Many people who have been in quarantine for multiple weeks find interesting ways to entertain themselves. Before most of America went on lockdown, we saw stories from other parts of the world, like how Italians were singing to each other across empty streets and how one man ran a marathon on his balcony.

Now, Americans with extra time on their hands are finding creative ways to keep busy. Sometimes they’re silly, but sometimes they’re actually really beneficial.

Take baking. The baking aisle at many grocery stores is pretty empty because many Americans have suddenly become home bakers. While we’ve personally always liked to bake, we’re also always excited to try new recipes, especially easy ones that use easy-to-find ingredients.

Whether you’re new to baking or practically a pro, banana bread is hard to mess up. As long as you have some ripe bananas, a few basic ingredients and a loaf pan, you’re good to go.

We love how versatile bananas are. The riper they get the sweeter they get, and the sweeter they get, the better they are for baking. Sometimes we buy extra bananas just so we can set them to the side and let them get extra ripe for baking.

Sarah Lynn Cauchon, also known as The Domestic Geek, loves to cook, but she doesn’t really consider herself a baker. Yet, after being on lockdown with her family for several weeks, she has found herself baking a lot more than usual. 

One of her favorite recipes is her grandmother’s Banana Bread recipe. It’s so easy to make that she actually made it for the first time when she was a little girl. If you’re looking for a fun activity you can do with your kids, making this recipe together is a great idea.

Watch the video below to see just how easy it is to make.

Doesn’t that look amazing? Viewers are loving how simple it is. One comment reads, “I’ve always messed up banana bread but this looks like a recipe I can’t mess up! Looks good.” Another viewer wrote, “I have made your grandmas recipe 3 times in the last month and my family LOVES it. The banana bread is gone in less a day and everyone always wants more!”

You can find the full recipe here. The recipe is completely vegetarian and nut-free, unless you decide to mix in some chopped nuts. We might add some chocolate chips to make it taste more like dessert. What would you add (if anything)?
