Banana bread is a timeless comfort food that’s perfect for breakfast, a snack, or even dessert. This classic recipe will guide you through the process of making a moist, delicious loaf that’s full of banana flavor.


  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter at room temperature
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the mashed bananas with the milk and cinnamon. Add this mixture into the creamed butter and sugar.
  4. In another bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to the creamed mixture and stir until just combined. Do not overmix.
  5. Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 60 to 70 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
  6. Let the bread cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.

Tips and Variations

  • Add 1/2 cup of chopped nuts such as walnuts or pecans for a crunchy texture.
  • For a healthier version, substitute half of the all-purpose flour with whole wheat flour.
  • Include chocolate chips or a swirl of peanut butter for a sweet surprise.
  • Top the banana bread with a simple glaze or cream cheese frosting for extra indulgence.
