Most Amazing Banana Bread Recipe

When I was little and my mom and dad would take me to the Farmer's Market, one thing we would often get was banana bread. Oh gosh, that banana bread was so so good! Soft, moist, delicious, amazing yumminess. That's the best way to describe that banana bread.

Well, I got back from Girls' Camp on Friday and we had 15 leftover bananas, and my husband had the great idea to make some banana bread. And it turned out amazing. So, here's the recipe I used. {original found here}

Best Banana Bread

  • Ingredients:

  • 1/2 c of butter, softened
  • 3/4 c of brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/3 c of mashed overripe bananas (I used 4)
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 2 c of flour {I used whole wheat and it turned out great}
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1/4 t nutmeg

1. Preheat oven to 350. Cream butter and brown sugar {this may take a little while, don't stop when they are blended. You want it to be a light shade of brown}. 
2. Add the eggs, bananas, and vanilla to your sugar mixture and mix together. In a separate bowl, combine all dry ingredients {flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg}. 
3. Add your dry ingredient combination to your banana mixture and stir until it combines. It should be thicker, but still slightly soupy {very very slightly}.
4. Coat a 9x5 bread pan with cooking spray and pour mixture in. Bake for 55-60 minutes or until knife comes out clean {when you insert it into the middle that is}. Take out of oven and eat with lots of butter. Mmm, so yummy.

Note: If you do not have a bread pan, try using a muffin tin and bake for only 40 minutes.

Try it, you won't regret it!
