Foodie Friday: Banana Nut Bread


Fall means more baking and this is one of my favorite recipes. I was given this recipe by my great-great aunt when she still lived at home. When she got older and was moved to an assisted living I made sure to always try and bring her a loaf of this bread or a loaf of her Buttermilk Cake. I hope that you enjoy this recipe as much as she did.


  • 1 1/2 C. Sugar
  • 1/2 C. Crisco
  • 4 Tbs. Buttermilk
  • 1 Tsp. Soda
  • 1 Tsp. Vanilla
  • 1 C. Chopped Pecans
  • 1 C. Mashed Banana (I typically use 2)
  • 1 1/2 C. Flour
  • 2 Eggs


  1. Grease and flour a 9×5 baking pan and set aside. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Combine flour and soda a bowl, whisk together and set aside.
  3. Mix sugar and Crisco, combine well. Add eggs one at a time mixing in between.
  4. Add buttermilk and vanilla to sugar mix. Combine well and add mashed bananas.
  5. Mix in flour mix 1/2 cup at a time until all is combined.
  6. Stir in chopped pecans.
  7. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 65 minutes or until a took pick inserted in the center comes out with old dry crumbs.

I hope that you enjoy this recipe as much as I do. What are your favorite fall recipes? Have a great Friday and reset of your weekend.

  1. Whenever I have bananas that start getting brown I stick them in the freezer until I have time to make banana bread. It is a family favorite here. A couple years ago when our blueberries started producing I began adding blueberries to my banana bread. It takes it to a whole new level of awesome.
