I love pecans so I invented this recipe with left over very soft and mushy bananas and some pecans. It was quite delicious! And lovely for the cold autumn nights with a cup of cocoa, while you Netflix and chill.

Banana Bread with Pecans

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 50 minutes
This is my banana bread recipe in which I have added pecans instead of walnuts.


  • 1 Loaf Tin Size 2 pounds
  • 1 Parchment paper


  • 140 grama Self-raising flour
  • 140 grams Butter (softened )
  • 2 Eggs (large)
  • 2 Very ripe bananas (mashed )
  • 140 gms Sugar
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 50 grams Pecans (roughly chopped)


  • Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4.
  • Butter a 2lb loaf tin and line it with baking parchment.
  • Add sugar and butter together and mix throughly till creamy.
  • Add eggs and flour and mix thoroughly.
  • Add the baking powder, pecans and mix in the mashed bananas.
  • Pour the mixture into the tin and bake for 50 minutes or till cooked through.


Keep checking every 5 minutes after it has cooked for around 35 minutes. Test with skewer or knife by sticking it in the middle. If it comes out clean it is done!
Remove from oven and let it cool. Slice into 8 to 10 pieces.
