 Ingredients List

  • 1/4 c Unsalted butter; softened
  • 2/3 c Sugar
  • 2 lg Bananas; very ripe, mashed
  • 2 lg Eggs; lightly beaten
  • Zest of 1 lemon; grated
  • 1 3/4 c All-purpose flour
  • 1 ts Baking soda
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1/2 c Chopped nuts; lightly
  • -toasted


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour a loaf pan measuring
8-1/2 x 4-1/2 inches, shake out the excess flour, and set aside.

In a large bowl cream together the butter and sugar until light. Put the
bananas in another bowl and stir in the eggs and lemon zest. Mix together
in a third bowl the flour, baking soda, and salt. Alternately stir the
banana and flour mixtures into the butter and sugar. Finally fold in the
nuts. Spoon the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake until the bread
tests done, about 1 hour. Cool the bread on a rack before turning it out
and slicing. Makes 1 loaf

NOTES : This makes a moist, flavorful, textured bread, neither too sweet
nor too heavy. Toast it in slices or not, as you choose.
