Banana Bread

  • Yield : 1 large loaf
  • Prep Time : 15m
  • Cook Time : 1:20 h
  • Ready In : 1:45 h

This banana bread is packed with banana flavor, and an excellent way to use up lots of overripe bananas.

It does dirty quite a few bowls and bakes a long time – but it’s worth it!

The loaf comes out very moist, but retains great structure.

If you’re also a tea lover – remove stickers, rinse before use, and save up your banana peels in the freezer for Banana Peel Tea

    Mmm. Banana bread is my favorite! Trust me on this one, try swapping out some of the butter for greek yogurt next time, adds an extra little bit of flavor and keeps the bread super moist!
