Ingredients

  • 8

    tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened, plus more for the pan

  • 2

    cups all-purpose flour, plus more for the pan

  • 1

    tablespoon baking powder

  • ½

    teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • ¼

    teaspoon salt

  • 2

    large ripe bananas, peeled

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ½

    cup sugar

  • 1

    large egg

  • ½

    cup raisins

  • ½

    cup chopped pecans

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Butter a 9-by-5-by-3-inch loaf pan. 2. Sift the 2 cups of flour, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt into a bowl. Mash the bananas with the vanilla with a potato masher until smooth. Cream the 8 tablespoons of butter and sugar in a separate mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add the egg and beat until well blended. Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture alternately with the masked banana, raisins, and pecans, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan, smoothing the top. Bake until golden brown and a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Let coll 10 minutes before removing the pan.
