Banana Nut Bread

America, North: American

Banana nut bread is important to our family because everyone likes it. Mommy doesn't use recipes, so this is how she makes it. We make it every winter. We eat it with coffee and tea for breakfast.


1/3 cup oil
1 1/2 cup bananas
1/2 tsp. vanilla
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 cup chopped nuts


Smash the bananas up. Mix all ingredients together. Fill greased pan up 3/4 full and bake for 50 minutes at 350. Cover with foil and continue baking for about 30 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
