Banana bread is a type of quick bread that is made with mashed ripe bananas, flour, sugar, and eggs. It is typically baked in a loaf pan, and is known for its moist and tender texture. The ripe bananas provide natural sweetness, moisture, and a subtle banana flavor to the bread.
- 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2 medium)
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg (optional)
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C) and grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the mashed bananas, granulated sugar, brown sugar, vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla extract. Mix well until all ingredients are fully incorporated.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and flour. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the banana mixture and stir until just combined.
If desired, fold in the chopped walnuts.
Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and smooth the top with a spatula.
Bake for 60-70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
Allow the banana bread to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
Enjoy your homemade banana bread warm or at room temperature, with butter or cream cheese spread on top if desired.
