Banana Nut Bread with Pecans
I have loved…no, been obsessed with banana bread since I was a child. Instead of birthday cake I always wanted banana bread with a thick smear of butter. That to me is the perfect treat. I found this recipe for The Perfect Banana Bread and used the base while adding my own extra flavors. I like extra vanilla, cinnamon and nuts.
The other great thing about banana nut bread is just how easy it is to make. You literally just need to mix it, pour into a loaf pan then bake. The hardest part is letting it cool before slicing.
This banana bread is made with pecans because those are my favorite nut. If you prefer walnuts or almonds over pecans, go ahead and swap in your favorite nut.

How Do You Keep Banana Bread Moist
I keep my banana bread in a gallon plastic bag and leave one corner unsealed to prevent moisture from being trapped. This keeps it fresh and prevents sogginess.
If storing in the refrigerator to extend the life, let cool completely then wrap tightly with plastic wrap or foil. Then the banana bread can be stored in the refrigerator or freezer.
