Brown Sugar Banana Nut Bread

So I had a ridiculous amount of bananas, and coincidentally 4 of them were so ripe they were almost black! I came across this recipe and immediately knew how to use those bananas :) I used pecans instead of walnuts and dark brown sugar instead of light brown, but I have zero complaints and I'm not really sure it could get any better. The result: WOW!

Brown Sugar Banana Nut Bread


1 cup golden brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 large egg
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
4 medium banana, mashed
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp table salt
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup roughly chopped walnuts


1.  Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 9×5 pan with nonstick spray.

2.  Cream butter and sugar with a mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs 1 at a time. Stir in vanilla and banana.

3.  Stir in flour, baking powder and salt until combined. Fold in walnuts until combined.

4.  Pour in pan, top with additional 2 Tbsp chopped walnuts and bake 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
