Banana Bread

Anyone else bored at home and started baking more?! Because I sure have. Maybe its new mom life, maternity leave, quarentine, or a combo of it all. But whatever it is, Martha Stewart would be proud of my skills ;)

Alright, here is my recipe for my favorite banana bread. Feel free to substitue the ingredients for what fits your lifestyle, mine may not be the healthiest for some:


  • 1 Cup of Granulated Sugar
  • 2 Cups of All Purporse Flour
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) Butter
  • 4 Ripe Bananas
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon 
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • Optional: 1 cup of chopped nuts or chocolate chips 
Prep Time:  15 min
Cook time:  50 min 
Total Time:  1 hour 5 min

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease pan with butter and set aside.
  2. In a bowl, heat butter until its melted (I put it in the microwave).
  3. Either in the same bowl or in a mixer, add the bananas and mash.
  4. Add in the vanilla extract and eggs to the same bowl, stir until no yellow streaks of egg remain. 
  5. In a seperate bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. 
  6. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingrediets and mix together. I do this in a mixer, I slowly add the dry ingredients so that I dont get clumps. You can also do it by hand and a spatula. 
  7. Pour the batter into prepared load pan and bake for 45-55 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean. 
  8. Enjoy!
