Enjoy a hot, fresh-from-the-oven slice of nutty banana bread with your coffee and relax, sis.
Whenever I get stressed, I eat nuts instead of chocolates. And it’s not because they’re healthier, but it’s more on the fact that they’re the best nibbles that I can eat all day without getting tired of the taste. They’re not too oily, a nut quality that usually makes me lose my appetite and stop eating. Moreover, I notice that they make me alert, enabling me to concentrate on my work better. They also make a killer banana bread.
One of my favorite nuts is walnuts. Give me a pack of walnuts and a book, and I am ready to lounge on my favorite couch and have a relaxing day ahead. Walnuts are the easiest things to eat, with them being soft and crunchy at the same time. They also do not easily spoil. I don’t worry about stocking too much on my shelf. And of course, they easily go with my favorite fruit, the banana, when I am in the mood for a dessert that’s not too sweet or too rich.
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
2 medium bananas, sliced
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan.
In a large bowl, stir together the melted butter and sugar. Add the eggs and vanilla, mix well. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt, stir into the butter mixture until smooth. Finally, fold in the sour cream, walnuts and bananas. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. Cool loaf in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
