Banana Bread 1940s

Banana Bread
1 1/2  C flour
1 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
1/2 t nutmeg (fresh grated if possible)
1/4 C butter (melted)
1/2 C brown sugar
1/2 C sugar
1 egg
3 bananas
1 1/2 C walnuts (chopped)

Preheat oven to 350F. Coat loaf pan with cooking spray. In a medium bowl sift together flour, baking soda, salt--(stop and grate the nutmeg) then add the nutmeg to the dry ingredients too. In a mixing bowl combine the butter, sugar(s), and egg, then add the bananas. I've found if the bananas are really ripe you can just break them into chunks right into the bowl and the mixer will mash them for you. Stir to combine. Add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Chop the walnuts and add to the batter. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 50-55 minutes (until toothpick test comes out clean.)

1940s Banana Bread baked from the cookbook Heirloom Baking with the Brass Sisters.
Good tasting banana bread with a bit of crunch to the crust. It looks burned, but it's not.
