Banana Bread

Michelle Bates-Phipps


WARNING! This bread makes your house smell so good!

I used Martha Stewart's Banana Bread Recipe. Very nice and easy recipe. Also very easy to add in variations... This way YOU can make it your own too. I do advise when making breads to stick to the basic recipe the first so you know how it should turn out. Adding spices can be easy, but anything else might change the texture or baking time in a way that you might not like...

How to Make Banana Bread


  • 1smash bananas. The rule is 3 large or 4 small bananas per cup. Chop walnuts. it's great if you have a manual nut chopper so you can do quite a few at once, but it is also okay to just buy chopped walnuts in the store.
  • 2preheat oven to 350. Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray or spread surfaces with butter.
  • 3In the bowl of your stand mixer, place butter. Add sugar and cream together. Add eggs and mix to incorporate
  • 4in a separate bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt.
  • 5turn mixer on low and slowly incorporate flour mixture into butter mixture.
  • 6make sure to mix up from the bottom of the bowl with a rubber spatula to make sure everything gets mixed together. It will not taste well if all the butter and sugar are in the middle and the flour and eggs are on the outside!
  • 7mix in smashed bananas. Mix in sour cream. Fold in walnuts.
  • 8place in prepared pan and put pan into preheated oven. Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes (70:00 on your digital timers!)
  • 9Bread is done when you insert a knife into center and it comes out clean. Let cook 10 minutes in pan, then cool longer on a wire rack before serving.
  • 10variations: add cinnamon or pumpkin pie spices. add raisins. use different kinds of nuts. Sprinkle nuts on top of bread before baking. Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top of loaf before baking.
  • 11the first time I made this I added an extra 2 Tablespoons of bananas and 1 tablespoon of vanilla.
