How good is banana bread? Warm with butter spread over the top that gets slightly melty, little crunch on the edges and super moist in the middle. O. M. G. I can’t.

I haven’t made this banana bread in a lonnnnng time so when one of my friends (shout out to Brooke) asked if I had a good recipe I obviously had to whip a loaf up. I usually have bananas in my freezer so I was good to go. Sidenote- did you know how cheap bananas are from Costco? A big bunch of organic bananas costs like $1.50. We don’t go through bananas that fast, so I throw them in the freezer. Look how prepared I am. So proud.

This is an extremely easy recipe that doesn’t take much time. Bonus: your house will smell amazing.

Warm with butter spread over the top that gets slightly melty, little crunch on the edges and super moist in the middle.

Ingredients

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted and slightly cooled

1 cup packed brown sugar

2 large eggs, beaten

1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

45 ripe bananas, mashed

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a loaf pan with nonstick baking spray then line with parchment paper. Makes for easy removal of the bread.
  2. In a stand mixer, beat together the butter, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla until well blended. Add the bananas and mix again until combined.
  3. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt. Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and beat on low until just combined. Add the pecans (if using) and mix again until combined.
  4. Pour batter into the loaf pan and spread out evenly. Sprinkle the sugar over the top of the batter.
  5. Bake for 45-55 minutes or until a toothpick in the center comes out with no batter. Remove from the oven and let cool. Slice and serve with butter.
