Banana Banana Bread

Ever have one of those moments where it is glaringly obvious that you are a mother.  One of those moments for me was the day I had the urge to make banana bread.

My kids go into phases with their food.  Some weeks they will eat a pack of 8 bananas in 2 days and other weeks 4 of the 8 bananas just sit there and I ended up throwing them away.   I don’t know when this started bothering me, but one day I just couldn’t toss them.  I googled a recipe for banana bread until I found one where I had most of the ingredients and it was just downhill from there.  I began hoping they would leave a couple bananas behind for me.  (WTF has become of me?!)

Anyway this recipe from Genius Kitchen has been a huge hit in my family.  It doesn’t need much and it’s absolutely delicious.  Enjoy!


What you’ll need:


  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Lightly grease 9 x 5 loaf pan or a 8″ cake pan
  3. In large bowl, combine flour, soda and salt.
  4. In separate bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar.
  5. Stir in eggs and mashed bananas until well blended.
  6. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten.
  7. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
  8. Bake in preheated oven for 60-65 minutes if using a Loaf Pan and 40-45 minutes in a cake pan or until a toothpick inserted into center of loaf comes out clean.
  9. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.
