banana bread.

This banana bread recipe is probably my all time favorite!  We first tried out the recipe on our anniversary trip in West Virginia back in November and we loved it.  I came across it on the Duggar’s family website — nothing like some good homecooking recipes from a family of 21!  Right out of the oven, top this bread off with some Woodbine Pumpkin Butter and you’ve got yourself some real tasty stuff.

Saint John Banana Bread

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 cups sifted flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 large bananas
1 cup chopped nuts
1 teaspoon melted butter
cinnamon-sugar mixture

Cream butter + sugar.  Beat in eggs, one at a time.  Mix in sifted dry ingredients.  Beat in mashed bananas.  Add nuts.  Pour into a greased + floured 9x5x3 pan.  Bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes.  While bread is still warm, brush with melted butter + sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar.  Makes 1 loaf.
