Banana Nut Bread Recipe!

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans
2 eggs
1 cup mashed bananas **I add at least another half cup. This is about 2 maybe 3 regular sized bananas
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour two 8x4 inch loaf pans. Set aside.
Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Stir in nuts, eggs, bananas, oil, and vanilla extract.
Pour into prepared pans. Bake for 45 to 60 minutes. Cool on wire rack for 10 minutes before removing from pans.
*** Okay, so I got this recipe from I love that website! It's amazing! Sometimes I add chocolate chips! I add just a little more banana when I add the choc. chips so that the choc. is not overpowering. Instead of using 2 loaf pans, use a bunt pan. I don't have a bunt pan yet, so I use my angel food cake pan and it works just as well. Also, I would bake it less than 55 minutes if you want the bread moist. Sorry I don't have a picture of mine! We gobbled it up. ;o)
