I like simple things and simple cooking. My tattered copy of The Joy Of Cooking is always with me, and I refer to it often for basic recipes that I adapt to make my own, and I highly recommend it for every kitchen, whether antiquated or not. This recipe is a slight variation on the Joy Of cooking Quick Banana Bread recipe. Enjoy!
Preheat oven to 350°
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted
2/3 cup sugar
The juice of 1/2 lemon + 1 tsp grated lemon rind
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups ripe banana pulp
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pumpkin seeds
place batter in a 4×8″ greased bread pan. Top with 1/4 cup more nuts or seeds, and bake about 1 hour or until a toothpick stuck into the center comes out clean.
