This picture was taken 2 days after I made the bread and it's sat in the fridge...so it got a bit shiny.
This is the best banana bread recipe I can find. I tried a bunch before adopting this one as my favorite. It is moist, sweet, and just the right texture. Plus, it has lots of banana flavor! One of the most important things is to use very ripe bananas. Over-ripe. You want as much sweet banana flavor as possible.
1 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup white sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
3 very ripe bananas, mashed
1. Grease and flour two loaf pans. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a bowl, whisk flour, soda, salt, and sugar. Mix in beaten eggs, melted butter and mashed bananas.
3. Pour into prepared pans. Bake for one our or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
I like to add 1 tsp vanilla and 1 tsp cinnamon, but that can be done to your liking. Have some fun with this recipe - make muffins, mini loafs, or pour it all in one loaf pan and make a big moist loaf of banana bread. I always double this as my family will eat one batch in a day and I like to make it last at least 2.
