Moist Banana Bread without Applesauce

Moist Banana Bread

8 Servings
Difficulty: Easy

2/3 cup of Whole Wheat Flour
2/3 cup of Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon baking powder
4 tablespoons of salted butter
1/8 cup of vegetable oil
1/3 cup of white sugar
1/3 cup of brown sugar
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup ripe bananas, mashed (use immersion blender or processor to mash)
½ cup of walnuts, roughly chopped

Preheat oven at 350 degrees. Grease a 9″x5″ loaf pan. In a medium sized bowl, whisk the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder, and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat on medium speed the butter and sugar for about 2 minutes. Add the eggs slowly and continue to mix. Beat in the flour mixture until well blended. Lastly, pour bananas and vanilla into mixing bowl and beat for about 2 more minutes. Mix in nuts (optional). Pour batter into loaf pan and bake for about 50 minutes or until a toothpick or sharp knife comes out clean after checking center. The middle of the banana bread will “crack” when it is ready. Remember that the bread will continue to cook when it is removed from the oven. Let cool for about 10 minutes before removing from pan. Serve warm with butter and a cup of your favorite tea or coffee.
