Simple Banana Bread recipe

Banana Bread is delicious! I always forget how good it tastes until I have some. Then when I do, I revel in the taste, until I forget again and then discover it anew. This time around, I had some over-ripe bananas that seemed past their prime- Banana Bread is a great, healthy dessert to use those babies up!

This particular recipe is surprisingly low in sugar and butter- awesome! If you're feeling adventurous, add a little cinnamon, or nutmeg, or even some walnuts. This is just plain and simple, wholesome-tasting goodness.

Simple Banana Bread


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar (brown or white will do)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 1/3 cups mashed overripe bananas


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F 
  • Grease a 9x5 inch bread pan
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda & salt. 
  • In a separate bowl, cream together butter and sugar. 
  • Stir in eggs and mashed bananas until well blended. 
  • Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten. 
  • Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
  • Bake in oven for 60 to 65 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. 
  • Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, aka gobble it up while it burns your mouth :)
Serve and Enjoy!
