Hello Bakers– I’ve been making my Grandma Rose’s banana bread for as long a I can remember, It’s the favorite in kitchens all over our family. But when I saw this version sweetened by maple syrup, I had to give it a try. I can just say it smells heavenly coming out of the oven!!
MAPLE WALNUT BANANA BREAD
2 very ripe bananas
1/3 cup canola oil
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/3 cup flour
2 tab. brown sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
2 tablespoons brown sugar
Prepare the topping first. Chop the nuts, mix in 2 tab. brown sugar and set aside.
Mash those bananas with a fork in a large mixing bowl. Then stir in the oil, syrup, egg and vanilla. Next mix in the flour, brown sugar, baking powder an salt.
Spoon the batter in to a standard 9″x5″ loaf pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Bake at 350 degrees from 35 to 40 minutes, until a small knife inserted comes out clean. (I used two smaller pans to make one loaf to keep, one to take to my father-in-law Stu). Enjoy!!
