Banana Nut Cake
There’s no better way to welcome fall than with a marathon baking session, and this Banana Nut Cake is one of our all-time favorite fall treats. It channels all the flavors of the season—from ripe banana to buttery toasted pecan—to create a moist loaf that can be enjoyed at any time of day, from breakfast to afternoon snack-time to dessert. Pack a slice of this sweet cake in the kids’ lunchboxes or wrap up the loaf and bring it on a fall weekend picnic. With only 15 minutes of active time, this easy, homemade Banana Nut Cake makes a great homemade gift for teachers, instructors, or anyone deserving of thanks—just multiply the recipe to whip up a whole batch of loaves at once. Wrap them up in wax paper and a ribbon for a thoughtful seasonal gift. This classic banana bread would also freeze nicely to save for the holiday season.
