Makes 1 Loaf


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 ounces butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour


Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Butter and flour a 3 x 5 x 8-inch loaf pan.

In a mixing bowl, cream together the sugar and the butter. One at a time, add the eggs. Add the bananas and the walnuts and mix until everything is well combined.

In a second bowl, sift together the baking soda, salt and flour. Mix the moist ingredients into the dry ingredients. Pour the batter into the loaf pan and bake in the oven for 2 hours, or until a wooden toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out free of moist batter. If the top of the loaf starts to get too dark, cover the pan with aluminum foil.
