Classic Banana Bread
Simple, classic, and oh so perfect! We like to serve our banana bread in thick slices, slightly warm, with a pat of salted butter.
Servings 10 servings
- 2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup butter
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 medium over-ripe bananas mashed
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla until combined. Mix in the bananas.
Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir until just combined.
Bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cool in the pan for 10 minutes and then move to a wire rack to finish cooling.
Bananas should be very ripe for the best banana bread.
You can mix in up to a cup of chopped walnuts or chocolate chips, if desired.
Store banana bread, tightly covered, on the counter for 3-4 days.
