Banana Bread

I love this recipe because it is super moist. I don't like dry banana bread, so I was glad when I tried this recipe. It is indeed easy and yummy!  I found it on Allrecipes here.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 1/3 cups mashed overripe bananas


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar. Stir in eggs and mashed bananas until well blended. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 60 to 65 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.

Sprinkle brown sugar on top just before baking.  Gives the bread a nice sweet crunch on top.
Substitute applesauce for half of the butter.
Add some vanilla and spices like cinnamon and nutmeg.
Use applesauce to compensate for not enough bananas. Doesn't hurt the flavor at all!
