Banana Bread

I needed to make a quick desert for a family get together and happened to have 3 overly ripe bananas laying around so of course I made banana bread.
When I get ready to make something I don't already know how to or have an easily accessible recipe on hand I just google it and find one that looks good and easy. So I found this one at Simply

It was super easy and very very tasty, as a matter of fact all my family members took some home with them and it was gone.

I know it says you don't need to use a mixer but I use our Kitchen Aid for everything. So here are all the ingredients minus the flour.
I added the flour as the mixer was mixing. And here we are ready to go into the oven:

And the finished product:

It was really good. It was a little more done on the outside that I would have liked it to be but the inside was delicious! If you are interested here is the recipe I used from the above site.

Banana Bread Recipe

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 1 hour

3 or 4 ripe bananas, smashed
1/3 cup melted butter
1 cup sugar (can easily reduce to 3/4 cup)
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour


No need for a mixer for this recipe. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). With a wooden spoon, mix butter into the mashed bananas in a large mixing bowl. Mix in the sugar, egg, and vanilla. Sprinkle the baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix in. Add the flour last, mix. Pour mixture into a buttered 4x8 inch loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour. Cool on a rack. Remove from pan and slice to serve.

Yield: Makes one loaf.

Hope you enjoy!

  1. And it was delicious!


  2. That looks and sounds so delicious! I love banana bread...especially when it has chocolate chips in it! Great easy recipe; I'm so glad you shared this at Shine on Fridays!

  3. I added some candied ( i am not sure if this is a good term .. but i mean nuts that you put in a pan with some sugar and wait until it kinda becomes some sort of caramel around them.. excuse me i am from germany) pecan nuts and it was awesome! Quick recipe that does not require all the american ingredients that i cant find in germany. So thank you very much!

  4. I'm so glad you enjoyed it, and the candied nuts sound amazing. I might have to try that myself!
