LaPiS: Bread-y (or Not)!

Seems like I wasn’t as (b)ready as I’d wanted for this post…thus the two-day delay for this LaPiS entry. 😐

That I couldn’t find anything in the pantry or fridge last night for my two boys’ packed snacks for school turned out to be a blessing in disguise though (not to mention hitting two breads birds with one stone too! 😎 ) as I ended up baking this easy favorite for them instead…

Some bananas, an egg, a little flour and a couple of little things here and there = Banana-Walnut Bread! πŸ˜€

Here’s the quick recipe:

WHAT YOU NEED: 4 bananas (smashed), 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar, 1/4 cup melted butter, 1 egg (beaten), 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1 tsp baking soda, 1/4 tsp salt, 1 1/2 cup flour, 1/4 cup chopped walnuts (leave about 6 pieces whole for topping)


  1. Mix bananas, butter, sugar, egg and vanilla.Β  Make sure everything is room temperature or the butter will solidify.
  2. Sift flour, salt and baking soda in a separate bowl. Mix well.
  3. Fold flour mixture into wet ingredients.Β  When totally dissolved, fold in chopped walnuts.Β 
  4. Pour into a loaf pan. Garnish with whole walnuts on top.
  5. Bake at 350F (or 177C) for 50 minutes.

  1. Yum! Love banana walnut bread.. i can have it for breakfast anytime… :o)

    You said it – had it for breakfast for 3 days straight! πŸ˜†


  2. good one! πŸ™‚ you should’ve asked your diva-lette over there if papasa na ba ‘to as substitute for her “banana cake”. πŸ™‚

    Hmmm…methinks medyo “mature” pa for her taste πŸ˜‰ She’d probably much rather have the plain one without nuts – but with candles! πŸ˜€


  3. ang sarap nito.

    Thanks, Alpha! πŸ™‚


  4. nyahahaha! buti ka nga na-challenge with your situation, ako nga i just recycled hehe:) i made bread again the day after posting the announcement! hahaha!

    Okay lang “recycled” kung kasing sarap naman ng “kitchen creations” mo! πŸ˜‰


  5. The H’s all-time favorite, banana-walnut bread, must make soon.

  6. That looks good. I’ve got my cup of coffee and a black and white, but I think I’d rather have a slice of that!

    That’s great, Rochelle! Please, help yourself to some… πŸ˜‰


  7. Very timely!

    Ssshhh! Ate Pinky, sa birthday ni Jose plano ko tlga siya gawan ng banana cake dahil paborito niya yun. Maraming salamat dito ha! Life saver ka talaga! πŸ™‚


  8. PS. Alam kong “bread” ito at hindi cake at mas na-excite tuloy ako kasi kakaiba ‘to. πŸ™‚

    Hey Twinx! Would love to see your version soon… πŸ˜‰ Am sure Jose would be so thrilled!


  9. Banana bread is another favorite in our kitchen too πŸ™‚ especially with nuts added.

    Hi JMom! Am sure you make one mean banana bread too (on top of all your other delish treats!). Thanks for dropping by! πŸ˜€


  10. i used to make banana bread/muffins on a regular basis hanggang sa nasuya na kami. hahaha! i always make mine with chocolate chips or a combination of chocolate chips and walnuts. πŸ™‚

    I know what you mean… super “lifesaver” kasi ito for bananas that will otherwise go to waste, di ba? And yes, I’ve tried the version with both walnuts and choco chips too and it was good! πŸ˜‰


  11. Wow! I can only look and say wow…kung me talent lang ako sa baking di na ko bumibili ng tinapay sa grocery…

    Banana bread is something my kids haven’t heard of lol, wala kasi dito πŸ˜€ Ipapakilala ko sa kanila, thanks for the recipe. Sana naman magtagumpay haha.

    Kayang-kaya mo ito, G! After black forest, this will literally be a piece of cake (or bread – hahaha!). Do share how it turns out. Ingat!
