baked Banana Nut Bread loaves on rackGreat way to use those ripe bananas to have for delicious loaves later! I also love to have them in the freezer to give individuals or couples (since I make small loaves) or as a small thank you gesture. Homemade is always appreciated!


Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes-60 minutes

Yield: 2 regular loaves or 4 smaller loaves

Banana Nut Bread


  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 very ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup walnuts or your favorite nut


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Butter and flour 2 full size or 4 small loaf pans (I used 5 but they could have been fuller with four pans).
  2. greased & floured pans
  3. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar, then mix in the eggs, one at a time.
  4. mixing butter & sugar
    adding egg to butter & sugar

  5. In a second bowl, sift together flour, baking soda and salt and stir to mix.
  6. adding dry ingredients to bowl

  7. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mix.
  8. adding dry to wet ingredients
  9. In the emptied second bowl I mashed my bananas to save clean up time.
  10. smashing Banana
  11. My mixture got pretty thick and so I used one clean hand to mix. Note: I now only use one hand since murphy's law means I will need to grab a phone or utensil with the other one as soon as I plunge both hands in!
  12. mixing dough with hand

  13. I added 1/2 cup of walnuts and mixed. Then I added the mashed bananas and it loosened up. Next time I would probably add the banana mash first for easier mixing.
  14. adding nuts to batter

  15. Spoon your mix into your pans and bake for 45-60 minutes, testing with a toothpick.
  16. batter in pans
  17. A really good recipe. I added butter to the hot slices in the last picture... but not necessary. I just couldn't wait any longer!

This is a very rich and delicious tea bread. So much flavor locked into every bite and it's about as easy to make as anything can be. Whether eaten for breakfast, lunch, dinner or a bedtime snack, this tea bread will let you know just how much "somebody loves you".

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 2 (9 inch) loaf pans. Beat cake mix, bananas, buttermilk, oil, and eggs in a large bowl on medium speed about 2 minutes; stir in the chopped nuts.


Pour into pans.

Combine dry ingredients; stir in nuts and set aside. Combine remaining ingredients, add to dry ingredients, stirring just until batter is moistened.

When I make this recipe for us, I cut the recipe in half and I either make 1 loaf, or approximately 10 muffins.
