Episode 005 - Walnuts

Updated: Mar 4, 2020

In the 5th episode of Elder Hour Juliet and Chelsea discuss the powerful Walnut! They dissect its historic connection to witchcraft, the reason it is deemed the Evil Tree, and the naughty connection it has to... well, you have to listen to find out.

Banana Bread with Walnuts

This is simply the best recipe for the most moist, perfectly sweetened, and easy banana bread. I added walnuts to this recipe, but they are totally optional. This recipe is so easy, you don’t even need a mixer – just mix everything with a big wooden spoon!

Servings: 10 people

Calories: 257 kcal


3 bananas , ripe, smashed

1/3 cup butter melted

3/4 cup sugar

1 egg beaten

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup walnuts chopped


Preheat the oven to 350 F.

In a large bowl, mix butter into the mashed bananas, using wooden spoon. Mix in the sugar, egg, and vanilla. Sprinkle the baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix in. Add the flour last, mix just enough to blend the ingredients; do not over0mix, the lumps will work themselves out.

Add chopped walnuts to the batter and mix them in to distribute evenly through the batter.

Butter a 4×8 inch loaf pan. Line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper, butter the parchment paper too. Pour the batter in the pan. Bake for 1 hour. Cool on a rack. Remove from pan and slice to serve.

Note: lining the bottom of the pan with parchment paper ensures that the bottom of the bread will not get stuck.
