Classic Banana Bread

Banana Bread was the first thing that I baked when I was learning my way around the kitchen. It wasn’t something that my parents ever made during my childhood. So, this concept of using bananas that were completely black to make a delectable, sweet baked bread was completely foreign to me. However, this is my all-time favorite thing to bake now and believe it or not, it's the sole reason why I ever buy bananas from the market. This recipe has been tested and tweaked for three continuous years and I can honestly say that its the best banana bread that I’ve ever had.

Serves: 8

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 60 minutes


3-4 ripe bananas

¾ cups cane sugar

¼ cup brown sugar

2 eggs

2 tablespoons vanilla extract

¾ cups melted butter

2 cups all-purpose flour

½ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, use a fork to mash the bananas and sugar together. Whisk in the eggs, vanilla extract, and butter.

  3. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, salt, baking soda, and ground cinnamon. Slowly stir in the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, until well combined.

  4. Coat a standard-size loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray.

  5. Spoon in the batter into the loaf pan. Bake for 60- 65 minutes.

  6. Once finished baking, remove from the pan and cool for 15 minutes.

  7. Using a serrated knife, slice into even pieces.

Serve and enjoy,

Xo, Will
