Autumn Banana Bread

BANANA BREAD

Cream in a bowl until light colored and fluffy – approx. 2 minutes
½ cup Butter, softened
½ cup Brown Sugar

Add:
2 Eggs, whole
1 ½ cups Banana pulp
¼ cup Heavy Cream (If you are watching calories, milk will do)
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract

Combine and add to above:
1 ½ cups AP Flour
½ cup Oatmeal, Quick
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Baking Powder
¼ tsp. Salt

Stir in:
1 cup lightly toasted Walnuts

Pour batter into a parchment* lined loaf pan or well-greased loaf pan. Bake approx. 1 hour and 15 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean when inserted into center top. Cool completely in pan if parchment was used. If you just greased your pan, cool bread for 15 minutes and then tip out onto cooling rack.

Parchment is found in grocery stores with other wraps. It’s a great tool that professionals use all the time. Not only will your bread not stick to the pan because of the parchment, but it allows for something to “grab” when removing the bread from the pan (see the above picture). Also, it cuts clean-up time!
