Easy Banana Bread Recipe

I actually found this recipe out of an old cookbook my grandmother picked up from a church, and it’s absolutely amazing. It’s pretty hard to get wrong, and the ingredients are quite simple. The recipe calls for bananas, and I usually use three to four frozen bananas, but it depends more on what size they are. This recipe is super easy and I make it all the time… because who doesn’t love banana bread?


  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 4 large bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 milk

Melt the butter in a large bowl until melted, then add sugar and vanilla. Stir until combined. Then add the bananas ( I prefer frozen ones as they mash and slide out of the peel better) and eggs to the butter mixture. Put the flour, salt and baking soda in a small bowl, and stir them together. I usually put my milk in a liquid measuring cup, but a small bowl works as well. Starting with the flour, pour a small amount into the butter mixture until combined, then pour a small amount of milk into the butter mixture, and repeat, ending with flour. This alternating method works well to make the banana bread the right consistency. Pour into one greased loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour, or until toothpick or knife comes out clean. Let rest in the loaf pan for 5-10 minutes before removing, then cover in parchment paper to finish the cooling.
