Banana Nut Bread by My Baking Heart

I’ve been a little lax lately with my TWDs and FFwDs. I’m in the process of testing cupcakes for this weekend’s Cupcake Camp Dallas and truthfully, the last things I need are ice cream tarts and vanilla eclairs laying around, calling my name. ­čÖé

I did have a few bananas that were spotty and begging to be used, so in between a batch of angel food cuppies and spice cuppies, I made a couple of loaves of banana nut bread. I can remember my mom making this once every few weeks… it was a recipe that was handed down to her from her momma and one of her absolute favorite things to nibble on. It takes just a few minutes to put together and within an hour, you’re enjoying a simple, heartfelt and comforting loaf of bread. Just the ticket for a Sunday morning breakfast!

Your banana bread looks so moist and numbly (by that, I mean the nuts give it a yummy looking texture). ­čśÇ
It would be perfect with a cup of coffee!

I’ve been craving banana bread like mad and this is just about pushing me over the edge. Suddenly wondering if the box of mix on the top of the fridge will even come close to these. I feel as though I’m about to make a big mess in the kitchen in about five minutes!
