Banana Walnut Bread

I like banana bread.I usually buy bananas and wait for them to brown so that i could make bread or muffins.

They are very easy to make and this recipe doesn't need even a mixer.


All purpose flour - 1 1/2 cup

Sugar- 3/4 cup(or 1 cup if u want it to be sweeter)

Ripe bananas - 3 mashed

vanilla essence - 1 tsp

baking soda - 1/2 tsp

melted butter - 1/3 cup

egg - 1 beaten

walnuts - 1/2 cup

a pinch of salt


Preheat the oven to 350 degree Fahrenheit.Prepare the loaf pan(4*8 inch)by buttering all sides and dusting them with flour.

In a baking sheet place the walnuts and put it in the oven for 5 minutes.

Take out the toasted walnuts,chop them and keep them aside.

In a mixing bowl add the mashed bananas,melted butter and sugar.Mix them well.

Then add vanilla essence,a pinch of salt and the beaten egg.These are wet ingredients.

Sift the allpurpose flour with the baking soda and add them to the wet ingredients.

Just mix enough so that the all purpose flour gets incorporated well with the banana mixture.Don't overmix.

Bake it in the oven for 50 to 60 minutes.Insert a skewer in the middle of the banana bread.If it comes out clean then the bread is done.

Cool it on the rack and cut them into slices.
