Banana-Walnut Bread
Instructions
  1. Reserve ½ cup walnuts for garnish.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease an 8” circular baking pan or 9”x 5” loaf pan.
  3. Add bananas, flour, eggs, butter, sugar, nuts & raisins to the food processor; pulse till well combined. (I had some technical problems with my processor when I tried to turn it on after dumping all the ingredients in it; so I had to dump everything back into a bowl and use a hand mixer to mix. It was a little annoying cleaning up the mess, but the bread turned out just fine).
  4. Pour into the prepared pan; arrange the reserved walnuts on the top. Bake for 45-50 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  5. Cool in pan.
Recipe Notes

This bread tastes great toasted with some butter. I brought it to my colleague’s birthday breakfast and everybody loved it.
