Before the recipe let's quickly go through the ingredients; we need two big-size ripe bananas, one-third cup of butter, two eggs, three-fourth cup of brown sugar or white sugar, half cup of all-purpose flour, a pinch of salt, one tablespoon baking soda and one teaspoon vanilla extract or any other of your own choice. We'll try to make this an easy banana bread recipe for you!

Banana Bread Recipe:

Preheat the oven to 170° Celsius. Remove skin and mash two ripe bananas in a large mixing dish with a fork, leaving no large lumps. Melt one-third of a cup of butter. Then, whisk in the melted butter with the mashed bananas. After this add a pinch of salt and one tablespoon baking soda to this mixture. Now beat two eggs well and add ¾ cup of brown sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract in it, whip them together until you get a uniform smooth consistency. Add this mixture to the mashed bananas mixture and then whisk all this batter again.

Finally, add ½ cup all-purpose flour to the mixture and mix it gently. Remember you don't need to over-mix the flour otherwise the banana bread will be so dense. So just mix it well and avoid over-mixing. The batter is now ready to be put into a prepared loaf pan. Bake the batter for about fifty minutes in a preheated oven, then remove the banana bread from the oven. Let it cool and then you can serve it.

How to Enhance the Taste?

In every recipe, some tips need to be followed for the best results and to avoid any hassle. Here we are dropping some of the tested tips which will make your banana bread stand out.

1. Use over-ripe bananas while making banana bread. The more ripe the bananas are, the better the banana bread will taste, as they have a stronger flavor.

2. Do not over-mix the batter as it can cause the banana bread to become dense and tough, wasting all the ingredients and hard work.

3. Before pouring the batter into the loaf, brush it well with the oil. It’s best to use a butter paper too, so that the banana bread will not stick to the pan.

4. For extra rich flavor you can use chocolate chips, nuts, or chocolate chunks in the batter at last and then gently mix them.

5. Use a toothpick to check whether the banana bread is baked well or not. Just simply insert a dry toothpick into the banana bread and take it out, If the toothpick has moisture on it, the banana bread needs a little more time to get ready and if it comes out dry and clear, the bread is ready.

6. If you feel your batter has not that fluid consistency, you can add some cream to it. It will not only fix its consistency but also improve the taste.

7. For the best presentation and improved flavor serve the banana bread along with the vanilla topping.

So what are you waiting for? Go ahead, take out those overripe bananas and start making a banana bread today. It's not just delicious, it's healthy!
