick
• 1/2 cup chopped nuts
Heat oven to 350°. Grease bottom only of loaf pan, 9X5X3 inches
In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except Bisquick and nuts; stir until blended. Stir in Bisquick and nuts. Pour into prepared loaf pan.

Bake banana nut bread for 50 to 60 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean; cool 10 minutes. Loosen sides of loaf from pan and remove to wire rack to cool completely.

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Use 1/2 cup sugar and 1/3 cup milk. Bake banana nut bread for 55 to 60 min.
