  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan with butter or cooking spray.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mash the bananas with a fork until smooth. Stir in the sugar, egg, melted butter and vanilla extract.
  • In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet banana mixture and mix until combined.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven and let cool in the pan for a few minutes. Then remove the banana bread from the pan and allow it to cool completely before slicing and serving.


You can store banana bread at room temperature for 3 to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 to 4 months.
