Banana Nut Bread is always a crowd pleaser! Makes two loaves. Keep one and share one!
3 cups sugar
1 cup corn oil
2–1/2 cups ripe mashed bananas
3–1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1–1/2 teaspoons salt
1 cup chopped pecans
Grease and flour two 9×5 loaf pans.
In a large mixing bowl, beat sugar, oil, eggs and bananas.
In a separate bowl whisk together flour, soda and salt.
Slowly add flour mixture into banana mixture.
Stir in nuts.
Pour batter into the pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 60-75 minutes.
Begin checking with a cake tester at 60 minutes. When it comes out clean bread is done.
You can slice the bread, wrap each piece individually and freeze it. When you are having company, thaw it out and then place it on a cookie sheet and toast it lightly in the oven. Top with chocolate syrup and vanilla ice cream for a decadent dessert!
