Banana Bread

I had been thinking about making banana bread since the beginning of the year. I bought the bananas almost 2 weeks ago and waited patiently for them to get super ripe (the skin turned completely black and had a strong smell). I used the Banana Bread recipe from AllRecipe.com and made the following changes:
  • added 3/4 teaspoon of nutmeg and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon into the dry ingredients
  • folded in 3/4 cup of chopped toasted walnuts into the banana mixture
  • sprinkled with a topping of 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1/3 cup chopped walnuts, 1/3 cup flour, 3 tablespoons melted butter and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon

Since I didn't have a 9x5 loaf pan, I used an 8x3 disposable aluminum loaf pan and silicone cupcake molds – baking the muffins for only 30 minutes.

I was happy with the results. This recipe is definitely a keeper. Next time, I will improvise by adding other seasonings just for fun.
