  • 4 bananas
  • 1/2 cup salted butter melted
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar firmly packed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour



  1. First thing you will do before making this banana bread recipe is to pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, add the bananas to your mixing bowl and with the whisk attachment, mix for about 2 minutes. This helps get those bananas mashed up!
  2. Then, add in the melted butter to the mashed bananas. Mix for about 1 minute. Then add in both sugars. You will then mix for about 2 minutes until the sugar has been mixed well.

  3. The next thing you will do is add in the eggs. Mix well, and then add in your vanilla extract and baking soda.

  4. Finally, add in the flour. Mix well, and use a rubber spatula so that you get any ingredients that may be sticking to the sides of the bowl or the bottom.

  5. Pour this banana bread batter into a greased loaf pan and bake for 50-60 minutes. You should be able to stick a toothpick in the center and it comes out clean.

  6. Let it cool for 5 minutes and then serve! Any leftovers should be wrapped up with plastic wrap or placed in an airtight container.
