A delicious tea bread made with tea! Nothing says cozy more than this tea and the aroma of baking sweet breads. This bread is lovely and even lovelier when enjoyed with a cup of Simpson & Vail’s Cozy Comfort tea 🙂
Banana Nut Bread with Cozy Comfort Tea
1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup (4 oz) Cozy Comfort tea butter*
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/3 cup honey
1 1/4 cup mashed ripe bananas (3-4 medium)1 cup walnuts, chopped
*Cozy Comfort Tea Butter
5 oz butter
2 tsp Cozy Comfort tea
Melt the butter in a saucepan on the stove over medium heat. Add the Cozy Comfort tea and let steep for 10 minutes. Strain out the tea and measure the tea butter to make sure there is 4oz. Chill until slightly solid.
Grease and flour a 9x5x3″ loaf pan (I used small mini loaf pans). Preheat the oven to 350.
In a mixing bowl beat the butter and brown sugar until combined then add the eggs. When blended, add in the honey and mix.
In a separate bowl combine the flours, powder, soda and salt.
Alternate the mashed banana and flour mixture into the egg/sugar/butter mixture. Stir the walnuts in to the batter and pour into the prepared pan.
Bake for 45 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
