Banana Nut Bread



Well this past weekend was a rainy, cold weekend. There wasn't much going on outside that I could do so I had to do some baking inside.

Now of course I had 3 bananas laying around way past their time and I had to do something with them. I wasn't in the mood to make the same old banana bread that I usually make, so I was on the hunt for a new recipe.

I started combing through my stack of recipes that I've cut or printed from the internet. After flipping through a few I found a recipe that Amy Grant had printed in a magazine. It was her grandma Grant and it look like just what I was looking for, so I decided to give it a try.

So I went to work making this recipe and it turned out to be amazing. It had hardly cooled when my family started cutting into it. I made this late Saturday afternoon and by Sunday afternoon only about 1/3 of the loaf was left.

This Banana bread is very good. It has chopped pecans in it which gives it a wonderful flavor and it is very moist. I am most definitely going to make this one again.
