No picture – but you know what banana bread looks like.
This bread (Or cake? No, that adds calories. Bread it is) is SO good. And super easy. You don’t have to get out the mixer, all you need is a bowl and a spoon. The original recipe makes 2 loaves, but I halved the recipe and baked it in a mini-bundt pan (adorable). I also used a bit more banana than the recipe called for, and it was fantastic.
Here’s my single-loaf version:
Easy Banana Bread (Original recipe here)
- 1 3/4 cups flour
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 3/4 tsp baking soda
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup water
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 3 medium overripe bananas, mashed
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a loaf pan or mini (half-size) bundt pan.
Combine all ingredients in large mixing bowl (I mashed the bananas in the bowl first, added eggs and beat a little bit with a fork, then added everything else).
Pour batter into prepared pan.
Bake 45 min-1 hour or until toothpick/knife comes out clean.
Cool on wire rack for at least 15 minutes before turning bread out onto tray. Cool completely before slicing, if you can stand it.
