Banana Nut Bread!

I've never made banana nut bread before so I was surprised with the results. You can't go wrong with this recipe:

  • 1 ¾ cups bread flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas [about 3]
  • 1/3 cup margarine or butter [softened]
  • 2 tbsp. milk [i substituted with soy milk]
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon (optional)

1. Pre-heat oven to 350°F.

2. In a small bowl combine all dry ingredients [except for sugar] & stir together.

3. In another medium sized bowl, combine margarine and sugar with a mixer. Cream the margarine and sugar until light and fluffy.

4. Add in mashed bananas and then eggs. Mix well.

5. Add half of dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, mix until flour is just mixed in. Then add the remaining dry mix and ½ cup of nuts.

6. Blend everything together but don’t over stir.

7. Pour batter into greased 8x4 inch loaf pan. Then top batter with remaining walnuts.

8. Bake for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes on wire rack.

First Post! An Introduction..

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Vicky Sithy and I am a photographer, writer, baker, and life enthusiast. I own my own photography business called Sithy Photography and have been successfully enjoying this hobby for 5 years now. I've also recently added restaurateur to my resume, opening a Thai & Chinese restaurant in March of 2012 and a second Asian fusion bistro in November 2013. 

I initially decided to create a blog to share baking recipes and photos, combining my love of food and sweets with my love of photography; creating some serious eye-candy, thus, the name Sugar Junkie.

Then, I started traveling. My new found adventurism lead me to try new things. 

Now I write about traveling, beauty, product reviews, questions from readers, tips and how-to's, life lessons learned and everything else in between. I'd love for this blog to inspire others to enjoy the sweet things in life, just as I am trying to everyday. So welcome to my blog and enjoy by following me through my addiction to all the sweet things in life.
