Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F with the rack in the middle of the oven. Butter an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 - inch loaf pan, set aside.

In a bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.

In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter, sugar and brown sugar on medium speed for about 3 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time and mix well after each. Mix in the vanilla and heavy cream.

Remove the bowl from the mixer and use a rubber spatula to stir, alternate adding the dry ingredients and the mashed bananas in 3 batches, mixing just enough to combine them. Add the nuts and mix just to combine.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth out the top. Bake for about 1 hour or until a tester comes out clean. If the top is over browning after 45 minutes, gently drape the top with foil.

    Awesome Banana Bread recipe. I made this for a breakfast function and it was the first thing to be finished off with several repeat takers. I doubled the recipe without any problems and dry roasted the pecans just for extra flavor. Definitely a keeper.

    Have tried many banana bread recipes and they are never quite right. This one, however, is just perfect! It is moist and tasty. My staff ate the entire loaf in one morning and all said it was the best they had ever eaten.

    Great recipe by pastry chef, Zoe Francois. I LOVED it. It was moist and delicious. However, it was a bit sweet. Some may choose to pull back on the granulated sugar in the batter.

    In addition, I made a Crunchy Pecan Topping:
    1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
    ¼ cup light brown sugar, packed
    ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
    ¼ cup pecans, toasted and finely chopped
    1 tablespoon butter, melted (add more if necessary
    Combine and mix all ingredients except the butter. After mixing dry ingredients, add melted butter. Mix. Sprinkle over batter. Depress lightly.

    Definitely a keeper. ! :
