DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO PREPARE HOMEMADE BANANA BREAD RECIPE

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a loaf pan with either cooking spray or butter or Line loaf pan with parchment paper, letting the excess hang over the long sides to form a sling. Spray the inside.

Peel the bananas and mash the ripe bananas with a fork or hand until completely smooth in a bowl. Leave the bananas as chunky or as smooth as you prefer.

Melt the butter in the microwave or over low heat on the stovetop. Add the melted butter to the banana mixture and stir.

Mix into the mixture sugar, beaten egg, milk and vanilla extract until incorporated.

Measure the flour, baking soda, and salt into the bowl.

Switch to using a spatula and gently stir fry ingredients into wet ingredients until the ingredients are just barely combined and no more dry flour is visible. Do not over mix

Fold in the nuts or chocolate, if using.

Pour the batter into your prepared loaf pan. Smooth the top of the batter.

Bake until the top of the cake is caramelized dark brown with some yellow interior peeking through and a toothpick or cake tester inserted into the middle comes out clean, 50 to 65 minutes

Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan for a few minutes before removing the banana bread to a wire rack to cool.

Slice the bread and serve with any toppings of choice

 

ADDITIONAL RECIPE TIPS

  1. You can use margarine or oil for the butter and almond milk, kefir, buttermilk.
  2. Letting your bananas ripen even longer until the skins are brown and the fruit falls apart when you peel it will make your bread even more strongly banana-flavored and richer
  3. If using nuts, toast them in the oven for 10 minutes as the oven is pre-heating.
