  • Notes:

    -How to Freeze: Freshly baked banana nut bread can be stored in the freezer for up to a month. Make sure your bread has cooled completely, then wrap it in plastic wrap and aluminum foil. You can also slice your bread before freezing – that way you can just grab as many slices as you need without having to defrost the whole loaf. -Using Ripe Bananas: When it comes to baking with bananas, brown and slightly over-ripe bananas are perfect. Brown bananas are sweeter and have a more pronounced flavor than they do when they’re golden yellow. They’re also easier to mash and better incorporate into your batter. -How to ripen bananas: If your bananas aren’t quite ripe enough yet, don’t despair! Place them in a brown paper bag and put them somewhere warm (like the top of your fridge) for a couple days. The paper bag will help trap the ethylene gas that the fruit gives off, converting the starch in the banana into sugar.
