The Best Darn Banana Bread

Ok, so I admit it... I am usually a box mix kind of girl.
It is convenient, doesn't go bad, and super simple.
However, this recipe is just as easy... no weird ingredients and very very tasty!
The best part is that is uses that couple of bananas that got pushed to the side because they were browning!

Here it is, enjoy, and let me know what you think!


  • 4 or 5 ripe bananas, smashed
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1 cup sugar (can easily reduce to 3/4 cup)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • Pinch of cinnamon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour

How to:

No need for a mixer for this recipe. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). With a wooden spoon, mix butter into the mashed bananas in a large mixing bowl. Mix in the sugar, egg, and vanilla. Sprinkle the baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix in. Add the flour, nutmeg, and cinnamon sugar last, mix. Pour mixture into a buttered 4x8 inch loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour. Cool on a rack. Remove from pan and slice to serve.

This is extra yummy when served warm with butter on top! Soooo yummy!
