Paula Deen's Banana Bread

Paula Deen’s Banana Bread
No electric mixer needed here- just mix in a bowl by hand.
½ c (1 stick) butter, at room temperature
1 c sugar
½ tsp salt
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 ½ c all-purpose flour, sifted
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
3 ripe bananas, mashed
optional ½ c chopped walnuts or pecans

Preheat oven to 350o. Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan. In a mixing bowl, combine the butter and sugar; mix well. Add the remaining ingredients (minus the nuts) and mix well. Stir in nuts. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 50 minutes.

  1. To make this recipe healthier, use a cup of all purpose flour and 3/4 c. whole wheat flour. Reduce sugar to 1/2 c. Use 1/2 stick of butter and 1/4 c. fat free Greek yogurt (I had vanilla on hand, but plain would also work). I also used 4 bananas because I didn't want to throw out the last one. It was delicious!
