Whole Wheat Banana Bread

Submitted by Scott and Laura Jerpbak

  • ½ cup butter or margarine
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup mashed ripe banana (about 3)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup hot water
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts

Melt butter and blend in sugar.   Mix in beaten eggs and mashed banana, blending until smooth. In another bowl, stir together dry ingredients until thoroughly blended.  Add dry ingredients to banana mixture alternately with hot water.  Stir in chopped nuts.  Spoon batter into greased 9 x 5 loaf pan.  Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour and 10 minutes until wooden skewer inserted in center comes out clean.  Cool in pan 10 minutes, then turn out onto a rack to cool completely.

Note: our twins prefer this made with ½ cup chocolate chips substituted for the nuts. Yummy!
