I will admit it, I’m terrible at eating bananas before they brown. They sit in my fruit bowl, perfectly ripe, yellow and… forgotten. Instead of throwing out mushy bananas or tossing them into the compost, I learned how to make the perfect banana bread.
I have followed different recipes every time I made banana bread and finally came to a few different conclusions of how to perfect this delicious and for-the-most-part healthy meal. The first is that I always add one extra banana. I find this makes the bread more flavorful as well as more tender and moist. The second is that brown sugar adds a richer flavor. If you do not have or like brown sugar, then feel free to substitute white sugar. The third thing I have learned is that you do not need to go out and buy a bread loaf pan. An 8-inch round will work or an 8x5 pan. Of course, bake times will vary but it truly does not matter.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my friends and family do!
What you'll need:
2 cups flour
1 tsp of baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup brown sugar
4-5 ripe bananas
1 stick of melted butter
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Combine flour, baking soda and salt in one bowl and mix. In second bowl mash bananas, add melted butter, cinnamon and brown sugar. Mix until creamy. Beat eggs in separate bowl and then add to banana mixture and stir together. Once you've got your banana mixture ready, grab your rubber spatula and gradually add it to your dry ingredient bowl. Stir together until batter is smooth.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour your 8 ½- inch-by 4 ½ - inch loaf pan. Pour batter into the pan and smooth on top. Bake 55-75 Minutes or until fully baked. You can use the old knife method to check! Insert knife into center of bread and if it comes out clean then your loaf is done! This relatively healthy treat will have your friends and family begging for your recipe!
