101 in 1001: Number 76

Hi Guys! As I was looking down my list to find this number, I noticed that I have completed several of my 101 in 1001 goals that I haven't blogged about... I need to get on that! But let's just concentrate on this one, shall we?

76. Make banana nut bread from scratch

I happened to have a few bananas that were starting to go bad, so I decided to go ahead and knock this one off my list. I love banana nut bread but had never tried making it myself. So I called up my cousin Summer to get her recipe, grabbed a few things on the way home, and put my KitchenAid mixer to good use! I wish I had taken some pictures of the process, but alas, I didn't... So you'll have to settle for a couple pics of the finished product.

I was very pleased with the results. : ) And it's rather tasty! Thanks again, Summer!
Here is the recipe in case any of you would like to try it out:
Summer's Banana Nut Bread
(It makes two loaves)
- 2 sticks butter
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 eggs
-2 teaspoons water
- 2 cups mashed banana
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
-1 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350°F. Sift flour, salt, and baking soda together and set aside. Melt butter. Mix butter and sugar together until well blended. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each. Add banana and vanilla. Fold in flour mixture and walnuts until all moist. Grease 2 loaf pans. Divide the batter equally and bake about 60-75 minutes, or until a toothpick stuck in the middle comes out clean.

And there you have it! Let me know if any of you try it out. I'd love to hear how it turned out for you. : )
