Banana Nut Bread

Not only is banana nut bread one of my husband's and dad's favorite baked treats, it is also one of my favorite (and easiest) homemade goodies to make.  It is perfect at any time of the year but especially during the CHRISTmas season when I enjoy baking (but do not need to eat the results).  I made a loaf a few weeks ago for an event at work and figured I would share this recipe - for now or for later.
This recipe was given to me by my Mom, is tried and true and never fails me.  Let me know if you give it a try and what you think of it.  I bet you will think it is yummy!


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup melted margarine
  • 1 teaspoon soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 ripe bananas, smashed
  • 1 cup chopped nuts

Mix bananas, sugar, butter and eggs.  Sift flour and soda in separate bowl.  Add to first ingredients.  Add chopped nuts.  Bake in greased loaf pan at 350 degrees for 60 minutes.

It is as easy as that.  My hubby had me include blueberries one time and it was tasty too.



  1. This was fabulous! I've made banana nut bread many times before but tonight I decided to try a different recipe! Love all things pinterest so I looked for a recipe and yours came out first! I liked that it was easy to prepare. It was so good! My oldest son commented that I had "hit it out of the park"! Half of it is already gone! Great recipe!

    1. So thrilled to hear your family loved it, Janine! Thanks for saying so. ENJOY!

    1. You are more than welcome, Phyllis! I know. I probably need to make a couple of loaves at a time too. I know my husband would love that. :)
