Soft, moist and delicious. This banana bread is the perfect the snack to make when your bananas go bad.
I was sent this recipe from a Tik Tok video so I don't have anywhere to link this recipe to.
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp kosher salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter (softened)
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
3-6 bananas (I only used 4)
Lets Get Started
Preheat your oven to 350° and spray your 9"x 5"loaf pan. To get the intricate design I used a seasonal loaf pan that I got in a Williams Sonoma baking class. I could not find a link to this exact pan, but here is the regular Gold Touch Loaf Pan.
1. With a standing mixer and the paddle attachment, mix brown sugar and softened butter on medium speed until light and fluffy. About 2 minutes.
2. Once your butter mixture is ready, add the two eggs and vanilla extract mix until combined.
3. Add bananas and mix until combined. The recipe calls for 3-6 ripe banana.
Use as many as you would like. I only used 4 bananas as I felt like my batter was big enough and adding more bananas, I wouldn't be able to fit it all in my pan.
4. On low speed, slowly add the flour and baking soda and mix until combined.
Before adding the flour and baking soda, in a medium bowl I whisked together the flour and baking soda in order to fully combine.
5. Cook for 45 min to 1 hr.
I cooked for 40 minutes. I always want to set the timer 5 minutes before the first time increment and then continue to cook and check at 5 minute increments until a toothpick comes out clean.
Want to add to your banana bread? Although this is a classic banana bread, there are lots of additions you can add. Here are some suggestions to take your bread to the next level.
1/2 to 3/4 cup chocolate chips
3/4 to 1 cup chopped walnuts
3/4 to 1 cup small dried fruits (raisins, cranberries, blueberries, apricot, etc)
Powdered sugar sifted on top for a sprinkle
You can really add as much of these additions as you would like. Depends on how much you want in your bread!
