Extra-ripe fruit makes for an extra-moist loaf. Ripen bananas on the countertop for about four days before preparing this quick bread recipe.
1. Heat oven to 350 degrees . Coat two 8-1/2 x 4-1/2 x 2-5/8-inch loaf pans with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
2. In large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Make a well in the center (step A, below). Mash bananas in medium-size bowl (step B). Add eggs, sugar and butter and beat until fairly smooth (step C).
3. Pour banana mixture into well in dry ingredients and stir just until blended. Fold in walnuts, then divide batter evenly between prepared loaf pans.
4. Bake loaves at 350 degrees for 35 minutes, until browned and tops spring back lightly when gently pressed. Remove to wire rack to cool, dust with confectioners sugar, if desired, and serve.
