servings: 12       prep time: 15 min.       cook time: 1 hour 10 min

2 c all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 c butter
3/4 c brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 1/3 c mashed overripe bananas (~ 5 bananas)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ginger


  1. preheat oven to 350 degrees F. lightly grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan.
  2. in a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt.
  3. in a separate bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar. stir in eggs.
  4. mash bananas in another bowl. (no need to put in another bowl if using frozen bananas. bananas are soft enough to put directly into flour mixture.) then mix bananas with flour in large bowl.
  5. next combine ingredients of both bowls. add cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. stir just to moisten. pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
  6. bake in preheated oven for 70 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. let bread cool in pan.

again. i’ve been wanting to make banana bread. this is really dense, but incredibly moist and smells great with all the mix of spices. this is an awesome banana bread recipe ! i’ll definitely use this again in the future.
