Warm, sweet, hearty banana bread. Simple to make, wonderful to eat. My brother's recipe. Preparation tips: 1) Make sure that the bananas are slightly over-ripe. Just leave them out for about 4-5 days after buying them from the store. 2) After you've added all the dry ingredients to the mixing bowl, make a small "crater" in the mix before adding the liquid ingredients and banana slices; this makes mixing a little easier.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add all other ingredients (slicing the bananas into the bowl).
  3. Mix together. (Can use an electric mixer or simply whisk ingredients together until banana slices are reduced to small bits).
  4. Pour mix into bread pan.
  5. Bake at 350-400 degrees Fahrenheit for 1 hour.

OHMYGOODNESS! This recipe is amazing! I followed it exactly, using bananas I'd frozen after becoming overly ripe. Oh, and we made muffins rather than a loaf (baked about 18 minutes). They were delicious! Incredibly moist and flavorful. The whole family loved them!!

Made this for my co-workers and recieved great reviews. Thanks for sharing. I followed the recipe as is, however the next time I will add more spices and make it in mimi loaf pans. Also, i may divide into 2 loaves because it seemed like it was too much for one bread and took longer to cook.
