Simple Banana Bread - Piece of Home

I am a Banana Bread LOVER. I mean, really? Who isn’t? I love how fast banana bread comes together and I am so in love with my Coconut Banana Bread recipe that I hardly try any others.

This super classic is great for when I don’t have any yogurt on hand or just need a quick and easy banana fix.

Simple Banana Bread - Dough Mix

You really don’t even need a mixer for this recipe but I was in a hurry and didn’t mind cleaning the beaters.

Mash up all the bananas until it smooth-ish and gooey. I try to get most of the large lumps out but it doesn’t have to be perfect.

Simple Banana Bread - add butter

Add the butter to the bananas.

Simple Banana Bread - egg mixture

Next, add the eggs. I doubled this recipe so that’s why it looks like so much. I don’t think I have ever not doubled a banana bread recipe. It’s so easy, so I just make two!
Simple Banana Bread - sugar

Add the sugar to the mixture. The recipe calls for a cup of sugar. I usually always put about half a cup to cut back on the sugar (I doubled the recipe here though so I did use a cup), you choose!

Simple Banana Bread - vanilla

Vanilla is one of my absolute favorite ingredients in any recipe. Especially for banana bread. It’s a must! Mix that all together with the flour, baking soda and salt. Put in greased bread pans.

Just like that! Simply Perfect! & Perfectly Simple Banana Bread!
