Delicious, Moist, and Perfectly Textured Banana Nut Bread Made With Kefir!
Have you ever had the "BEST Banana Nut Bread"? Well here it is! I have made this treasured recipe many times with my home-brewed probiotic kefir! This banana nut bread is so delectable and I always get praises for it; I like to make it in small loaves and give it to friends and family wrapped up in cello polypropylene bags printed with elegant ivory lace that I sell in my etsy shop:
I also sell the organic kefir grain cultures in my etsy shop if you would like to make your own...all you need to do is purchase them once and you can make delicious, healthy kefir indefinitely!
Blissful Banana Nut Bread
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/4 cup mashed ripe bananas
1/4 cup kefir
*You can add chopped walnuts or pecans if desired (I do!)
Preheat oven to 350°F. In a medium sized bowl, cream the butter and sugar together until light and creamy. Beat in egg and set aside. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, bananas, and kefir; stirring just enough to mix. Add the first mixture to the banana mixture; stirring enough to combine well. Turn into greased 9x5 inch loaf pan or mini loaf pans. Bake for 50-60 minutes at 350°F. Cool in big loaf pan or mini loaf pans for 10 minutes. Remove and finish cooling on a rack. Enjoy!
