Banana Bread

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

1 3/4 cup flour ½ tsp. nutmeg and allspice
2/3 cup sugar 1 cup mashed ripe banana (2 to 3 bananas)
2 tsp. baking powder 1/3 cup melted butter
½ tsp. baking soda 2 tablespoons milk
¼ salt 2 eggs
1 tsp cinnamon 1 cup chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts)

In a large mixer bowl combine 1 cup of the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Add mashed bananas, butter, and milk. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed till blended, then on high speed for 2 minutes. Add eggs and remaining flour; beat till blended. Stir in nuts.

Pour batter into greased loaf pan. Sprinkle with turbinado sugar (or regular). Bake for 55-60 minutes or till a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack. Remove from the pan; cool thoroughly on a wire rack. Wrap and store overnight before slicing. Or you can just ignore that, slice it, and eat it hot!
