2/3 cup sugar
2 very ripe bananas
4 tbsp melted butter or vegetable oil
1/3 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a loaf pan with some butter.
In a large bowl, beat the sugar and butter. Add the eggs one at a time. Mash the bananas and add them to the mixutre along with the vanilla. Beat for 1 minute.
In a seperate bowl sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Alternately add the flour and the milk into the banana mixture, mixing just until blended. Reserve one tablespoon of the flour and toss the walnuts in it. This prevents the walnuts from settling at the bottom of the bread while baking. Fold in the walnuts. Pour the batter into the pan.
Bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the loaf comes out clean. (50-60 mins). Remove bread from pan and let cool.
