Banana Nut Bread

My mom is an excellent cook. She's one of those cooks, though, that doesn't use specific measurements for her dishes. I, on the other hand, have to have a food road map, so a recipe with exact measurements is key for me. Since I always seem to have leftover bananas on hand, my sweet mama was kind enough to give me her recipe for banana nut bread a long time ago. When I say "give me her recipe," I mean that she used the term "about" before every single measurement she gave, so I decided to remove each "about" to have some semblance of exactitude. What resulted is the below recipe, which I make regularly. I love making it on Sunday evenings and eating it for breakfast for the first few days of the work week...if Tadd and I can save enough of it to last that long. It's good stuff, and fortunately for you, Hipsters, my mom said I could share her recipe with you all. Try it out and let me know what you think about it!

  1. I'm with you on needing exact measurements, especially when it comes to baking. And even with that it rarely turns out! I love a good banana bread and this looks delicious!

    1. Ella, baking is a lot of trial and error. I'm by no means any pro, but I like being in the kitchen and having something to show for it after an hour or so (even though it may not always be beautiful, it usually tastes good) :)
