This is a recipe worth reposting.  It gets a lot of consistent hits.


Starbuck’s came out with their own Banana Bread about four years ago.  At least that’s when I first saw it in the bakery section.  A few weeks after I first saw it there, they started distributing the recipe, so here it is.  It’s easy to make and very tasty and it gets walnuts into the diet.


2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 egg

1-1/8 cups sugar

1/2 cup vegetable oil

2 Tablespoons buttermilk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 ripe medium-large bananas

1/2 cup plus 1/3 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.  Grease a 9 x 5 x 3 loaf pan and dust with flour.  Blend together the flour, baking soda and salt and set aside.  Mix together the egg, sugar and vegetable oil until combined.  Add the flour mixture and when blended, add the buttermilk, vanilla and mashed bananas and mix until combined.  Fold in 1/2 cup chopped walnuts and pour batter into prepared loaf pan.  Top batter with remaining 1/3 cup chopped wlanuts.  Bake for 45 to 60 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack before removing from pan.  Makes one loaf.
