Weekend recipes: Banana Bread V

This is a recipe from allrecipes.com

We baked 3 recipes this weekend.  We had a ton of bananas in the freezer, and still have enough to make some more.  We would have baked 4, but could not find our usual recipe.  It's got to be somewhere in the house.

2 cups all-purpose flour 
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup white sugar 
1 egg 
5 tablespoons milk 
1 teaspoon baking powder  
 1/2 teaspoon salt  
1/2 cup butter 
1-1/2 cup mashed bananas   
1/2 cup chopped walnuts  

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease an 8x4 inch loaf pan.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Beat in the egg and mashed bananas. Mix in flour, baking soda and salt just until combined. Pour into prepared loaf pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour. If top begins to brown too quickly, decrease heat slightly. Center should be soft and chewy, while the outside, crisp and crunchy.


This was my favorite.  It had a nice banana flavor and the esthetics of the loaf were nice: not too terribly dark, not overly sweet.
