Banana Banana Bread

This is the best and easiest banana bread recipe that I have found and I hope those of you that try it enjoy it as much as my family has.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 1/3 cups mashed banana's
3 tbsp brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350 F
Lightly grease a 9x5 loaf pan with cooking spray, or butter.
In a large bowl combine flour, baking soda, and salt.
In a separate bowl, cream together butter and ½ cup of brown sugar until smooth.
Beat eggs in separate bowl then stir into sugar mixture and then add the mashed bananas to this just until blended.
Stir banana mixture into flour mixture just until moistened, over mixing will make your bread harder.
Pour the batter into prepared loaf pan and sprinkle top with 3 tbsp brown sugar.
Bake in preheated oven, in the middle of your oven for 60 to 65 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean from the center of the loaf.
Let bread cool on wire rack for ten minutes then turn out onto the wire rack to cool completely.
 
This can also be made into muffins. Bake muffins at 325F for 25 minutes.

Note: You can also add other things to this bread such as nuts, chocolate chips, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, all-spice, pretty much any combination you like.
I've added vanilla and cinnamon to the egg mixture before adding to the flour mixture and I've also added chocolate chips to the mixture before baking. Every way I have tried this recipe it's has bin great.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />



Tip:


If you don’t have enough ripe bananas on hand freeze what you do have until you do have enough to make 2 1/3 cups of bananas. When you are ready to make your bread remove from freezer and thaw for about an hour before you are ready to start.


 


I hope you all enjoy this banana bread as much as we have.

I love banana bread, my grandmother used to make it fresh in the morning when we would have sleep overs at her house. It'll probably be one of my favourite treats forever.

Great tip about freezing bananas, it's the perfect time to stock up now since they're in season and pretty cheap.

always wanted to make it on Mar 07, 2011 @ 11:21 am

I love cooking, but I'm not much of a baker. I always wanted to try making banana bread (it's one of my fav treats), but was always afraid I would mess up a recipe horribly. This one looks really yummy, and easy to make. I may have to try it-- I would probably try pecans in there too!

Go for it, it's so easy you won't believe it. I've made a few kind of banana bread and this was the easiest and best I've found so far.

@dolce - that's interesting that you would say that. I always thought that baking was easier. You follow a specific set of instructions, whereas cooking it's more about experimenting and testing flavours. I've had quite a few cooking experiments go bad, but baking does't seem to cause me as many issues.

Add some chocolate chips and it will be even better. Speaking of which, I'm presently eating a slice of chocolate chip banana loaf from Timothy's and it is sooooo good!
