Best Banana Bread

This is definitely a rich version of banana bread, and you know it was good because two loaves didn’t last very long. In fact, I never even took a picture.

These are a few slight changes to the many banana bread recipes I found online and what we had here at home.

First, preheat the oven to 350 F.

Also, get your loaf pan ready. This recipe made two loaves. I used butter to grease the pan.


  • 2 c. sugar
  • 1 c. butter (softened)
  • 5 eggs
  • 2 c. flour (I had whole wheat)
  • 6 T. milk (buttermilk is an option)
  • 2 t. baking soda
  • 1.5 c. of bananas (4 – 5 small, ripe bananas)
  • 1 T. vanilla extract


1. Make sure you’re preheating the oven to 350 F.

2. Mix everything in a large mixing bowl. Let the ingredients sit for an hour at room temperature.

3. Pour mixture into your loaf pan (or pans) and bake for 50 minutes to an hour – use middle rack.

*If you don’t want to make two loaves, you could use the extra to make muffins or cut the recipe in half to make one loaf.
