Betty White’s Banana Bread Is As Nutty As Her Characters

Betty White’s Banana Bread

Did you know that Betty White loves sweets and junk food?  Now you can enjoy one of her favorite indulgences with Betty White’s Banana Bread recipe!

She’s a Guinness record holder, as the female with the longest TV career on record.  She is the oldest person to receive an Emmy nomination.  She is the oldest person to ever host Saturday Night Live.  Betty White’s career has been legendary and she is still going!  Along the way, she loaned her persona to Fisher’s Blend Flour and they published her favorite banana bread recipe in their advertisements and packaging.  Hey, My Mom Used To Make That brings us the recipe and Betty’s adorable face is right there on the ad.



Banana bread is timeless and this recipe looks to be a good, no-fail, classic version, with lots of walnuts.  However, since we can’t seem to find Fisher’s Blend Flour in stores, a strong wheat flour should do as a good substitute.  This bread looks sure to please every time…just like the Golden Girl!


Here are the ingredients for Betty White’s Banana Bread

  • 2 cups strong wheat flour, sifted
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
