I saw a big bag of really ripe bananas and thought I haven’t made a banana bread in a while so here it is. Banana Bread might have been the first thing I ever baked that I free styled. I used to bake a few loaves every week and shared the bread with my co-workers. It’s pretty basic and easy and you can make the banana bread in one bowl. This recipe makes two loaves or about 24 servings. You must use really ripe bananas like as ripe as photo for the banana flavor. The bread comes out sweet (but not too sweet), moist and almost caramelized. It’s a tasty treat that seems almost healthy.
Ingredients for about 24 servings
4 oz sweet butter – melted
2 cups sugar
1 cup dark brown sugar
3 XL eggs – slightly beaten
4 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
pinch sea salt
non stick canola spray
Set oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl add butter, then sugars, mix well, add eggs, mix well.
Add bananas and mash with potato masher till pretty smooth.
Add rest of dry ingredients and hand mix till combined.
Spray two bread loaf pans with non stick spray.
Divide the batter between the two pans.
In my oven the loaves were done in 45 and 50 minutes. remove from oven when the top of loaf in the crack feels cooked.
Let the loaves rest on a counter and pop them out when they cool to just warm.
Slice and serve.
Came out great I just winged it. You might go ape over it.
