Hana Banana Bread

Servings Yield: 1 Loaf


  • 6 Tbs butter, room temperature
  • 1/3 Cup sugar
  • 2 Eggs, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 Cups super ripe bananas (about 5)
  • 1 1/2 Cups all purpose flour
  • 1 Tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 Tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt
  • 1/4 Tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 Cup Coarsely broken macadamia nuts


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. In a mixing bowl cream the butter and sugar together and add the eggs.
  3. Mash the bananas and add to the mixing bowl.
  4. Stir in 1 cup flour and add the baking soda, baking powder, salt and vanilla extract. Stir to blend and add the remaining 1/2 cup flour.  It's important that you stir only to blend the ingredients thoroughly and moisten the flour. Don't over stir or the loaf will be tough.
  5. Stir in the broken nuts.
  6. Pour and spoon the mixture into a medium (8" x 4") baking pan, buttered or Teflon, sides and bottom lined with buttered wax paper. Level with the spatula.
  7. Place the pan in the middle shelf of the oven and bake for about 50-60 minutes, or until dark brown and a wooden skewer inserted in the center comes out clean.
  8. Gently lay the loaf on its side on a metal cooling rack and tug at the ends of the wax paper to slip the loaf from the pan. Allow the bread to cool before cutting.
