Easy and Delicious Banana Bread Recipe

Today, we’re diving into a delightful and straightforward recipe that’s bound to become a household favorite – Banana Bread.

Follow along as we create a moist and flavorful loaf with simple ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups (300 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup (200 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (114 grams) salted butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons (7 grams) baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2 grams) salt
  • 1 teaspoon (5 grams) vanilla extract
  • 3 ripe large bananas
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon (1 gram) cinnamon
  • 1 cup (100 grams) walnuts (optional)

Let’s Get Started:

  1. Prepare the Bananas: Start by mashing three ripe, large bananas in a bowl. No need for an electric mixer; this recipe is wonderfully hands-on.
  2. Butter and Vanilla: Melt the salted butter and add it to the mashed banana mixture. Follow it up by incorporating pure vanilla extract for that extra kick.
  3. Eggs: Slightly scramble two large eggs and blend them into the mixture.
  4. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (177°C) while you work on the batter.
  5. Dry Ingredients: Add 2 cups of all-purpose flour and granulated sugar to the mix. Don’t forget the pinch of salt, baking soda, and a hint of cinnamon. Mix well.
  6. Optional Walnuts: For an extra layer of flavor and texture, toss in a cup of chopped walnuts (optional).
  7. Baking Pan Prep: Grease your baking pan. If using a glass pan, like I did, it ensures a perfect release.
  8. Top it Off: Sprinkle a few walnuts on top for that picture-perfect finish.
  9. Baking Time: Pop it in the oven for a total bake time of 50 minutes.
