“I actually abandoned my "family" banana bread in favor of this one... It's more a like a cake than a bread. I have increased the bananas from the original recipe, and I prefer to omit the nuts. I like mine warm with butter on top. Yummy!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter.
  2. Put the butter, sugar, bananas and eggs in a blender. Blend until nice and smooth.
  3. Now transfer to a mixing bowl.
  4. In a separate bowl, stir together flours, salt, and baking soda.
  5. Add dry ingredients to banana mixture alternately with hot water.
  6. Stir in chopped nuts.
  7. Cut a piece of waxed or parchment paper the size of the bottom of your loaf pan.
  8. (This helps the loaf come out in one piece while still warm).
  9. Put the paper in the loaf pan and spray the pan well with non-stick spray.
  10. Scoop the batter into the pan.
  11. Bake in a preheated 325 degree F oven for one hour and 10 minutes.
  12. Test with a cake tester to make to make sure it's done.
  13. Sometimes it takes a little bit longer.
  14. If the top gets too brown, cover it with a piece of aluminum foil so it doesn't get too much darker.
