  1. Banana Nut Bread


    • 3/4 cup butter, softened
    • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
    • 2 cups sugar
    • 2 eggs
    • 1-1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas (about 4 medium)
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 3 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 2 cups chopped pecans, divided

    • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
    • 3 tablespoons orange juice
    • 1 teaspoon grated orange peel

    • In a large bowl, cream the butter, cream cheese and sugar until light
    • and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each
    • addition. Beat in bananas and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking
    • powder, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Fold
    • in 1 cup pecans.
    • Transfer to two greased 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pans.
    • Sprinkle with remaining pecans. Bake at 350° for 1 to 1-1/4 hours or until a
    • toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
    • In a small bowl, whisk the glaze ingredients; drizzle over loaves.
    • Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.
    • Yield: 2 loaves (12 slices each).[​IMG]
  2. I like banana bread but not with glaze on it.
  3. I don't put the glaze on it . It is fine without.
