Banana Bread

Banana Bread with tea is always a good treat on a cool, Fall day.

Can I tempt you

This one has lots of walnuts in it or on it. You choose.

                      Quick Banana Bread
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg beaten
1 cup bran
1 1/2 cup mashed bananas
2 tbsp water
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp soda
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (you can put them in the mixture or add to the top of the bread)

Cream the butter, gradually adding the sugar.
Add the beaten egg and the all-bran. Mix thoroughly.
Stir the mashed bananas with the water.
Sift together the flour, salt, baking powder and soda.
Add this to the creamed mixture alternately with the bananas.
Add vanilla and mix.
Put in 8 x 8 bread pan
Bake 350 for 1 hour
If you want to make this into muffins bake for 25 minutes.

My Fall tea-cup is out of the cupboard and close at hand now.

The sun is shining and I'm gearing up to start my 5 km walk again today. First, I visit Bud and Chase and get them comfortable for their day.
They are such posers.
They will be window gazing all day as the squirrels and birds tease the heck out of them.

Have fun guys. Daddy will be home in the flick of a tail.

hugs, Deb
