My Go To Banana Bread Recipe

This is my absolute favourite banana bread recipe! It’s so easy and simple, but super delicious.


I started making it when I was really short on money because it’s cheap and I eat it for breakfast for over a week. The ingredients are mostly things you can find in your pantry, and if you don’t have bananas the best ones to buy are the very overripe ones at your grocery store that are discounted.


I couldn’t find those :(. So I grabbed the ripest ones I could find at the grocery store.

To make the banana bread you need one large bowl (I used a medium one and it ended up being really hard to keep the batter from spilling out),some stirring spoons or a hand mixer, and a bread pan.

Prep Time: 10 Min
Cooking Time: 50- 60 Mins
3 Overripe Bananas
1/3 Cup Melted butter
1 Tsp Baking Soda
Pinch of salt
3/4 Cup Sugar
1 Large Egg, beaten
1 Tsp Vanilla
1 1/2 Cups Flour


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and butter and flour your bread pan. Mash three bananas in a large bowl with a fork or a potato masher.


Melt 1/3 cup of margarine and mix it into the bananas. I recommend using stirring spoons or a rubber spatula because a mixer can over blend the ingredients and make your bread hard. Then mix in 1 teaspoon of baking soda, a pinch of salt, 3/4 cup of sugar, 1 teaspoon of vanilla, and 1 and a 1/2 cups of flour- mixing each ingredient in at a time.

Pour your batter into your floured pan and put it into the oven for 50 minutes to 1 hour.


Remove from the oven and insert a toothpick or a butter knife into the centre. If it comes out clean, you’re good! Take it out and let it cool completely before serving.
