banana walnut bread

2 cups of bread flour [250g]
1 tsp of salt
2 tsp of baking soda
1 cup unsalted butter [227g]
1.5 cup of sugar [300g]
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 eggs, beaten
1 cup walnuts [108g]
2.5 cups banana

1. Cream butter and sugar
2. Add 1 tsp vanilla
3. Add eggs one at a time, mixing after each addition
4. Mix in mashed banana
5. Mix in dry ingredients (other bowl : sifted baking soda, bread flour and salt)
6. Stir in nuts
7. Bake for 55 mins (165 degrees)

The taste is moist, dense and bursting with rich banana flavor, coupled with freshly chopped walnuts for that extra crunch; this is the extreme banana walnut bread.

How did I do it?

For starters, I wanted something healthier so I used dark brown sugar instead of white sugar, thus resulting in a much darker loaf. I tweaked the recipes that I found here and here in order to come up with this recipe. I used way more banana than any other recipe out there, resulting in a heavier and less dense loaf . Well, enough talk.

Time to sink in.
