Banana Walnut Bread

This recipe has been in my "Favorites" file for many years. This is a great use for too-ripe bananas.

Banana Walnut Bread

2 cups all-purpose baking mix, like Bisquick
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
6 tbsp salted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup milk
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 medium, ripe bananas, peeled and mashed
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Heat oven to 350 degrees. In bowl with electric mixer on medium speed, beat first 7 ingredients for 2 minutes. Add bananas and nuts; pour into greased and floured 9"x5" loaf pan. Bake 50 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean. Let cool in pans 5 minutes and then remove to a wire rack to finish cooling.
