Delicious Banana Bread!

There are two really good reasons to make banana bread. One, because it can be eaten all day long since it’s not a dessert. It’s delicious for breakfast! And two, because it’s a way to utilize those overly ripe, mushy bananas!

This recipe is so easy to make and many of the ingredients are ones that most people already have in their kitchens. The bake time is a little longer than other pastries but the prep time is very minimal. It’s especially a great beginner recipe for first-time bakers!


4 ripe bananas, smashed

1/3 cup of melted butter

1 cup of brown sugar

1 egg, beaten

1 teaspoon of vanilla

1 teaspoon of baking soda

a pinch of salt

1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour


1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees farenheit.

2) Mix the butter into the smashed bananas in a large mixing bowl.

3) Then, mix in the brown sugar, egg, and vanilla.


4) Sprinkle the salt and baking soda over the mixture and mix it in.

5) Finally, add in the flour and mix it completely.

6) Pour the mixture into an 8×4 loaf pan and bake for 1 hour. A fork should come out pretty clean when stuck in.


The loaf came out delicious and moist! Let cool for a little bit before serving. The loaf stayed moist for up to 3 days. Unfortunately, I can’t say if it would stay moist past then because it was such a hit, that it was gone by the third day! But from the way it tasted on the 3rd day, I imagine it would’ve kept well for a week.


Another great idea is to add other ingredients to the mixture. Chocolate chips are delicious and so is peanut butter. Many different ingredients can be added to create banana bread variations.

This recipe is so simple so if you have some ripe old bananas lying around in your kitchen, don’t waste them and make some banana bread!
