Moist Banana Bread

Scott Wettleson


I always triple the recipe because making 3 loaves is just as easy as making 1 loaf and I usually give one or two away so…..
Also, I'm not exactly sure on the prep time because I know I'm not the fastest in the kitchen.

How to Make Moist Banana Bread


  • 1Adjust an oven rack to the lower-middle position and heat the oven to 350°F (175°C) degrees. Grease the bottom and sides of a 9 by 5-inch loaf pan; dust with flour, tapping out the excess.
  • 2Spread the walnuts on a baking sheet and toast until fragrant, 5 to 7 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  • 3Whisk the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, (and walnuts if you choose) together in a large bowl; set aside.
  • 4Mix the mashed bananas, yogurt, eggs, butter, and vanilla with a wooden spoon, or spatula in a medium bowl. Lightly fold the banana mixture into the dry ingredients with a rubber spatula until just combined and the batter looks thick and chunky. Scrape the batter into the prepared loaf pan(s).
  • 5Bake until the loaf is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 55 minutes. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack.
