Best bread recipe for you. Banana Bread with Pecans Recipe!

Prep Time      : 25  mins
Inactive Time : 30 mins
Cook Time     : 1 hour 15 mins
Total Time      : 2 hours 15 mins

Servings        : 1 loaf


·         2 cups all-purpose flour
·         1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
·         1/2 teaspoon salt
·         4 overripe bananas
·         1 cup sugar
·         3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
·         2 large eggs
·         1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
·         1/2 cup pecans, finely chopped
·         Confectioners' sugar, for dusting


1.   Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and lightly grease a 9 by 5-inch loaf pan.
2.   In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
3.   Mash 2 of the bananas with a fork in a small bowl so they still have a bit of texture. With an electric mixer fitted with a wire whisk, whip the remaining bananas and sugar together for a good 3 minutes; you want a light and fluffy banana cream. Add the melted butter, eggs, and vanilla; beat well and scrape down the sides of the bowl. Mix in the dry ingredients just until incorporated; no need to overly blend. Fold in the nuts and the mashed bananas with a rubber spatula. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Give the pan a good rap on the counter to get any air bubbles out.
4.   Bake for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. Don't get nervous if the banana bread develops a crack down the center of the loaf; that's no mistake, it's typical. Rotate the pan periodically to ensure even browning.
5.   Cool the bread in the pan for 10 minutes or so, and then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely before slicing. Toast the slices of banana bread, dust with confectioners' sugar, and serve.
