This makes a moist, dense, flavorful loaf -- lots of requests for it at work
Preheat oven to 325F. Cream butter, cream cheese and sugar together thoroughly. Blend in bananas, eggs and vanilla. Sift flour, baking soda and salt together. Add to banana mixture, alternating with buttermilk and mixing thoroughly after each addition. Add nuts and gently mix. Pour batter into greased and floured loaf pan (min. size 9x5). Bake for 1 1/4 hours, or until done. Yields 1 loaf.
Note: I've found sometimes I have too much batter for the pan, and have left a bit out; have learned to bake the loaf pan on a cookie sheet so that if any spills over it will be caught before hitting the bottom of the oven!
pattywcox 2y agoFantastic flavor
CopperOtter 3y agoVery good as is. If making in 9x5 loaf pan, will have to cook a bit longer than suggested if using all the batter. Excellent cooled with cream cheese.
carlycross 3y agoPretty sweet bread. Didn't really taste a difference from regular banana nut bread. Had extra batter, so I made cupcake size at 30-35 mins
Chrissycat 4y agoI love this recipe! I also have modified it a bid by substituting coffee creamer, (any flavor you wish) for the buttermilk.
Honigkuchen 4y agoFantastic! I will make this again and again. I used a mini loaf pan for the excess dough. Filling it first leaves you with the right amont of dough for the regular loaf pan. The little one was done first, so we were eating before the actual loaf was ready and cooled. Hmm, what a treat! Briefly roasting your chopped walnuts or pecans in the oven while it is preheating is also a great tip. * I have recently used a 10" tube pan as the picture shows and this worked out so much better.
pookie7474 4y agoAbsolutely delicious & moreish!! I doubled the recipe & got 3 generous loaves out of it. Will definitely be making again!
Brownbarb47 4y agoI doubled this and it is a generous recipe. Yummy the first day and even better the next! This is going to be the only one I use from now on.
Mommieoftwins 4y agoI'm making this for the third time! Love this bread. I use 4 bananas and make 2 loaves, one in a smaller loaf pan. Also I use pecans and toast them in the oven before adding to dough.
dboverman 4y agoThis is a fantastic recipe for bananas that are ready to be retired. I substituted the walnuts with golden raisins after replumping them. Everybody that's tried it has wanted the recipe.
Preyesone 5y agoFamily loved this bread. Bananas can't ripen fast enough to make the bread again.
