Best 5 Banana Bread Recipes

by in Recipes, July 19th, 2012


One of those timeless recipes that almost everyone has a memory of enjoying, classic banana bread is a buttery, just-sweet-enough loaf that pairs perfectly with a morning cup of coffee or an after-dinner scoop of ice cream. The secret to making the best-tasting banana bread is using overly ripe bananas. You know those super-soft, dark-brown nanners that have been sitting on your counter for the last seven days? Use those — they’ll offer the most-concentrated banana flavor and ensure moist, rich bread. Check out Food Network’s roundup of its best five banana bread recipes, a mix of classic and creative loaves that your whole family will enjoy.

  1. My favorite banana bread is actually a tweak on this applesauce recipe http://www.cooks.com/rec/view/0,184,145186-226202

    I changed up the recipe by using half whole wheat flour and half regular flour. I also add tons of walnuts and craisens to the mix.

    My kids and everyone at the fire house loves it! Recently I switched from making full loafs to mini loafs and muffins, both large and mini.
