Banana Bread Recipe..Plus Bag Winner

Banana bread...


...a fall treat that's easy and satisfying.


Well, the winner of my 2 Year Bag-i-versary bag is Riet...

(Riet...please send your mailing address to me at heather(dot)woollove(at)

...and for the rest of you, here's a sweet recipe to try!


1/2 c butter
1 c sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
3 very ripe bananas
2 eggs
1 &  1/4 c flour
1/2 c chopped pecans or walnuts

Cream butter and sugar.
Add remaining ingredients and mix until smooth.
Spread into greased 10 X 13-inch pan.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes.

Note:I buy extra bananas and let them get overly ripe, then pop them into the freezer for later use.

Heather, I think Riet is away for a few day, so don't worry if you don't hear from her just yet!
Love, Mattie

Heather Woollove said...

Mattie--Thanks for letting me know! (I hope it will be a nice 'welcome home' for her after her travels!)

Unknown said...

Yeah Riet! I know she will be thrilled!!

WonderWhyGal said...

Congrats to Riet!

That bread looks delicious. I recently found a way to make my breads the gluten-free way. I had pumpkin the other day...and it was amazing. Now to skip off to figure out how to modify my recipe so I can have banana bread because yours looks delicious.

Heather Woollove said...

Kelly--I HOPE so!! She was a bit disturbed by the 'disappearing dye' I hope she's 'over it' by now! Giggle.
Andrea--Oh, I hope you can modify it for your use.
It's such a plain and satisfying treat.

Tamara Miller said...

I am definitely going to try this recipe! I love bananas.

Heather Woollove said...

Tamara--I like this recipe because it makes a big pan full...and gets cooked all the way through in a short time, unlike some loaf pan ones.

Melissa Plank said...

How lucky for the bag-i-versary winner, that bag is awesome! I am going to try the banana bread recipe later today, I have some over ripe bananas in the freezer right now, it looks so yummy!

Heather Woollove said...

It's always nice when the giveaway winner is someone who regularly reads the blog, isn't it?

Thanks for the banana bread recipe. I'm going to add it to my wish list -- the husband has been baking on the weekends, a strange but welcome new occurrence :-)

FeltersJourney said...

Mmmm yum - shall have to try this banana bread!

Congrats Riet :) And happy Blog-i-versary to you Heather xx

Heather Woollove said...

Mary--How lovely...your own Alton Brown!!
Deborah--Thanks! I made another batch of banana bread today (quality control, of course...not 'cause I'm greedy!). :)

Spinster Beth said...

I like to put bittersweet chocolate morsels in my banana bread ;)

Heather Woollove said...

Beth---Oooooh, yum! I sometimes make a banana snack cake recipe from an ancient Pillsbury Cookbook that calls for chocolate chips. This one is much more pedestrian...but nice and 'banana-y'.

Dawn Edwards/Felt So Right said...

Congratulations Riet...Could you stop by one day and show me your new Heather bag? ;-))) What a wonderful gift and reminder of our fun (and dear) Heather...What a joy!


Heather Woollove said...
