Cinnamon Banana Bread Recipe

What is the best thing to do when your bananas start to turn to inedible straight from the peel? Make banana bread of course. I had three bananas left that were turning and so of course I wanted to make some banana bread but could not find my recipe anywhere. I am actually kind of glad because this one that I am going to share with you is so much better than my old one. And it is so easy that you don't need a mixer and instead just a wooden spoon.

How amazing does that look? I was so proud of myself that it came straight out of the pan without breaking or sticking. Go one for the non stick method that I got from my mother recently. It is so moist and the top is not crusty at all and is more of a gooey texture which I love. It kind of reminds me of eating cake and just thinking about it it would taste so good with some cream cheese frosting on it. Think I need to make another one :) Apparently this is so good that my picky three year old actually likes it. Score one for mom. 

Ingredients

1/3 cup melted unsalted butter
3-4 ripe bananas 
1 cup sugar
1 egg beaten
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups flour

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C)

2. Grease your loaf pan using whichever method you use and set to the side until it is needed.

3. In a large bowl and with a wooden spoon mash up bananas and mix in melted butter. 

4. Mix sugar, egg, vanilla, cinnamon, baking soda and salt into the banana / butter mixture.

5. Once everything is completely mixed together start adding in the flour bit by bit until it is finally mixed in. 

6. Next pour the mixture into your greased loaf pan using a spatula to scrape down the sides of the bowl. 

7. Place into the preheated oven and bake for 35-40 minutes or until you can stick a toothpick or knife into it and have it come out clean. 

You can definitely add nuts to this recipe but I keep everything in my house nut free since my son is highly allergic to them. But walnuts would really go well in it if you like them or even pecans.

  5. I love banana bread! The only problem is I eat way to much of it if it is in the house. Even telling myself that I will freeze some of it for later doesn't seem to work. Thanks for sharing such a simple recipe, it looks delicious!

  14. We tried this bread and we LOVED it! My dad said that all the bananas should be saved for this bread. I love how easy this recipe is and that it has basic ingredients in it.
    It took us an hr to bake it.

  17. Looks delicious, but alas (sigh) I'm gluten-free. I'm sure they have a recipe for it though! I bet it'd taste good with a spoonful or two of peanut butter on top (except for people who have allergies, like your son), with a few chocolate chips sprinkled on top.

  33. Yum! I just made banana bread the other day with a similar recipe. Turned out great! I like to substitute the sugar for the powder of vanilla pudding. Makes it so moist and adds a hint of extra flavor! Happy SITS day!

  40. Hi, found you via SITS!
    Banana bread is my favorite kind of bread (except for *maybe* cinnamon swirl)- and it is so nice when it comes easily out of the pan. Doesn't that feel like such an accomplishment?
    Hope you have a great holiday weekend :)

  41. This looks good. It's hard to find banana bread recipes that don't have lots of oil or butter in them, so this looks like a good one.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh my , looks so good. Not a huge fan of Banana but I love Banana bread!

  43. I love banana bread. It's the best thing to make when your bananas are on their way out. Plus, my daughter thinks they're cupcakes so she eats them. I also have a recipe on my blog.
