Servings 1 loaf


  • 1.8×5-inch Loaf pan
  • Parchment paper
  • Medium and large bowls
  • Spatula
  • Whisk/fork/hand mixer/stand mixer


  • 4 ripe bananas
  • cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon  salt


  • Start by heating the oven at 350F.
    As the oven is heating, take a parchment paper and line in the loaf pan and allow the excess paper to dangle over. Spray the paper using cooking spray to ensure the bread does not stick.
  • Take a medium bowl and mix the flour, salt, baking soda and set it aside. Then take a large bowl and cream in the eggs and sugar, mix until they are well mixed to form a cream. When it is creamed, stir in mashed bananas. Then take the bowl with the flour and add the mixture in the large bowl bit by bit. Mix all the ingredients until they are all properly combined.
  • Pour in the mixture in the loaf pan and ensure that it is evenly distributed. You can use the spatula to help you smooth the batter on the top. Place the pan on the oven on the middle rack.
  • Let the banana loaf bake for about one hour. But after 50 minutes, you should start checking into ensuring it is ready. You can check by using a tester and inserting it in the middle part of the loaf. If the banana is ready, the loaf will come out clean. The top should be brown with a yellow interior.
  • Cool the banana bread for ten minutes. You can cool it by setting on the rack without removing it from the loaf pan. The bread needs to cool and solidify before removing it from the pan to avoid crumbling. Once it is cool, you can remove it from the pan by grasping the paper sling and lifting the loaf out. After that, allow it to cool on the rack for another ten minutes before slicing it.
