About Banana Bread

I know quite a few of you already have my super easy and super delicious recipe for banana bread, so for those of you who don't, SUCKS TO BE YOU, SUCKERS.

Just kidding.

Here you go, suckers.
  • 3-4 very ripe bananas, peeled
  • 1/3 c melted butter
  • 1 c sugar
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • pinch salt
  • 1 1/2 c flour
Preheat your oven to 350 F.

Mash up the bananas in a large bowl with a fork.

(When I was in Belize I rode a horse named Banana. This was Banana:

Clearly not the same thing.)

Stir in the melted butter.

Stir in the sugar.

Stir in the egg, lightly beaten.

Stir in the vanilla.

Stir in the baking soda (and fine, the pinch of salt, too).

Stir in the flour...

...Until just combined.

Pour into a loaf pan sprayed with cooking spray.

And bake for one to one-and-a-half hours, until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the loaf comes out clean.

Let it cool for a while on a wire rack and then slice into perfectly even slices.

i had too many bananas

Or just cram it into your gaping maw by the fistful. Whatever floats your boat, suckers.


  1. Mmmmmm... banana bread! Looks amazing!! I'll have to try this version -- mine always comes out looking brown, even in the center. It's delicious, but I like the yellowy color of yours better. Mine calls for buttermilk... I wonder if that's maybe the reason? **shrugs**

  2. you know what, i bet it is. chemical reaction to the baking soda.

  3. Ooh! Ooh! I have this recipe! Only you told me to add rum to mine because obviously you love me more than everyone else SUCK ON THAT, SUCKERS!

  4. I'll take the gaping maw for $500, Alex.

    (sucK it, TREBEK)

  5. Carter & I just made this. It's in the oven AS I TYPE!! I'm so excited!

  6. SQUEE!!! Let me know how it comes out!
