Easy Banana Bread Recipe


    • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
    • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)


    Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).

    Grease a 9×5-inch (23×13 cm) loaf pan.

    In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.

    Set aside.

    In a large mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas with a fork or potato masher.

    In a separate bowl, cream together the melted butter and sugar.

    Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

    Stir in the vanilla extract.

    Combine the wet and dry ingredients.

    Gradually add the flour mixture to the banana mixture, stirring until just combined.

    Be careful not to overmix.

    If you’re adding nuts, gently fold them into the batter.

    Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and spread it evenly.

    Bake in the preheated oven for about 60-70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

    Allow the banana bread to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes, then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.

    Slice and enjoy your homemade banana bread!

    Feel free to customize this recipe by adding chocolate chips, cinnamon, or other mix-ins to suit your taste preferences.
