Everybody should have a solid, go-to recipe for a favorite loaf of fresh and delicious bread— and what could be better than banana bread?! We couldn’t think of any, so we had to find the best Banana Bread recipe we could and share it with you. The result is moist, delicious, and oh-so-easy.
So what makes this recipe so easy? You don’t need a special mixer, a dough hook, or anything fancy. Instead, just grab two bowls, a spatula or spoon, your ingredients and a loaf pan to bake it all in, and you’ll have a fresh loaf of Banana Bread in a little over an hour.
When picking out bananas for your banana bread, make sure to get really ripe ones (or least let the ones you already have ripen fully). Why? Really ripe bananas are key for the full delicious flavor of the bread and for its utterly tempting speckled appearance.
For extra flavor and a truly beautiful, deep golden-brown crust, add a little extra butter to the plate. Just spread a pat over the bread while it’s still warm from the oven, and let it soak in and melt all over the top.
This recipe is one of those solid, basic ones every baker should have in her repertoire, so once you’ve got it down, play around with it to make it your own and achieve YOUR perfect banana bread flavor. Will you add more sugar, or take a bit out? Add another banana to the mix, or make due with only two? The choice is up to you.
