Butterscotch Banana Bread

13 Jan

My good friend Karen gave me this recipe. Makes two loaves, one for eating and one for giving away or freezing!

– 3-1/2 cups unsifted white flour
– 4 tsp. baking powder
– 1 tsp. baking soda
– 1 tsp. cinnamon
– 1 tsp. nutmeg
– 1 tsp. salt
– 2 cups ripe bananas, mashed (4-6 medium bananas)
– 1-1/2 cups sugar
– 2 eggs
– 1/2 cup butter, melted
– 1/2 cup milk
– 2-1/2 cups finely chopped walnuts or pecans, divided
– One 12 oz pkg. Nestle Butterscotch Morsels, or 12 oz combination of butterscotch, peanut butter, white chocolate, semi-sweet, or milk chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt; set aside. In large bowl, combine bananas, sugar, eggs and butter; beat until creamy. Gradually add flour mixture alternately with milk; mix until well blended. Stir in 2 cups chopped nuts and butterscotch morsels. Pour batter into two well-greased and floured 9” x 5” x 3” loaf pans. Sprinkle tops equally with remaining nuts.

Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes (I err on the shorter side so the bread doesn’t dry out). Cool 15 minutes; remove from pans. Freezes well.

    Southeast Asian farmers first domesticated bananas. Recent archaeological and palaeoenvironmental evidence at Kuk Swamp in the Western Highlands Province of Papua New Guinea suggests that banana cultivation there goes back to at least 5000 BCE, and possibly to 8000 BCE.**^;

    The main dish is usually the heaviest, heartiest, and most complex or substantive dish on a menu. The main ingredient is usually meat or fish; in vegetarian meals, the main course sometimes attempts to mimic a meat course..`;.
