Nah… That’s not the sound of your doorbell, nor your phone, not even Darna asking for the magical stone from her brother. That’s the sound of the oven that has just finished baking our first-ever Banana Walnut Bread. Fabuloso!
Ok…ok… I know it may not be that hard for you, but heck, it’s my first, and Pats as well, for this goodie. And, with all pride, we could say that it’s a success. Successsssssssss!
Unlike our first pastry – Brownies, we did this one from scratch. No, thanks to Pillsbury for this round. I may have been your follower since the time I burnt my first-ever brownie, now, it’s time to take it to the next level. May ganon!? I guess AFC (The Asian Food Channel) is to blame for rekindling the kitchenomotrics flame in me – if there is even such a word.
Ok, enough talk, here are the ingredients (allow me to give this a try):
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup melted butter
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1 cup chopped toasted walnuts
And for the steps:
1. Cream the sugar and melted butter in a mixing bowl.
2. Sift the flour, baking soda, and salt into a medium-sized bowl. Set aside.
3. Grease the pan and pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
4. Gradually put the eggs into the butter mixture while mixing (preferably with a hand-mixer).
5. Then, put the flour mixture as well (continuous mixing).
6. Add the bananas until all ingredients are incorporated. Then, add the nuts.
7. Pour the batter into the pan and bake for 50 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean (stick the toothpick at the center of the bread).
8. Let it cool. Serve and enjoy.
Easy huh? Give it a try. Let me know if you have added something or modified it to make it taste better so Pats and I could give it a shot as well. 🙂
