Spiced Up Banana Bread…

I do not know what my problem is, but it seems as though I cannot consume my bananas before they hit that nasty, brown, spotted stage. Maybe I subconsciously let them turn that way so I have an excuse to bake. Well, whatever the reason I had some bananas to use up, so I hit up allrecipes, dug into my recipe box and made one of my favorite Banana Bread recipes. I had all of the ingredients on hand, so I whipped this baby up in no time making some very simple revisions. The recipe is super easy and yields a deliciously moist banana bread. I added some cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla to give it a little oomph and impart a touch of fall. This bread is great toasted, slathered with whipped butter and served with a piping hot cup of coffee or tea. I hope you enjoy this one as much as I do!

Ingredients
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 1/3 cups mashed overripe bananas

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan.
2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. In a separate bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar. Stir in eggs and mashed bananas and vanilla until well blended.
3. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
4. Bake in preheated oven for 60 to 65 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.

I made this tonight, but added walnuts. Tastes great. Reminds me of the recipe my aunt made for us back in the day. It was my first time making banana bread. Thanks!
