The Ultimate Banana Bread – Super Moist!

Ever wonder what to do with your very ripe bananas?

The Ultimate Banana Bread is super moist and it’s made with simple ingredients. Delicious cake-like banana bread bursting with flavor, it’s impossible not to have a second serving! 
I haven’t made this bread in a while, and since they predicted snow again here in NY,  I decided to revive this recipe from our archives and make it for my grandchildren to enjoy while I’m visiting.


Well, I can tell you this, straight out of the oven, as I was slicing, and slicing, everyone kept eating, and eating, heck- I almost didn’t get this photograph, HONEST!

So moist, this banana bread practically melts in your mouth! All you need is a glass of milk or some coffee to go with it. It’s amazing! Simple and wholesome ingredients, delicious for breakfast or as a snack! Add a slice of homemade banana bread into your children’s lunch box as a snack, they will love it too! Better than any junk food.
This recipe makes 3 loaves. You can easily freeze them. I like having homemade breads in the freezer, especially when we have guests staying with us. It’s always nice to be able to have something else on the table, other than eggs, pancakes or yogurt for breakfast.
We look forward to making more homemade breads for you! In the meantime, have a great day!
Here’s a Tip:  Ever wonder what to do with your very ripe bananas?  Instead of tossing them out,  just throw them into your freezer. Peel them and place them into a freezer zip-lock storage bag.  When you need a banana for a recipe, just take out what you need, allow the bananas to defrost a little, then add them to your recipes.

    I love banana bread, and LOVE trying new recipes for it!
    Another favorite thing to do with bananas..slice them up, freeze them, then when you need an ice cream fix, take those frozen nanners, and run them through the food processor…the texture is alot like vanilla ice cream, and you can treat it the same! YUM!

    This banana bread looks incredibly moist and delicious! I love a big warm slice with a little butter! I also love to freeze bananas and put them in smoothies. Or just blend frozen bananas into banana froyo. Yum! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas – and I hope you have a happy New Year!

    This looks like very good banana bread. I like the idea that you described it as cake like. Sometimes I prefer that versus bread like. But truly? I just love banana bread!
