Butter Pecan Banana Bread

Butter Pecan Banana Bread. Try and say that 5 times fast! I am not a fan of anything banana. I am allergic to the raw ones, and anything banana flavored gives me a bad case of the gags. However, my daughter loves them. But not enough to eat a whole bunch. Even though she promised, that THIS time she would eat them before they went bad. Why not buy just 1 banana you say? Because then I wouldn’t have an excuse to make the one banana thing I do love, Banana Bread.

I usually just make the original, but today I thought “What could I do to make this extra sinful?”. Well my first instinct was add butter. And after a few minutes of rummaging through the cabinets, I found two things that I couldn’t believe I had never paired before: Pecans and Molasses.

I toasted pecans in a skillet, added butter, molasses,  and brown sugar, and a tiny bit of water. I just poured this over the top of the hot loaf when it was finished baking. And good golly miss molly it was good!!!

  • ½ cup pecans
