How To Make Banana Bread

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and spray 9 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch bread pan lightly with cooking spray.

Transfer batter to prepared bread pan. I use a bread pan that is 9 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches. Anything close to this works just fine.

How To Make Banana Bread Moist

Once thebanana bread has cooled, try wrapping in plastic wrap to keep bread moist.

Before baking, sprinkle top of batter with cinnamon sugar mixture. Give a nice crunch and perfect churro flavor.

After 50-55 minutes, banana bread should be done. Remove and let cool for at least 30 minutes before transferring and slicing.

How To Store Banana Bread

Store banana bread in plastic wrap in an airtight container. I like to refrigerate my bread for up to 3 days.

Slice bread and serve either room temperature or warmed in the microwave for 15-20 seconds. Top with a little butter and more cinnamon/sugar if desired.

I keep my banana bread wrapped in plastic wrap, inside an airtight container in the refrigerator for about 3 days. Warm slices in microwave as needed.

    This has become my go to recipe!!!! It is sooooooo good.
    I freeze my bananas and then thaw before use. This gives you lots of juices for a really good banana flavor.
    Instead of making one large loaf, I either make mini loaves or use one of my fun cakelet pans. This ensures it cooks all the way through and doesn’t burn on the outside. Plus, it cuts the cooking time way down. I start with 20 minutes and extend by 5 or so until I’m good with the “doneness”.
    The BEST banana bread!!! Thanks for the recipe!

    I’m having the same problem. The outside seems to cook but the middle is completely raw. Any suggestions? I am afraid the outside is going to be rockhard and burnt in the inside raw. I am afraid the outside is going to be rockhard and burnt in the inside raw. It smells absolutely amazing though!

    Sooooo good! This was my first time making this and omg it was delicious!! My son came out of his room asking “what is that heavenly smell” and my daughter came out of her room saying “omg it smells amazing out here”. It was torture waiting for it to cool down but definitely worth the wait!! I will for sure be making this again!

    Its my 2nd time making and turned out great again, however, both times i have had to cook longer than the 55 minutes, by quite a bit since the middle remains raw.

    This bread is amazing! While the wait to try it was hard, it was definitely worthwhile. My family really enjoyed it. I liked that it wasn’t something I’ve had before. It’s hard to beat that cinnamon sugar smell in the kitchen!
