|James Beard's Banana Bread w/ Almonds|
1/4 c. butter
1/2 c. granulated sugar
1/2 c. honey
1 1/2 c. mashed, over-ripe bananas
1 1/2 c. all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 sliced nuts (we use almonds)
Cream the butter with wooden spoon. Add the sugar and honey and beat till creamy and light. Add the eggs, one at a time, then thoroughly mix in the bananas. Sift together the flour, soda, and salt and blend thoroughly into the mixture. Finally, fold in the nuts.
Butter one 12 x 4 1/2 x 2 1/2 loaf tin and pour in the batter. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 1 hour. (note: I like to cover my bread lightly with foil so that the top doesn't get too brown)
She's all better now, just in time for spring break! Unfortunately, we're not going away, but we are going to head to DC for a couple days since it's going to be a nice week.
Hope everyone has a wonderful week!
