Banana Nut Bread Recipe

Step 1

In large bowl, mix 1 1/4 cups flour, 1/2 cup sugar, salt and undissolved yeast.

Step 2

Heat evaporated milk, water, and margarine to 120F-130F. Margarine need not melt. Add to dry ingredients; beat 2 minutes at medium speed of mixer. Add eggs, banana, and 1 cup flour; beat at high speed 2 minutes. Stir in pecans and enough remaining flour to make stiff dough. Knead 8 to 10 minutes. Set in greased bowl; grease top. Cover; let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.

Punch dough down. Divide in half; shape into loaves. Place in 2 greased 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 x 2 1/2 inch loaf pans. Cover; let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.

Step 4

Mix remaining sugar and cinnamon. Brush loaves with melted margarine; top with sugar mixture. Bake at 375F 25 to 35 minutes. Cool.
