Maple-Banana Bread with Macadamia Nuts

Ingredients: 

  • 2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • ¼ Cup firmly packed Brown Sugar
  • ½ tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 Egg
  • ½ Cup Pure Maple Syrup
  • 1 tsp Maple Flavoring
  • 3 TBSP unsalted Butter, melted
  • 1 ½ Cups mashed ripe Bananas
  • 1 Cup Macadamia Nuts, chopped and toasted

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 9" x 5" loaf pan.

Sift all the dry ingredients together into a bowl.

In another bowl, combine the egg, Pure Maple Syrup, flavoring, butter and bananas. Whisk to blend.

Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Add the liquid ingredients all at once.

Stir until evenly moistened; the batter will be lumpy. Fold in the nuts.

Scrape the batter into the prepared pan.

Bake for 1 hour and 30 minutes.

Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then unmold onto a wire rack.
