Banana Nut Bread Recipe

   Ingredients required
6 very ripe bananas
2/3 cup white sugar
2/3 cup light brown sugar
1/3 cup chopped walnuts
1/3 cup chopped pecans
2 1/2 tablespoon applesauce
1 1/4 sticks margarine or butter
3 eggs
2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Preheat oven 325 degrees

Instructions for Banana Nut Bread Recipe

   Cream margarine (butter is better), all the sugar, and then add everything else except flour and baking powder. Mix thoroughly, so that bananas are very mashed up and mixed into other ingredients. Mix flour and baking powder thoroughly, then add slowly to Banana mixture, stirring constantly with a fork. Do not beat, or it will not rise properly. Pour mixture into well greased and lightly floured loaf pan and bake 1 hour. Remove with slightly cooled. The bread will break the length of the top, and will brown well so that it will be obviously done. Best served warm with butter, but will keep in fridge.
