March 17, 2008



4 3/4 cup flour 
Bread Dough Enhancer (Optional but recommended. Use per manufacturer’ s instructions, I need about 1 tsp)
3/4 cup sugar (adjust the amount to your liking)
1 tsp Salt
2 pkgs instant yeast
1/3 cup evaporated milk
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup butter
2 eggs, room temperature
1 cup mashed banana
1/2 cup chopped haselnuts (or any other nuts you want)
2 tsp cinnamon powder
2 tbsp butter, melted


Mix together 1 1/4 cups flour, 1/2 cup sugar, salt and  yeast.

Heat evaporated milk, water, and butter to lukewarm.

Add to dry ingredients; beat 2 minutes at medium speed of mixer.

Add eggs, banana, and 1 cup flour; beat at high speed for about 2 minutes.

Stir in haselnuts and enough remaining flour to make stiff dough.

Knead 8 to 10 minutes. Set in greased bowl; grease top.

Cover; let rise until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch dough down.

Divide in half; shape into loaves. Place in 2 greased 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 x 2 1/2 inch loaf pans or you can use bundt form then it will look like mine 🙂

 Cover; let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.

Mix remaining sugar and cinnamon.

Brush loaves with melted butter; top with sugar mixture.

Bake at 375F 25 to 35 minutes.
