Simply Perfect Banana Bread

(Author of Baker Bettie’s Better Baking Book) Kristin Hoffman whips up a banana bread recipe for you to try yourself.


One of the things I love so much about banana bread is that its quick and easy to make while still feeling so incredibly warming and comforting.

I have tried many banana bread recipes in my life. Some quite fancy with a lot of ingredients.

But I tend to always come back to my simple recipe that calls for only a few ingredients and comes together in a snap!

I also love using it as a base recipe to make all kinds of variations! Throw in about 2 cups of solid add-ins and you can make:

  • Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
  • Peanut Butter Chip Banana Bread
  • Blueberry Banana Bread
  • Toasted Pecan Banana Bread

And the list goes on!

The trick to making the best banana bread that is packed with flavor, is using bananas that are REALLY ripe.

I’m talking, wait until they are almost completely black. Trust me, its worth it!


And as always, if you make any of my recipes I am delighted when you leave a comment and review! It helps me to know if they work out for you and also helps them be found by other bakers!

Happy Baking!
