As a child my Mother and Grandmother were always cooking and baking and their love for culinary has inspired my food photography. Whenever I have bananas that go overly ripe I love to make banana bread. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
1 1/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 lrg eggs
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 tsp vanilla
3 ripe bananas
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350, coat inside of two 9x5 loaf pans with butter and dusted flour or cooking spray. Place walnuts in a pie dish and lightly toast.
In a medium bowl sift flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt together. In another bowl, combine the sugar eggs and oil and beat at high speed until well blended. Mash banana and add vanilla until smooth texture. Blend banana into sugar mixture. Mix in dry ingredients until throughly blended and then fold in walnuts.
Pour the batter into the prepared pans and bake in middle of oven for 50 to 60 minutes. Check with toothpick until it comes out clean. Let slightly cool before turning over on cooling rack.
