When I first started this blog, I wrote up a post about delicious banana bread. Today I wanted to update the post so I could share it with my new followers, & because I had over ripe bananas just calling my name. I have been making banana bread for a couple of years now, trying out new recipes and even some together. I came up with my perfect banana bread recipe, about a year ago, and make it almost every time I have ripe bananas kicking around. I’ve also finally got to the point where I don’t need to look at the recipe when making it, which definitely means it’s a win! Funny fact, I used to hate bananas once upon a time! I loved the taste of bananas, but hated the soft texture, which is ironic, because with this recipe you don’t want to over mash the bananas. Other than the main ingredient, I’m sure you have most of the other supplies in your baking cupboard. This “bread” is more like a soft cake, which is a treat in itself! Right out of the oven or cold, it’s so tasty, you must give this recipe a try! I’d love to know if you have a favourite go-to banana bread recipe? Or if you prefer a more cake to bread texture, comment below!
Prep time: 15 mins – Bake time: 50 – 55 mins – Makes: 8 Slices
- 2 Ripe Bananas
- 1 1/2 cup of All Purpose Flour
- 2 Eggs
- 1/2 tsp of Vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup of Melted Butter
- 1 tsp Baking Soda
- 1/2 cup of Sugar
- Baking Spray
- White Chocolate Chips (optional)
Lets get started
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and lightly spray your pan with a baking spray or use butter to grease.
- Mash the bananas with a fork (or a potato masher), if they are over ripe they will be pretty easy to mash with a fork.
- Add the melted butter to the mashed bananas, and combine together, no need to over stir.
- In another bowl add the flour and baking soda together, gently whisk and set aside.
- Crack two eggs into the banana butter mixture, and then add the sugar and vanilla extract.
- Slowly combine the wet ingredients to the dry, and fold into each other.
- Add as many chocolate chips as you want. This step is optional, you could also add nuts if you like.
- Pour the mix into the greased pan, and put it into the oven for 50-55 mins.
- Once it’s done let it cool, slice it up and enjoy!
As I said before, make sure you don’t over mash your bananas, you want them to have a chunky texture, because then it comes out as more of a cake than bread.
