Banana Bread Loaf: A Delicious Recipe!

This post may contain affiliate links. For more information, read my full disclosure.

We try to eat up all the bananas we buy in this house, but sometimes those babies can get REAL ripe, REAL fast! So, I have two choices if I don’t want them to go to waste. For some I choose to peel, cut in half, & then freeze for my Shakeology drinks (yum!). For others, I choose to make some delicious banana bread!

This banana bread recipe is simply easy & produces a just-sweet-enough, moist loaf of bread. I was never a fan of banana bread (or sweets in general), but this has just enough sweetness to it that I can eat it alongside my cup of coffee. The hubs loves this stuff and I hope you will too!

Ingredients:

  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 c sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 c butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 c flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 c sour cream

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

You can use an electric mixer or mix by hand like I did.

First you want to mix together the butter, sugar, & egg. Whip it up good in a medium size bowl!

Then add in the flour, baking soda, salt, & cinnamon.

Once those are mixed well, add the sour cream, vanilla extract, & bananas.

For the bananas you can mash them in a separate bowl before mixing into the banana bread batter or throw them in as little chunks. Either way is up to you! I just tore mine into small chunks as I added them to the bowl.

Once everything is mixed together well, pour the batter into a lightly greased bread loaf pan.

Bake for 60 – 70 minutes or until the inside is cooked. To check if the banana bread is cooked through, you can poke a toothpick into the center. If it comes out clean, it’s done and if it comes out with some batter attached, you need to cook a little longer.
