My Favorite Baking Recipe

banana bread

This is one of the easiest and my favorite baking recipe. Banana Bread! I feel like I almost always have the ingredients for it, especially since I have a terrible knack of letting my bananas get over ripe. Typically, I freeze my bananas as soon as they get too ripe. That way I never waste bananas! This is also a super easy recipe, no mixer necessary, and super easy to clean up. You will only need a mixing bowl and a fork!

You’ll need:

  • 3 very ripe bananas.
  • 1/3 melted butter.
  • 1 cup of sugar.
  • 1 beaten egg.
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda.
  • 1 1/4 cups of flour.
  • A pinch of salt
  • Optional: 1 teaspoon of baking soda.
  • Optional: Walnuts (I hate having crunchy things in my bread so I usually don’t do this, sorry for no measurement).
I know, over ripe bananas never look appealing.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. If you plan on removing the bread from the pan to serve, I would suggest putting Pam on it. I usually end up keeping my bread in the pan and just cutting slices out of it.
  2. In a mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas with a fork until smooth. Stir the melted butter into the mashed bananas.
  3. Mix in the baking soda and salt. Stir in the sugar and beaten egg. Optionally, you can add in some vanilla extract here. I like it since it makes the banana bread a bit sweeter.
  4. Mix in the flour. Option: If you want to add the walnuts, add them here and fold them into the batter.
  5. Pour the batter into your prepared loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour 350°F or until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. Remove and let cool.
