Banana Bread

I love this easy recipe for banana bread. And I´m sure you will too!

This easy banana bread recipe is without a doubt the best way to use up those ripe bananas that are still in your fruit bowl and seems no one at home wants to eat them. Spoiler! They will, but in a different way. They just don’t know 🙂

One of the secrets to getting a super fluffy and moist banana bread is using melted butter and Greek yogurt.

How do you know when a banana is ripe? When the bananas start to have a dull yellowish color, with brown and black shades. Then you can consider that it is a banana that is ripening.

The darker the bananas are, the better! That means they are very ripe and the riper the bananas are, the more moist and sweeter the bread will be and the more banana flavour it will have! Plus, the butter and the yogurt will help bring out that texture. If you don´t have yogurt, you can use sour cream instead.

It’s time to use those ripe bananas!

How to Make this Easy Recipe for Banana Bread

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 º (356°F).
  2. Heat 115 grams of butter in the microwave for 45 seconds. It is important that it melts but not burns. Don´t worry if some pieces are still solid when you take it out, it will finish melting when you stir it. I recommend cutting the butter into pieces (3 or 4), it melts faster.
  3. Put the melted butter in a bowl and then add three ripe bananas. Mix together with a fork while mashing the bananas. 
  4. Add to your mashed banana mixer two eggs, 75 grams of Greek yogurt and one teaspoon of vanilla extract. Continue stirring with a fork until everything is mixed. You can use an electric whisk at low speed if desired. Set aside.
  5. In a separate bowl add your dry ingredients: 270 grams of flour, a teaspoon of baking soda (6 grams), a teaspoon of baking powder (6 grams), a pinch of salt and a teaspoon of cinnamon. Stir with a wire whisk until everything is well combined.
  6. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix together with a spatula until well combined. You will notice the batter getting brownie and more solid.
  7. Prepare the 25 cm. rectangular pan by first spreading butter and then sprinkling flour on top of the butter. This will help you unmold the bread later.
  8. Pour the batter into the pan and bake for 50 minutes. I recommend you not to open the oven door during this time. When the time is up insert a cake tester (or a knife) into the center of the banana bread to check whether it is done. If the tester comes out clean … Et voilà! You have a delicious banana bread!

If you want to give your banana bread a chocolate flavour, you can sprinkle some chocolate chips on top of the batter just before baking.
