This is a delicious cake that can be made with bananas. Making banana bread yourself at home is really easy.

What is banana bread?

Banana bread is a cake made from ripe bananas. It is a classic in the USA and Canada, where it is known as ‘banana bread’. Although the name contains “bread”, it is more like a cake than savory bread.

Tips for the perfect banana bread

Use very ripe bananas: the riper the bananas, the sweeter and juicier the banana bread will be. So wait until the bananas are really overripe before using them for this recipe.

Leave the banana bread to cool completely: It can be tempting to eat the banana bread straight out of the oven, but it’s best if you let it cool completely. This will make it even juicier and allow the flavors to fully develop.

Store the banana bread properly: You can store the banana bread in an airtight container at room temperature. This will keep it fresh and moist for several days. You can also freeze it to keep it for longer.

Frequently asked questions about banana bread

When I say the right bananas can make or break your Best Banana Bread Recipe, I’m not joking around. You see, not all bananas are created equal when it comes to baking. Here’s the lowdown on picking the perfect bananas for that moist, sweet loaf we all crave:

Spot the Sweetness: Aim for bananas that have turned black or dark brown. These overripe bananas are not past their prime; instead, they’re at their peak for baking, brimming with natural sweetness and moisture that’s essential for a rich, flavorful banana bread. It’s this high sugar content that transforms your bread from just okay to “Oh, wow!” King Arthur Baking confirms the magic of these ripe beauties.

Ripening Ritual: If patience is a virtue you possess, buy those yellowish-green bananas and give them a week of rest at room temperature. Watch as they slowly don their black-spotted cloak, ready to be the star of your banana bread recipe.

Banana Bread Bank: For those spur-of-the-moment baking urges, keep a stash of frozen overripe bananas. Peel them, pop them in a freezer bag, and they’ll be your rainy-day treasure trove for impromptu baking sessions.
