Let’s Make it
- 2 1/2 cups ripe bananas, mashed (approx. 5-6 bananas)
- 2 large eggs
- 10 tablespoons (1 1/4 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup chopped nuts (such as walnuts or pecans)
- 1 additional ripe banana, sliced (for extra banana flavor optional)
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9×5-inch loaf pan.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the mashed bananas, eggs, melted butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract. Mix well until all the ingredients are thoroughly combined.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the banana mixture, stirring until just combined. Avoid overmixing.
- Fold in the chopped nuts and gently stir in the sliced banana for extra flavor.
- Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan, spreading it evenly.
- Bake for about 60-70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Start checking for doneness around the 60-minute mark. (Might be a good idea to put it on a baking sheet in case it spills over).
- Once baked, remove the banana bread from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for 10-15 minutes. Then wrap it in tin foil and place in the refrigerator for 2 hours or more to seal in the moisture before slicing.
- Using 1 1/2 cups of flour will result in a slightly denser banana bread with a moist and tender texture. Enjoy your flavorful and moist banana bread with the added nutty goodness!
Moist, nutty, and bursting with intense banana flavor!
