World's Best Banana Bread

Follow Me on Pinterest

I have been using this recipe for a long time and it is wonderful. It calls for 3-4 bananas but 2 will suffice. I always seem to have 2-3 bananas going bad that didn't get eaten throughout the week, so I use them in this recipe.  
Here is what you will need:

  • 3-4 ripe bananas, smashed
  • 1/3C melted butter (I like to use margarine, it keeps the bread moist)
  • 1C sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2C all purpose flour
Preheat your oven to 350*.  Mash bananas with a whisk and top with the melted butter; mix. Mix in the sugar, egg, and vanilla. Sprinkle salt and baking soda over the top of the mixture, then mix in. Add flour, and mix thoroughly.

 Now, you can choose to bake these in a few different ways. Today I chose to make a mini loaf and my daughter wanted to make mini muffins. If you bake it all in one big bread pan it will take about an hour to cook through. The mini loaf takes about half an hour and the mini muffins took about 15 minutes. Regular sized muffins typically take 30 minutes also.

 Aren't they cute?? Perfect for little (or big!) mouths! My kids gobbled them up before I knew what happened!
The bread is slightly crispy on the top and edges but perfectly moist on the inside. We like to enjoy it warm or toasted with butter on top.
