Loaded with banana flavor and just the right hint of maple, this old-fashioned walnut-topped loaf is easy to prepare and tastes wonderful warm from the oven. "I sent a loaf of this bread to work with my husband, and his co-workers loved it," relates Amy Hawk of Seabrook, New Jersey.

Ingredients

  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup mashed ripe banana (2 to 3 medium)
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons fat-free milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon maple flavoring
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts

Directions

  1. In a bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Combine the eggs, bananas, butter, milk and flavoring; mix well. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Spoon into an 8x4-in. loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with walnuts.
  2. Bake at 350° for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.
