Ingredients You Need

This delicious recipe calls for half a cup of softened butter, one cup of granulated sugar, two eggs beaten, three bananas finely crushed, one and a half cups of all-purpose flour, one teaspoon of baking soda, and half a teaspoon of salt.

If you want to add some flavor, you can also add ½ a teaspoon of vanilla extract! And for a more moist bread, add a fourth banana.

How to Make Banana Bread

Food starts off the instructions section in a very relatable way, first remove all pots and pans from your oven. Then preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Start on your batter by creaming the sugar and butter together and then adding the eggs and bananas, making sure to combine well. Sift your dry ingredients together and add to the banana mixture. If you are using vanilla, add it at this stage too. Mix together until just combined and pour into a greased and floured loaf pan. Bake for 55 minutes!

Possible Modifications

You, of course, can make modifications to the recipe. While regular banana bread is scrumptious, creamy peanut butter chocolate banana bread is decadent! Simply substitute the butter for half a cup of creamy peanut butter and omit the salt. You will then sift two tablespoons of cacao powder with the dry ingredients.

If you are wanting a slightly more healthy banana bread, then incorporate a fourth cup of applesauce and a fourth cup of butter, three fourths cup of sugar, four or five bananas, and a dash of cinnamon!
