Banana Bread

Hey y'all! How is everyone doing during this pandemic? It's totally crazy, right?? I know, I haven't been here in awhile. But, a lot of personal things have happened in my life and I kind of lost my passion. However, I'm back and ready to give you the best content I possibly can.


Today we are going to talk about banana bread. Everybody in this quarantine have been baking there take on banana bread. I think a lot of people are baking and cooking during isolation and I can't say that I blame them. I've been cooking and baking a lot as well.


Here is my take on banana bread. I had to follow the trend. I had to. This is the recipe that I've always used when I want to make banana bread. I hope you enjoy this recipe!!


What You Will Need

  • 3 ripe bananas. mashed

  • 1 cup of sugar

  • 1 egg, if you want to substitute the egg, just simply don't add it

  • 1/4 cup of melted butter

  • 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flower

  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon of salt

*note: to make this recipe vegan, don't add the egg and replace the butter with any oil you have on hand be sure to add in 1/3 cup of organic sugar, 1/3 cup of organic brown sugar, 1/3 cup of oil, 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract and 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon.*


And that's it! First thing to do is preheat your oven to 325 degrees and grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan. This is important because if you don't grease the pan, the bottom of the bread will stick to the bottom. Yes, I am speaking from experience. It was tragic.


Next mash those bananas up in a large bowl. My favorite part of the recipe.

Once the bananas are mashed, add the sugar, egg, and butter. Mix it together until well combined.

Add the flour and baking soda to the mixture. Do not over mix the batter. When you don't see anymore specs of flour, stir the salt into the batter. Then add it to the prepared loaf pan.

Bake the banana bread in the oven until golden brown or when you stick a toothpick in the middle and it comes out clean, about 1 hour.

Whenever I bake banana bread, it smells heavenly in the kitchen. After an hour the banana bread it pretty much done! You do have to let it cool for 5 minutes. But, no one ever does this step, right? Okay, me too.


Take the bread out of the pan, cut and enjoy!
