Grandma's Banana Nut Bread
IntroductionPassed down over the generations. I never finish all the bananas I buy so I make one of these every week it seems. Let your bananas get good and ripe and sweet for this.

2 cups flour
1 cup of sugar
1 cup+ chopped walnuts (my dad throws in 1.5 cups, yum I was doing the original 1 cup)
1 tsp Baking Soda
half stick Butter, unsalted, melted
1 large Egg
My dad taught me to melt the butter first and then mix in the dry ingredients. I whisk the dry ingredients together so the baking soda is even throughout and the rise is even. The extra banana makes it even more delicious and I love the idea that my dad adds the extra walnuts, 1.5 cups now.
Melt butter in a mixing bowl on low heat.
Carefully work in dry ingredients into butter, add egg and bananas and mix well.
Bake in a greased, wax paper- lined loaf pan 350F for at least an hour. Check with a toothpick, it should come out clean.
Try to let it cool a moment before you dig in for that first warm, delicious, slice.
My friends at work love this so for parties I slice it thin then slice those in half and arrange on a serving tray so everyone can get a piece. At home I like a thick slice warmed up and hot cup of tea.
