Banana Banana Banana Bread

My husband, being a lover of banana bread, sent me on a 3 years quest for the moistest banana bread recipe known to man. I found this one and fell in love! Enjoy!

Yeild: One 9x5 inch loaf
Prep Time: 15 min
Cook Time: 1 hour 5 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 20 min
Servings: 12


· 2 cups all-purpose flour
· 1 teaspoon baking soda
· 1/4 teaspoon salt
· 1/2 cup butter
· 3/4 cup brown sugar
· 2 eggs, beaten
· 2 1/3 cups mashed overripe bananas (approx 6 large bananas)

Directions: *see extra tips below*

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar. Stir in eggs and mashed bananas until well blended. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
3. Bake in preheated oven for 60 to 65 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.

Extra Tips:

For my oven, I had to reduce the temperature to about 300 degrees because my loaves were burning before cooking through. You may have to do a few test loaves to find what works for your oven.
