Banana Bread

Posted by terrepruitt on July 11, 2018

The other day we had bananas WAY past their ripe stage, and recently whenever that happened I said I would make banana bread, but I have not.  This time I was determined to.  I went looking for my banana bread recipe and I found I did not have it, the one I talked about in my Blender Banana Bread post.  I thought I had it bookmarked but could not find it there either.  So I had to make it from memory with a little help from the internet.  I am not sure I have it right.  It is tasty, but I might need to do a little experimentation.

Here is what I did.

3 ripe bananas
1/2 cup butter (one cube)
2 eggs
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat the oven to 350° F.

Peel the bananas, putting the peeled bananas in a bowl.  Smash the bananas with a fork.  Cream the butter, sugar, and eggs together.  Add the vanilla.  Sift the flour, salt, and baking soda together.  Mix the flour mixture into the creamed mixture a little at a time.

Grease a loaf pan.  Pour the mixture into the loaf pan and bake for 55 minutes.  Check the loaf to see if it is ready.  Ovens vary so you might need to bake it longer.


I like walnuts in my banana bread, but my husband does not so much, so I didn’t put them in this time, but next time I will.  And one of these days, I’ll put chocolate chips in there.

How do you make banana bread?
