Best Banana Bread in the WWW


  • 3 bananas large overripe
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 eggs large
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups flour all-purpose (you may also use whole wheat flour)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda


  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, raisins, chocolate chips, dried fruit, or other mix-ins and toppings chopped


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and grease your 9 x 5” loaf pan.
  • In a large bowl, add the melted butter and bananas. Mash together with a fork until smooth.
  • Mix in the milk and cinnamon (if using) until well-combined.
  • Add eggs one at a time, stirring until no yellow streaks remain.
  • In a separate bowl, stir together flour, sugar, salt, and baking soda.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until well combined. Be careful not to overmix the batter so as not to overwork the gluten.
  • Pour batter and bake for 50 to 55 minutes. 
  • Test doneness with a toothpick; insert one in the center of the loaf. If it comes out clean, it’s ready.
  • Remove from the oven and let it cool in the plan for a few minutes. Transfer the bread onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
