I found this recipe in a recipe review on epicurious and it is indeed delicious. In fact, I will never have to search for banana bread recipes again... and you don't either.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 14 cups flour (I substituted 1/4 cup with whole wheat flour)
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup crushed walnuts (I actualy forgot to add them and loved the recipe even without the nuts)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Cream butter and sugar.
  3. Add bananas and eggs, beat well.
  4. Mix flour, salt and baking soda in separate bowl.
  5. Add to banana mixture.

Great simple recipe! For one batch, I added a box of instant vanilla pudding, chocolate chips and walnuts; the other batch just chocolate chips and walnuts. Both were SO good! Thank you for posting this! I never need another banana bread recipe again!
