Banana Nut Bread by Dolores Tellez
Videography and Production by Sarah Lugo

Dolores Tellez is a biology/pre-nurse major who happens to love baking! In the video, Dolores is baking a loaf of banana nut bread for her family. She also shares with me how she started baking and what she’s learned from it. 

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (unsifted)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup (8 tablespoons) butterfat room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ⅓ cups mashed ripe bananas (3-4 bananas)
  • 1 teaspoon milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup chopped nuts

Directions:
In a medium bowl add flour, salt, and baking powder and whisk until it’s well combined. Then, in a big mixer bowl add butter and sugar to cream together until it’s light and fluffy. Next, add two eggs and mix again till well combined. In a separate bowl peel the bananas and mash them. Once they’re mashed add the vanilla extract and milk and mix together. Then, alternate adding the dry ingredients from earlier and the banana mixture into the butter (mixer) bowl. Afterwards, add your nuts into the new mixture and pour into a buttered loaf pan. Now heat the oven to 350° F and bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes. Once it’s done, take the bread out of the oven and let it cool for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes give the pan a few taps on the counter to loosen the bread, remove it from the pan, and enjoy!
