Time to bake! 350 degrees F. for45-55 minutes, until baked through and golden on top.

What Kind Of Pan Should I Use?

I like to use loaf pans to make my breads. There are a few different sizes to choose from. You can use a 4 cup, 6 cup, or 8 cup loaf pan. It’s nice to have one small and one large loaf pan for different recipes.

What Should I Serve With Banana Bread

I like to serve this recipe with a nice fruit bowl. Nice and simple.


Make your bread the night before so you can slice the day of serving.

Store any leftovers in an airtight container either room temperature or chilled in refrigerator.
