Banana Bread

Updated: Sep 24, 2023

1/4 cup melted butter

1 cup sugar

1 egg (beaten)

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 teaspoon banana extract (optional but helpful)

3/4 cup milk

1 1/4 cup or about 3 medium very ripe bananas - mushed

1 3/4 cup flour

1 Tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

I add chopped walnuts to mine, but not everyone loves nuts in their banana bread - so consider it an option!

Mix all the ingredients by hand except the flour. The batter will be lumpy. Add the flour a little at a time using a mixer.

Bake at 350 degree about 45-50 minutes or until fork comes out clean.

Add additional melted butter to top as soon as it come out.


This recipe was shared with me by my kindred spirit, Robin. It's the best banana bread recipe I've ever used. I don't bother looking for any others.
