Banana bread is a classic and delicious baked treat that is easy to make at home. Here is a simple recipe for making a moist and flavorful banana bread:


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2 medium-sized bananas)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan with butter or cooking spray.
  2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In a separate large mixing bowl, cream the sugar and butter together until light and fluffy. Add in the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Gently fold in the mashed bananas.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and smooth the top with a spatula.
  6. Bake the banana bread for 60-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Remove the banana bread from the oven and let it cool for 10-15 minutes before removing it from the pan.
  8. Enjoy your homemade banana bread warm or at room temperature, sliced and spread with butter or topped with your favorite spread.

Optional: you can add nuts, chocolate chips, or other ingredients to make your banana bread more delicious.


  • Use very ripe bananas for the best flavor.
  • Be careful not to overmix the batter or your bread will be tough.
  • You can also add 1/2 tsp of cinnamon powder to the dry ingredients to give it a nice aroma.

With this recipe, you can enjoy the delicious taste of homemade banana bread in no time!
