Our family loves bananas, we always have a supply on hand. Even when you eat them everyday, you can still get a couple that ripen too quickly and are better for baking than for eating alone. We have previously shared a couple of banana recipes: Banana Oatmeal Muffins and Banana Chocolate Chip Scones.
Today’s banana recipe is for the very best banana bread. We have tried lots of banana bread recipes and this is the only one that we can all agree tastes delicious. It is the same one our mom baked for us when we were little kids!
The most important ingredient in banana bread is of course B-A-N-A-N-A-S. Make sure to mash them up well, you don’t want too big of chunks in your bread.
The dry ingredients, flour and baking soda.
Softened butter and glorious granulated sugar.
The butter and sugar creamed together.
Add in the eggs and vanilla.
The liquid mixture is now complete.
Carefully add in the dry ingredients.
Mix until incorporated.
Now it’s time for the bananas.
Take your time mixing in the bananas, at first it will be a little difficult but in the end, you have banana pieces all throughout.
Pour the batter into a buttered loaf pan.
Bake until a toothpick comes out clean.
Slice and enjoy!
