Banana Nut Bread - perfect with a cup of coffee, especially on rainy mornings

This Post was written by Margot from Coffee and Vanilla.

Banana Nut Bread


5 medium bananas - mashed roughly (about 700g)
200 g unsalted butter (melted)
½-⅔ cup of walnuts (chopped or not)
2 eggs (beaten)
3 tbs of vanilla sugar (30g)
1 tbs of baking powder
1 cup of soft dark brown sugar
2 pinches of salt
3 cups plain flour
2 tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp ground nutmeg

Stir everything together and place in 2 medium size buttered tins or layered with teflon sheets.
You can use also 2 medium size bread loaf tins.
Bake in 140°C (248°F) for an hour – an hour and half.

Leave to cool down before serving. Taste even better the next day.

Makes about 15 servings.

* Make sure that you don’t put too much bananas, or you don’t mash them too much because cake will not grow like on the first picture.
I use my fingers to mash bananas :)

** When my daughter was younger I used to chop nuts, right now I add them almost not chopped what is adding texture to the cake.

If you have fallen prey to obesity and would like to trigger off weight loss as soon as possible, then you should opt for diet pills such as Phentermine and Adipex that are extremely popular for inducing rapid weight loss among people across the world. You will find the relevant details of weight loss pills at http://www.weight-loss-truths.com that inform you that Phentermine is to be taken only after procuring a Phentermine prescription and also in accordance with the instructions of the doctor. So, get hold of a Phentermine prescription, administer the drug properly and transform your weight loss dreams into reality.
