No Fail Simple Banana Nut Bread Recipe

Looking for an easy NO-FAIL banana bread recipe? My daughter whipped this Simple Banana Nut Bread up for us one afternoon. It only has a few ingredients and you probably have them in your pantry right now!

For more cake recipes see my dessert page. When we went to Maui, Hawaii last year and they had “the best” banana bread for sale in all the stores made by local bakers.

We were sitting around thinking about how great the bread was and decided to make some of our own. We found this recipe on Allrecipes first and after a little tweaking it turned out pretty amazing.

This bread came out so moist and yummy that it’s hard to believe there weren’t a ton of ingredients. We added some cinnamon and nuts to make it more like most banana bread recipes.

You can serve this by the slice, but how we like to eat banana bread is by slathering it with butter and frying it for a few minutes until it is crispy brown on both sides. It is heavenly, you must try it.

Here is our version of this new family favorite.
