Nutty Banana Bread

"This banana bread is so yummy and delicious!  It bakes up with a golden brown crust and is always tender and moist inside.  A big slice of it served alongside a tall glass of milk makes a satisfying, filling and easy breakfast.  It's also perfect as an afternoon or bedtime snack.  Make a loaf for your family and enjoy it any time of the day!" 

1-3/4 cups flour
2/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup mashed ripe bananas, about 2-3 bananas
1/3 cup butter, softened
2 Tablespoons milk
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Add bananas, butter and milk.  Beat with an electric mixer until combined.  Add eggs and vanilla and mix until completely blended together.  Stir in nuts.  Pour batter into a loaf pan that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray with flour (I like to use Pam Baking Spray or Bakers Joy.)  Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes or until golden brown.  Remove from oven and allow to cool in pan for 10 minutes.  Remove from pan and cool completely on a cooling rack.  Makes 1 loaf.
