Ingredients

  • 1 3/4

    cups plus 2 Tbs. all-purpose flour

  • 1 1/3

    cups granulated sugar

  • 1/2

    tsp. baking powder

  • 1

    tsp. baking soda

  • 3/4

    tsp. salt

  • 1

    cup chopped toasted walnuts or pecans

  • 1

    cup mashed banana (about 2 medium bananas, the blacker, the better)

  • 2

    large eggs, lightly beaten

  • 1/2

    cup plain yogurt (low-fat is fine)

  • 1/2

    cup vegetable oil

  • 1

    tsp. vanilla extract

Directions

Adjust the rack in the lower third of the oven and heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray. Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a large bowl. Stir in the walnuts. Combine the banana, eggs, yogurt, oil and vanilla; add to the flour mixture. Stir until just combined. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 1 hour, or until a cake tester inserted in the loaf comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in the pan, then turn the loaf out onto a rack to cool completely.
