You will need: 9x5x3 inch loaf pan, a medium bowl, a mixing spoon, an electric mixer, measuring spoons, measuring cups, a table fork, a table knife, oven mitts and a wire rack. 1. Turn the oven on to 350 F. Grease the loaf pan. Combine the butter or margarine, sugar, eggs and vanilla in the bowl. Beat on med. speed, just until moistened.
2. Mash enough of the bananas with the fork to make 1 cup. Add to the batter in the bowl along with the milk. Beat on low speed to blend in. (Eat any leftover bananas) 3. Add the next 5 ingredients.
Beat on low speed until the flour mixture is moistened. 4. Use the spoon to stir in the walnuts. Turn the bqtter into the loaf pan. Bake on the center rack in the oven for 50-60 minutes. A wooden toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf should come out clean and dry.
Use the oven mitts to remove the pan to the wire rack. Let stand for 15 minutes. Cut around the sides with the knife to loosen. Turn the pan upside down onto the wire rack to remove the loaf. Turn the loaf right side up. Cool completely. Store the loaf in a plastic bag.
This slices more easily when it is 1 day old. Makes 1 loaf.
