Best Banana Bread


Best Banana BreadBanana bread is a bit like chocolate chip cookies…like really everyone claims to have “the best’ chocolate chip cookie recipe.  There are a gazillion recipes for banana bread out there.  How can this one be the best?  How can I claim that this IS the best banana bread, clearly this issue is subjective.  But hey this is my blog right, I can claim what I want to.  But seriously folks.  THIS.  IS.  THE.  BEST.  BANANA. BREAD.  EVER!!


Best Banana BreadI can claim this because I have heard with my own ears,  more than a hundred times, “THIS IS THE BEST BANANA BREAD EVER!”   And truthfully it is.  I always turns out.  It never flops in the middle.  It bakes evenly.  It’s super most, but not wet and gummy.  It freezes really well.  Let’s see what else can I boast about this bread?  It tastes amazing!  I think it’s the vanilla and the smidge of cinnamon, which BTW I sometimes add a pinch of nutmeg too, it’s not enough spice to really stand up but just a enough to give this bread a spin on its heal.



Best Banana BreadAs you can see some people like their bAH-new-new bread (A certain senior in high school may or may not have called banana bread bah-new-new bread when he was three.) with chocolate chips.  Easy enough!  Add in 1 cup of mini chocolate chips.  Why NOT regular chips?  Well, because they add blobs of chocolate and sometimes they sink to the bottom and burn…blahck…this is not good!  Same goes for nuts if you love nuts add a cup of your favorite nuts, chopped.  If some like nuts or chocolate chips however some do not, well then just sprinkle one of the loaves with add ins and EVERYONE will be happy!





Best Banana BreadSo there you have it!  The Best Banana Bread EVER!  I  was shocked that I had not shared this recipe before.  One of Ainslie’s friends had been at our house, eaten some banana bread, went home and wanted to make it, but couldn’t find the recipe here!  So here it is Emma.  This recipes for you kiddo!


Best Banana BreadHere’s a horrible little trick my mother taught me.  Spread cold salty butter on a slice of  sweet warm bread and let it melt in.  It’s ghastly I tell you!  Simply awful.  Never ever try it.  Unless your into adding random fat calories to your diet.  I happen to be one of those people.  Butter.  Bring it on!

Enjoy this holiday weekend!  Hey make some bread and bring it to a friend 😉

Your welcome, Sheila

    I like banana bread too. I used to make it using my mother’s recipe and then someone told me to try it with an extra banana. I’ve never looked back. Your bread does look like the best ever!

    One thing I’ve always noticed about banana breads: they don’t usually taste banana-y until they’ve had a chance to sit for a day. THIS recipe, however, was so good piping hot out of the pan, we devoured about half a loaf! Thanks for sharing this one, Sheila! (And I thought I had probably wrecked it because I didn’t beat the oil and sugar til fluffy, and the batter was very runny.)
