Eggless Banana Walnut Bread

This was my first attempt at making Banana Walnut bread, so I didn't have very high expectations from the end result.
But when I tasted the bread, it tasted awsome, ofcourse it didn't turn out as moist as it would have with eggs, but it was very soft and tasty:) Since I am a vegetarian, I am happy with this recipe and will be making this bread often.
Here is a recipe for Eggless Banana Walnut Bread. Use as ripe bananas as you can for this recipe, as the bananas will make your bread moist and soft.

3 Large Ripe Bananas
1-1/2 Cup Flour (Maida, or you can use 50-50 Wheat flour and Maida mixture)
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/4 Cup Pear or Peach, cut into pieces (You can use apple sauce instead)
1/4 Cup Warm Milk
1/2 Cup Walnut, Broken into Small Pieces
4 Tablespoon Unsalted Butter, at Room Temperature or Melted
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/4th Teaspoon Nutmeg Powder (Optional)
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Add the flour, sugar, salt and baking soda in a mixing bowl and mix well. In a separate bowl add the pear/peach pieces and microwave for a minute or untill soft and mushy. Mash into a thick pulp. Now add the bananas, milk and butter to this bowl and mash well. Mix the banana and peach/pear mixture with the flour mixture. Mix gently with hands to form a thick batter. Do not over mix. If the batter feels dry, add some more mashed bananas or warm milk. Once all the ingrdients are combined well, add the walnut pieces.
Butter a pan with non stick cooking spray and dust it with all purpose flour. Transfer the mixture into the pan, and bake for 40-45 minutes or until the bread is golden brown and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

Once cooked, let it cool completely. Remove from the pan, cut into slices and serve warm or cold.
