Meme's Banana Bread

This is one of my favorite Banana Bread recipes, created by my adopted American mother, Mary Lou Causby. Grab a cup of tea and enjoy!


  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 large bananas, mashed
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped


Preheat the oven to 350°. Beat the butter and sugar until creamy and pale. Add the eggs, one at a time, and beat until combined. Add flour, baking powder, salt and vanilla. Once combined, stir in the mashed bananas and nuts. Pour the mix into a greased bread pan. Bake for about 45 minutes, or until ta oothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean.
