Banana Walnut Bread

Banana Walnut Bread – A Classic Loaf of Bread

Happy Wednesday! WOW, what a week. I am pretty excited to see the holiday around the corner tomorrow. I had a lot of fun this week, especially the blogging aspect of it. Despite the fact that work and hugecooking.com consumes a large majority of my waking day… I love it! No complaints about being busy over here. Do you like being busy?

Today, I thought I would share with you my take on a classic bread – Banana Bread! One of my all-time favorite loaves and a great way to use ripened bananas.

Every now and again I feel the need to add some nuts to my Banana Bread recipe for a different texture and flavor combination. With this loaf, I chose the “Walnut”.

Notes

    Pro Tips:

    When bananas are on their last leg on your counter, a great place to store them for either smoothies or baking is in the freezer.  They freeze very well and it will help prolong their useful life.

    I hope you get some time in the near future to try this banana bread.  As I mentioned earlier, it is one of my favorite loaves to make and eat.  A slight problem is that I tend to eat the whole loaf.  I especially love the two-end pieces.  Do you like the end pieces?

    The holiday is upon us… any big plans for you? I hope you have fun with whatever you choose to do and I will see you back here on Friday!
