The addition of bananas - providing they are very ripe - brings sweetness, moisture and flavor to this cake. Perfect for children, who usually love banana bread, it will keep for a few days.
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2/3 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup soft light brown sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
3 ripe bananas, mashed
Banana Bread Recipe at
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Grease and flour an 8-cup loaf, pan, 9-by-5-by-3-inches.

Sift together the flour, baking powder, nutmeg and 1/2 teaspoon salt into a bowl. Cream the butter and sugar together and gradually add the eggs. Add the mashed banana and mix until well combined. Add the sifted flour and mix until smooth.

Pour the mixture into the loaf pan and bake in the upper half of the oven for about 45 minutes, or until the top is colored and the sides are beginning to pull away from the pan. Cover the top of the cake loosely with foil if it starts to darken too quickly. A skewer inserted into the center should come out clean.

Allow to cool for 5 minutes before removing from the pan and cooling on a wire rack. When completely cooled, wrap in plastic wrap until served, to keep it moist.

Forget this recipe!
This is the worst banana bread ever(Agreed to by all at family dinner of 7 adults). Some spit it out. Should have known by the amount of nutmeg it called for. Don't waste your time or energy on it. Very disappointed.
