Banana Bread Recipe




  • 1 ¾ cup flour

  • 1 1/3 cup sugar

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 3 ripe bananas (you can store these in the fridge until you are ready to make the bread)

  • ½ cup vegetable oil

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • ¼ cup plus 1 tablespoon buttermilk

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 cup chopped pecans (optional)





Banana bread is a great way to use overly-ripe bananas and makes a delicious breakfast bread option.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9-by-5-inch pan.

Combine and set aside the flour, baking soda, sugar and salt.

In a large bowl of a mixer combine the bananas, vegetable oil, vanilla, buttermilk and eggs.  Add dry ingrediants and mix until well combined. If adding nuts, do so now. Bake 1 hour and 15 minutes until loaf is golden brown and split open.
