Classic Banana Bread


Classic Banana Bread


  • 2 to 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan.
  2. Mix Wet Ingredients:
    • In a mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas with a fork or potato masher until smooth.
    • Stir in the melted butter, granulated sugar, beaten egg, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  3. Add Dry Ingredients:
    • Sprinkle the baking soda and salt over the banana mixture and stir to combine.
    • Gradually add the flour, stirring until just incorporated. Be careful not to overmix.
  4. Bake:
    • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and smooth the top with a spatula.
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
    • If the top of the loaf starts to brown too quickly, you can tent it loosely with aluminum foil halfway through baking.
  5. Cool and Serve:
    • Allow the banana bread to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.
    • Once cooled, slice and serve. Enjoy your moist and delicious classic banana bread!
