Pecan Banana Bread

Fun fact! ...I hate banana's! Always have, probably always will and it's not just the taste it's the texture too, but banana bread on the other hand is one of my favourite things to eat -I know...odd!

For years I'd never attempted to make any, my gran makes it all the time so I've never had much need to, but I really wanted to give it a go and make one of my own. She very kindly gave me her recipe and after tweaking it a little to make it more to our taste, and after a few not-so successful (fail) outcomes we ended up with what is our absolute favourite and it's so simple to do. To make things a little different I wanted to add some pecans, mainly because I would add pecan nuts to anything given the chance, and I thought the flavours would work well together -and I'm happy to say they do! Something about it also feels very autumnal so what better time than now :)

Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees then grease and line a 9 inch loaf tin.

In a large bowl mash your banana's until you have no large lumps left and then stir in your sugar.

Add your beaten egg and melted butter and mix through, then add in your flour, baking powder, chopped pecans and mix until fully combined.

Pour your mix into your prepared loaf tin and bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour. I find 1 hour to be perfect in our oven, but they're all different so you're best to check, when a knife comes out clean you know you're there.

Let it cool in the tin and then slice up and enjoy. My preferred way to eat it is when it's still warm, topped with butter with a cup of tea.

Super easy and super tasty! I'm now off to enjoy the last lonely slice in the kitchen...shhh!
