Knowing how to make a great loaf of Banana Nut Bread is one of those things every cook should have in their list of “go-to” recipes. Take a loaf to a friend or family member’s home when you visit and you’ll always be welcome. It’s as hospitable as bringing a bottle of wine. However, it’s less expensive and counts for more “brownie points” because it’s homemade.
My husband, Ernie, loves anything with bananas. He eats them au naturale, in bread, cake, sliced on top of ice cream with a little caramel sauce. When I want Ernie to know in a culinary way that I love him, I make him something with bananas. When I see a few brown-speckled bananas in the big fruit bowl on our kitchen counter – I know he’s hinting for a taste of Banana Nut Bread.
