Banana Bread

We love banana bread in our house and I try to change up the recipe a little each time I make it. This one was a big hit. This recipe makes 2 loaves. I made this with pecans, but you can also use walnuts.
  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 6 ripe bananas mashed
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup - 1 cup pecans (depends on your preference)
  1. Preheat oven to 400
  2. Cream the butter and sugar till well combined.
  3. Add egg yolks and blend well.
  4. Add in bananas and vanilla and mix till combined
  5. Mix in flour and baking soda, beat till just combined (don't overbeat)
  6. Beat egg whites and fold into batter, add pecans to batter
  7. Pour in 2 bread pans
  8. Bake 50-60 minutes, until toothpick in center comes out clean.
  9. Let cool slightly and remove from pans.
