Here is an Easy Moist Banana Bread Recipe that you will want to make over and over again! The banana flavor in the bread is amazing. And with the right portion of ingredients as stated in this recipe, you get a bread that is sufficiently moist. This Banana Bread tastes even better the next day!
8tablespoonsbutter or magarine (1 stick, half cup or 114g)softened at room temperature
Half cupwhole liquid milk
Grease a 5 by 9-inch loaf pan with about a teaspoon of oil (vegetable, corn, peanut or canola oil will work well here) and set aside. You could line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper just to ensure the banana bread comes out easily.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius).
Peel your bananas and place in a bowl. Mash using a fork or potato masher. Add the milk and mix together.
Place butter/margarine in another bowl and add the sugar. Mix together using a wooden spoon until well combined.
Add the eggs to the butter and sugar and whisk together until just combined. Do not overmix.
Add the banana-milk mixture to the egg mixture. Add the vanilla extract and mix together until just combined. Do not overmix.
Add all the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon to the wet ingredients.
Mix all of the ingredients together until just combined to form a batter. Again, do not over mix.
Pout the batter into the greased loaf pan then level the top.
But in preheated oven and bake for 50 - 55 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the banana bread comes out clean.
Let it cool then remove the bread from the pan, cut and serve!
1. The bananas you use in this recipe should be absolutely overripe for best results. I love using bananas that are ripe till their skin starts turning black. This yields the best flavor and makes the banana bread super moist!2. I have blended bananas together with the milk before for my banana bread and it turned out great. However, mashing the bananas allows for some banana chunks and when it bakes, it yields a great texture! My kids love finding little chunks of banana here and there in their banana bread!3. The butter you use in this recipe could be salted or unsalted.4. To keep banana bread, I usually just wrap it in foil paper and place it on my countertop. I usually keep it there for just a day because it never survives more than 2 days. To keep it longer, I suggest placing the banana bread in Ziploc bags since they are airtight then you place in the fridge. Not that exposure to air will make your banana bread dry out. Before serving banana bread out of the fridge, bring it to room temperature so it can be moist again and not hardened by the cold from the fridge.This recipe was first published in May 2016. It has been updated with better photos, more tips, and a video. The recipe remains the same!
