  4. Mix in the mashed bananas. With mixer on low speed incorporate the flour mixture. Stir in walnuts.

  5. Lightly grease a 13 x 4 inch (35 X 12 cm) loaf pan. Line the bottom with parchment paper. (9 X 5 inch - 23X 13 cm loaf pan would be good too.

  6. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and sprinkle chopped walnuts on top. Bake for about 50-60 minutes until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, and then invert onto a wire rack.
