How to Make Banana Bread
Are you craving a warm and delicious slice of banana bread but don’t know how to make it? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!
Banana bread is a classic treat that’s perfect for breakfast, snack time, or even dessert. Not only is it delicious, but it’s also easy to make and only requires a few simple ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen.
To get started, you’ll need the following ingredients:
- 3-4 overripe bananas
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1/2 cup of butter, melted
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
Before you start mixing everything together, preheat your oven to 350°F and grease a loaf pan.
To make the banana bread, mash the bananas in a large mixing bowl until they are smooth and creamy. Add in the sugar, melted butter, eggs, and vanilla extract, and stir until everything is well combined.
Next, add in the baking soda, salt, and flour, and stir until the batter is smooth. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and smooth the top with a spatula.
Bake the banana bread for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove the banana bread from the oven and let it cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.
Once the banana bread is cooled, you can slice and serve it as is or add a little extra sweetness with a drizzle of honey or a sprinkle of powdered sugar. It’s also delicious served with a slather of butter or a dollop of cream cheese.
