Banana Nut Bread and Raisin Bran Muffins, that will last in the refrigerator for about six weeks. The Banana Bread makes the house smell really great while it is baking, and comes out moist really flavorful. Hope you enjoy both.

Banana Nut Bread

1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2 medium or 3 small)
2 tablespoons 2% milk
1 teaspoon either vanilla or rum extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup chopped pecans

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the bananas, milk and extract. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl and mix well. Gradually add to banana mixture and stir just until moistened. Fold in nuts.
Pour into a greased 9-inch x 5-inch loaf pan. Bake in a preheated 325 degree oven for 65-75 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool.

Yield is about 16 slices.
