This was the best banana bread I have every made/had. Super easy to make! Wonderfully moist. I added dried cranberries that made it even tastier.
Does it make any difference if you use muffin liners or just spray with non stick? And does it change the amount of time at all?
Hi, Mandy! If you’re making muffins, I’d recommend using muffin liners as they make it A LOT easier to remove the muffins from the tin. Even with cooking spray, I still often have a lot of trouble removing muffins and cupcakes if I bake them right in the tin. And no, it wouldn’t make a large difference to cooking time. Enjoy!
Delicious and so easy to make!
So quick and handy! Only took 35 mins in my fan oven! A tasty treat!
Every time I make this I love it more. The additional tip about more or less sugar is very helpful.
Best Banana Bread!!! Easy to make
This is a very simple and easy recipe. Instead of using butter , I used coconut oil and 1/2 cup sugar . I baked it for 30minutes only and came out perfectly. I added blue berries, too. Sooo good. I’ll try using wheat flour next time. Thank you for sharing.
This was very easy to make, and was not dry at all. We liked that it was not dense, either. Perfect for using up my three overripe bananas.
I have made this recipe so many times! It’s always perfect! I have to admit I am a sucker for pecans so I do add about a half cup of chopped pecans. Just wanted to say thanks!
I made this in muffin form, I did 2 dozen muffins at 350 for about 26 mins. And they were cooked slightly too much. I used 3 bananas per batch so 6 total. The taste was good but the muffins were dryyy… I’d love to try again. Any suggestions? I don’t think they were in too much longer past where they should have been
Hi, Mandy! I’d just cook your muffins for less time. Start checking them at 15 minutes and then every few minutes after.
I’ve made this recipe many times whenever I have old bananas around, and it’s perfect every time.
It’s soo simple and the bread turned out superbly. We love it. Thank you!
Far the best recipe I’ve tried! Thank you for the awesome recipe!
Can anyone give me the exact metrics of a cup of flour or butter. A cup just doesn’t mean anything here in the UK.
For those in metricland, I used 115g butter, 220g flour and 125g sugar. It came out perfectly!
Hi Shell, depending on your measuring cup (they are painfully inconsistent) and how you do a volume measure of flour (lightly spoon into measure cup or scoop into flour bin with measuring cup and level with a knife) a cup of flour can weigh anywhere from 120 g to 150 g. Given how I typically measure out flour it weights 140 g for 1 cup. So 1 1/2 cups would be 210 g. The sugar measure would be 100 g (1/2 cup equivalent) to 150 g (3/4 cup equivalent). Hope that helps!
How many minutes should I bake it for to make muffins instead of a loaf?
Hi, Aurora! Start checking your muffins after about 15 or 20 minutes, and then every few minutes after until a toothpick inserted in the middle of a muffin comes out clean. Enjoy!
She’s posted in the past to check at 30 mins… I checked at 26 mins and they were cooked slightly too long …
I’ve baked these muffins many times and 15 min is the max. I usually turn oven off after 12 minutes and keep them in oven for total of 15.
Made it last night with my 2 year old and it’s perfect!! Simple but so tasty and I think you can add chocolate chips or some berries if you want too. Love it!!
The recipe was great and easy to follow. The bread is delicious. I had one question, how many cups of bananas should there be? I picked bananas off my tree and some were rather small. I used seven small bananas for two loaves of bread and it worked, but it was very thick.
Hi Sharon, about 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cup of mashed banana puree.
