Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 50 mins
Total Time 1 hr
Servings 8 slices


  • 3 to 4 very ripe bananas peeled (about 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cups mashed)
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
  • Grease a 4x8-inch bread loaf pan. Make sure to verify that your pan sizing is correct.
  • In a medium to large size mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas until smooth. Add melted butter into the mashed bananas and stir to combine.
  • Stir in the sugar, egg, and vanilla extract.
  • Add in the flour, baking soda and salt. Mix until combined but take care not to over-mix.
  • Pour the batter into your prepared baking pan.
  • Bake for 50 minutes to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean. If you are worried about bread over browning towards the end, you can loosely place a piece of aluminum foil over the bread.
  • Remove from oven and let cool in the pan for approximately ten minutes. Then remove the banana bread from the pan and let cool completely on a wire cooling rack.
