"My dad made this bread for years to the delight to our family. Pair it with a dish of fruit and a cup of coffee for breakfast. Yum! The flax seed meal gives a great texture without altering the flavor."

Directions

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat an oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan, or line a muffin pan with cupcake liners.
  2. In a mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.
  3. Beat in the eggs one at a time, followed by the bananas.
  4. Mix in the self-rising flour and flax seed meal until just incorporated; fold in the walnuts.
  5. Pour batter into the prepared pan.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 20 minutes for muffins, or 1 hour for a loaf. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes
  • If you don't have the milled flax seed, substitute 1/4 cup self-rising flour.
  • Editor's Note:
  • No self-rising flour? Make your own with all-purpose flour, baking powder, and a little salt.

This is a wonderful banana bread. I did not have any flax seed meal, so made my own by putting flax seeds in the food processor. Also added 2 teaspoons of banana extract. BUT there must be an error in the bake time, wondering whether this is a publishing error as after 25 minutes like the recipe states my cake was still total goo! Had to cook for a total for 65 minutes.

Great recipe and super easy. I baked mine in my bread machine using the quick breads setting and it came out beautifully. This is now my official "go to" banana bread recipe.
