Rescue Your Bananas with this Irresistible Banana Loaf Recipe

Do you often find yourself with a surplus of overripe bananas? One week they’re the star of the fruit bowl, the next they’re languishing, begging to be rescued. Fear not! I’ve got just the solution to turn those brown beauties into a delectable treat that’ll have everyone clamoring for more: my perfected banana loaf recipe.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups mashed overripe bananas
  • 4 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour two 9×5-inch loaf pans.
  • In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, cream together the sugars and butter until smooth. Stir in the mashed bananas, beaten eggs, and vanilla extract until well blended.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the flour mixture and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
  • Divide the batter evenly between the two prepared loaf pans.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 60 to 70 minutes, or until a paring knife inserted into the crown of each loaf comes out clean.
  • Remove from the oven and let the loaves cool in the pans for at least 5 minutes. Then, transfer them to a cooling rack and let them cool completely, about 30 minutes.


Slice into thick, generous pieces and savor the moist, banana-infused goodness. This banana loaf is perfect for breakfast, brunch, or as a sweet afternoon pick-me-up with a cup of coffee or tea.
