Banana bread is a delicious, moist bread that’s perfect for breakfast, dessert, or a snack. It’s easy to make, and you only need a few simple ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen. In this blog post, we’ll show you how to make banana bread in just five simple steps.
Step One: Gather Your Ingredients
The first step is to gather your ingredients. You’ll need:
- 3 ripe bananas
- 1/3 cup of melted butter
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon of baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
Step Two: Preheat the Oven and Prepare the Pan
Once you have all of your ingredients, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. While the oven is preheating, prepare a loaf pan by spraying it with cooking spray or lining it with parchment paper.
Step Three: Mash the Bananas
Now it’s time to start making the batter! Start by mashing the bananas in a large bowl until they’re smooth.
Step Four: Add the Remaining Ingredients and Mix Well
Next, add the melted butter, sugar, egg, vanilla extract, baking soda, and salt. Mix everything together until it’s well combined. Then, slowly add the flour while mixing until everything is incorporated.
Be careful not to overmix the batter, otherwise, your banana bread will be tough instead of fluffy.
Step Five: Bake and Enjoy!
Finally, pour the batter into your prepared loaf pan and bake for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let the banana bread cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving. Enjoy!
