Easy Banana Bread

If you are anything like us, from time to time we end up with a few overripe bananas.  What do you do with overripe bananas? Make banana bread, of course! A friend of mine recently shared her easy banana bread recipe with me so of course I had to give it a shot.  The smell of this bread baking will torture you while it’s in the oven. It smells so good.. and tastes even better! Yummy!

Easy Banana Bread

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 1/3 cups mashed overripe bananas

Preheat oven to 350 and lightly grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan.
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt.

In a separate bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar. Stir in eggs and mashed bananas until well blended.

Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.

Bake in preheated oven for 60 to 65 minutes (it was about 50 minutes in my oven),  or until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean.
Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.

I’m not a fan of nutty banana bread, but if you are, you could also add some walnuts! This banana bread is easy and yummy – just the way I like my recipes to be!

  1. I made banana bread the other day, and we went through it way too fast. So more will just have to be made this weekend. But I wish I had a red loafpan like yours to make it in — I’m quite sure that would make it taste even better. Where did you get it? And your bread looks very delicious by the way.
