Classic Banana Bread Recipe: Easy and Delicious

Arrow

Gather Your Ingredients

Ensure you have all necessary ingredients: ripe bananas, flour, sugar, eggs, butter, baking soda, and a pinch of salt.

Preheat Your Oven

Set your oven to 350°F (175°C) to warm up while you prepare the batter.

Mash the Bananas

Use a fork or potato masher to mash 3-4 ripe bananas until smooth. The riper the bananas, the sweeter your bread will be.

Mix the Wet Ingredients

In a bowl, combine the mashed bananas with melted butter. Add two beaten eggs and mix well.

Combine the Dry Ingredients

In a separate bowl, whisk together 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, and a pinch of salt.

Blend Wet and Dry Mixtures

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the banana mixture. Stir until just combined to avoid overmixing.

Add Sweetness

Stir in 3/4 cup of sugar. Adjust according to your preference for sweetness.

Optional Add-ins

For added flavor, consider folding in a cup of chopped nuts or chocolate chips.

Pour the Batter

Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan, spreading it evenly.
