I made this Banana Bread this morning. The Monkey went on a business trip so we had some pretty old bananas laying around, looking sad and lonely. So, rather than let them turn completely into candy, I decided to repurpose them before it was too late. Mr. Smith expressed his desire for banana bread sans walnuts (are you kidding? What's the point?)
The result is absolutely wonderful. I can highly recommend this recipe. The bread is delicate (probably because of the cake flour) and light. Not the usual heavy, oily banana bread.
I made two smaller loaves instead of the one big loaf, so the baking time is shorter. So, if you have a couple of oldish bananas around, go for it. Even without the walnuts, it would be wonderful.
