Banana Bread Recipe

October 18, 2017

Hello friends and Happy Fall.  

I love baking all kinds of breads during the fall and winter months.  

Today I have an easy recipe to make Banana Bread.

This recipe does not have any walnuts in it, but you can add them or anything else extra that you might like.  

When I baked this bread, I used one half cup of whole wheat flour, but if you only have regular flour that is fine to use too.

Yield: makes one loaf

This is an easy and delicious banana bread recipe.


  • 2 to 3 ripe bananans, peeled

  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1 large egg, beaten

  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and butter a 4x8 inch loaf pan.
  2. In a mixing bowl, mash ripe bananas with a fork until completely smooth. Stir the melted butter into the mashed bananas.
  3. Mix in the baking soda and salt. Stir in sugar, beaten egg, and vanilla extract. Mix in the flour.
  4. Pour the batter into your prepared loaf pan. Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour at 350 degrees F, or until tester inserted into the center comes out clean.
  5. Remove from oven and let cool in the pan for a few minutes. Then remove the banana bread from the pan and let cool completely before serving.

  8. Sounds yummy. Great minds think alike because I made some very easy banana cookies yesterday. They are so filling that we are managing to eat just one or two per day. Shop-bought cakes and biscuits can't really compete with home baking.
