Simply Recipes – Banana Bread Recipe

This classicBanana Bread Recipe has been a staple on Simply Recipes for years, and for good reason: it’s delicious. It’s easy to make and keeps well in the freezer for a quick breakfast or snack.

To get the most flavor from the bananas, you should use overly-ripe ones. This means they’ll be sweet and have more natural flavor. To speed up the process of ripening, you can place them in the oven, but be careful as this can burn or overcook them.

Delicious Homemade Banana Bread Recipe

The best way to tell when the banana bread is done is when a toothpick or cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean. It should also be a golden brown in color, with the inside moist and tender. If your banana bread is taking too long to bake, you can tent it with a piece of foil and lower the temperature in your oven by about 25 °F.

To make the batter, cream the butter and sugar together using a hand mixer or stand mixer. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing after each addition. Stir in the mashed bananas, lemon juice and vanilla extract. Add the dry ingredients, blending well. Finally, fold in the nuts if you are adding them. Pour into a greased and floured 9-by-5-inch loaf pan and bake for about an hour or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick or cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool in the pan before removing and finishing cooling on a wire rack.
