Happy Fall

This morning Colette (4 yr. old) and I made banana bread, wrapped each loaf and put it in a bag with a tag that she made. It was an easy and fun project and we plan to give them as gifts. Below is the recipe we used. It was given to me years ago by my husband's secretary and is the only one I ever use. Enjoy!

BANANA NUT BREAD

1/2 C. butter
1 C. sugar
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla
1 1/2 C. flour
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1/2 C. sour cream
1 C. mashed bananas
1/2 c. chopped pecans or walnuts

Cream together the butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Sift dry ingredients. Alternate dry ingredients with sour cream. Beat well. Fold in bananas and nuts. Bake in 350 degree oven for 1 hour or until brown.
