    Ingredients:

    Serves: 9-12

    Yield:

    loaf

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Adjust oven rack to lower middle position and heat oven to 350 degrees.
    2. 2
      Grease bottom only of regular loaf pan, or grease and flour bottom and sides of nonstick 9-by-5-by-3-inch loaf pan; set aside.
    3. 3
      Combine first five ingredients together in large bowl; set aside.
    4. 4
      Mix mashed bananas, yogurt, eggs, butter, and vanilla with wooden spoon in medium bowl.
    5. 5
      Lightly fold banana mixture into dry ingredients with rubber spatula until just combined and batter looks thick and chunky.
    6. 6
      Scrape batter into prepared loaf pan; bake until loaf is golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 55 minutes.
    7. 7
      Cool in pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire rack.
    8. 8
      Serve warm or at room temperature.
    9. 9
      Greasing and flouring only the bottom of a regular loaf pan causes the bread to cling to the sides and rise higher.
    10. 10
      If using a nonstick loaf pan, on which the sides are very slick, grease and flour sides as well as the bottom.

      Super moist and great banana taste. Sometimes I use a little applesauce to cut down on the fat content. My kids love this bread.

      I agree that this is the best banana bread recipe. It's totally worth it to toast the walnuts, or sometimes I use pecans.

      Excellent! Not too sweet and very moist. This is my standard Banana Bread recipe. I got it from the America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook - my favorite cookbook!
