Whole Wheat Banana Spice Bread

21 Nov

This smells so good even before you get it into the oven! Simple and fun for the children to help with. I’m supposed to let this cool before I cut into it but, I just cannot wait!

  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 3)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, unsifted
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour, unsifted
  • 1/3 cup hot water
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. allspice
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts

Melt butter and blend in sugar. Mix in beaten eggs and mashed banana, blending until smooth. In a bowl, stir together all-purpose flour, salt, soda, spices, and whole wheat flour until thoroughly blended. Add dry ingredients alternately with hot water to the banana mixture. Stir in chopped nuts. Spoon batter into a greased 9×5 inch loaf pan.

Bake in a 325° oven for about 1 hour and 10 minutes, until bread begins to pull away from sides of pan and a wooden skewer inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes; then turn out onto a rack to cool completely.

Makes 1 loaf.

    This was a very impressive banana bread recipe! I had a piece and a half on the day it was made, and then it magically disappeared before I got home from work the next day. Everybody loved it!
