Spiced Banana Bread Recipe with Nuts

Arrow

Preheat Your Oven

Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). Preheating ensures that your banana bread bakes evenly and rises properly.

Prepare the Bananas

In a mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas with a fork until smooth. The bananas should be ripe with brown spots for the best flavor and sweetness.

Incorporate Wet Ingredients

Add the melted butter or coconut oil, brown sugar, granulated sugar, beaten egg, and vanilla extract to the mashed bananas. Mix well until all the wet ingredients.

Incorporate Dry Ingredients

In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and salt. Gradually add the dry.

Fold in Chopped Nuts

Gently fold in the chopped nuts until evenly distributed throughout the batter. The nuts add a delicious crunch and nutty flavor to the bread.

Prepare the Baking Pan

Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan with butter or cooking spray. Alternatively, line the pan with parchment paper for easy removal.

Pour the Batter

Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan, spreading it out evenly with a spatula.

Bake the Bread

Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. The top should be golden brown.
