How to Make the Best (Yes, the Best) Banana Bread!

This really is the best banana bread recipe I've ever made. And it's super easy!

You'll need:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 5-6 overripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup chopped nuts

Here's how you make it:

  1. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl. 
  2. Combine the rest of the ingredients in another bowl. 
  3. Mix together.
  4. Pour into two greased and floured loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees F about 30 minutes.

Now I'll share a couple secrets:

  • I like to slightly under bake my bread. Just where it's a tiny bit moist in the center on the top. 
  • Before it's completely cool, I cover with plastic wrap. This makes the top of the bread ooey gooey and super moist.
