Servings: 4

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 60-80 minutes


2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1 egg

1 1/8 cup sugar

1/2 cup canola oil

2 tbsp milk

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

3 ripe bananas

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

1/4 tsp cinnamon


Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

Make sure your mixer has the flat beater attachment in place. Put ripe bananas into the mixer bowl and turn to low (speed 2 on KitchenAid mixer) for one minute. Add sugar, oil, milk, vanilla extract, and egg. Using the same speed setting, mix the ingredients for one more minute.

Combine dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon) in a separate bowl and mix thoroughly. Pour dry ingredients into mixer bowl and run on same setting for one minute or until smooth. Pour the walnuts into the batter and mix using a spatula.

Place batter into a greased 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 x 2 1/2 inch baking pan (bread loaf pan). Put onto center rack in oven for 50-70 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.

Upon removing from oven, let the bread cool for ten minutes before removing from pan.
