Maple Walnut Banana Bread

Loaded with banana flavor and just the right hint of maple, this old-fashioned walnut-topped loaf is easy to prepare and tastes wonderful warm from the oven.


12 servings


1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoons salt
2 large eggs
1 cup mashed ripe banana (2 to 3 medium)
3 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons fat-free milk
1/4 teaspoon maple flavoring
1/4 cup chopped walnuts


Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Grease an 8 x 4-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.

In a bowl, combine the flour, sugars, baking powder, soda and salt. Combine the eggs, bananas, butter, milk and flavoring; mix well. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Spoon into prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle with walnuts.

Bake for 50 to 55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a cooling rack.
