This past weekend Remy and I made some yummy homemade Banana Bread. It’s one of our favorites. Remy loves bananas, so he loves the taste. I actually hate bananas, but still love the taste. It’s a win, win for all!

My recipe is so easy, so I wanted to share with y’all too. I don’t know why I always thought Banana Bread was more complicated…it definitely isn’t.
I’m using my favorite baking dish from Vietri. It’s not a true loaf pan, but a small rectangular baking dish. Perfect for the bread. Sharing the matching berry bowl too! All of the items are linked at the bottom of the post.
Simple Banana Bread Recipe:
2-4 very ripe bananas, peeled (I prefer 3 bananas.)
1/3 cup melted butter, unsalted
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 350 Degrees.
Butter or oil a 4×8 inch or 9×5 inch baking loaf (or some sort of small rectangular baking dish).
In a mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas until smooth.
Add the melted butter, egg, and vanilla extract. Stir.
Add baking soda, sugar, flour, nutmeg and cinnamon. Mix.
Keeping mixing till it’s all combined evenly.
Pour batter into loaf pan (don’t forget to make sure it is greased).
I add more pecans to the top of the batter. That is optional. I don’t have an exact amount, I just kind of sprinkle them on there.
Bake for about 40 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
*Oven times vary. May only need 35. Some may need up to 50 minutes. I begin checking at 30 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool. For clean, easy to slice pieces, let the bread cool completely.
Also, if you’re not a fan of pecans or nuts, you could leave those out completely, and it’s still delicious!
Remy loves it plain. Justin loves it heated with just a little butter spread on top. It’s a great thing to have on hand if you have guests in town, or something to bring to a friend’s house as a ‘thank you’ for hosting gift. You can easily take the bread out of the loaf pan and just wrap in aluminum foil if doing that.
Happy baking & happy making memories in the kitchen!
