Banana Nut Bread

Today finally I was able to post banana nut bread recipe from my favorite book (which I got atleast a month ago.)
Though its an easy recipe to try I was too lazy to post it and I owe my laziness to the "little bun in my oven" which is quite ready to come but is enjoying its stay inside by keeping both mom & dad waiting and tasting some delicious delicacies cooked by my husband.I hardly cook anything these days, thanks to my husband who is always ready to cook anything which the baby wants and the mom demands :)
here is the recipe of banana nut bread from " essentials of baking'
Iam sure my little angel must have enjoyed while I ate my slice of bread.

large ripe bananas
1 and 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 tablespoon grated orange zest
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
2 large eggs
3/4 firmly packed brown sugar
6 tablespoon unsalted butter melted
1/2 cup whole milk
Bananas and orange zest

Step 1
Using a fork mash bananas and keep it aside.Bananas should be 1and 3/4 when mashed.In another bowl mix together all purpose flour , whole wheat flour , baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg ,orange zest and nuts.

Step 2 In a large bowl beat eggs,sugar milk and butter.Add the dry ingredients and the mashed bananas alternatively and mix with a spatula until the batter is moistened.

Step 3
Transfer the contents into a buttered pan and bake on 350 degrees for 55 - 60 mins. Insert a fork to check if its done.

let it cool for sometime and then serve ..
