3 ripe bananas, mashed (the riper the better!)

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

  • Directions:

    1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a loaf pan (9×5 inch is ideal).
    2. In a large bowl, mash the bananas until smooth. You can leave a few small chunks for texture, if desired.
    3. In a separate bowl, cream together the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
    4. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
    5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Don’t overmix!
    6. Fold in the chopped walnuts, if using.
    7. Pour the batter into your greased loaf pan and bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
    8. Let the bread cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    1. Can I use brown sugar instead of granulated sugar? Absolutely! You can substitute brown sugar for half (or all) of the granulated sugar for a richer flavor.
    2. What if I don’t have walnuts? No problem! You can leave them out entirely or substitute another chopped nut, like pecans or almonds. You could even add chocolate chips, dried fruit, or a sprinkle of streusel for a fun twist.
    3. My banana bread isn’t browning on top. What can I do? If your bread isn’t browning after the recommended baking time, try tenting a piece of foil over the top for the last 10-15 minutes of baking.
    4. How can I tell if my banana bread is done? The best way to check for doneness is to insert a toothpick into the center of the bread. If it comes out clean, your bread is good to go!
