Ok y’all, it’s close enough to Fall for me to be pulling out the baking stops. As per usual I had some bananas that were looking pretty close to being gnat fodder, so I went in search of a new banana bread recipe. My search yielded this gem! I wasn’t in a chocolate chip kinda mood so I made a couple changes and it turned out fantastic! If the combination sounds like a winner to you, give it a try! Here’s what I did…
Butterscotch Pecan Banana Bread
1/2 c. melted butter
1 c. sugar
1 T. vanilla
1/2 c. sour cream
1 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
1-2 t. cinnamon
1-2 t. nutmeg
1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 – 3/4 c. butterscotch morsels
1/2 – 3/4 c. chopped pecans
Preheated the oven to 350*, greased a loaf pan with Baker’s Joy. Threw the first 9 ingredients into a large bowl and mashed it all up with a potato masher. Poured in the flour and mixed with a spoon, scraping down sides with a spatula. Poured morsels & nuts into the bowl and stirred to combine. Poured it into the pan and cooked for about 65 minutes.
So banana-y moist and not too sweet, just the right amount with the butterscotch chips! I would make this over and over again, everyone loved it! The better half said it could have used more cinnamon, but we could all taste it, so – if you like a lot of cinnamon, keep sprinkling!
Have a great Tuesday everyone!!
