Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 medium overripe bananas, mashed with a fork (about 1 cup)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup canola oil (or your preferred cooking oil)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 9 by 5 inch loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the mashed banana and the eggs. Add the buttermilk, oil, sugar, and vanilla and mix well.
  • Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined. Do not over mix.  Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan.
  • Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour and 10 minutes. When a toothpick is inserted into the center of the bread, it should come out with moist crumbs but with no raw batter on it.
  • Let the bread cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Remove the bread from the pan and place on a cooling rack to cool completely before slicing. Store covered in the refrigerator*.

Notes

*It may not be common to store banana bread in the refrigerator.  But, this bread gets EVEN BETTER after it's been covered in the refrigerator for a few hours.  If you're making this for breakfast, I recommend making it the night before.
