What’s more comforting than a loaf of banana bread baking in the oven? Few things my friends, few things. So, in honor of National Banana Bread Day, I wanted to share my favorite recipe with you guys. It’s from the Better Homes And Gardens Cookbook, you know, the one that EVERYONE has on their bookshelf. Great cookbook, by the way. So many tried and true recipes to be found inside!

I’ve tried several other recipes for banana bread, but I always end up coming back to this one. It comes together in minutes, and stays fresh for days. It also uses more mashed banana than most recipe I’ve seen call for, which I like. I’ll usually have 3 bananas left at the end of the week,  and that’s just about what this recipe calls for. It’s great to whip up on a Friday night to munch on all weekend long. Toasted, with a smear of butter or honey, along side a cup of tea. Heaven!

    It certainly uses more bananas than usual! I can absolutely imagine how banana-na this tastes!

    My favorite banana bread recipe is from Flour Bakery, but every banana bread I’ve tasted has been amazing. This one look great!

    Just read the part that says cool completely and wrap tightly and store overnight before slicing. The bread came out of the oven and cooled maybe 5 minutes and then the fam was cutting it and covering with butter or cream cheese. Half the loaf is gone! Very Good!

      Dina, I just leave it out on the counter in a resealable bag or container – but feel free to refrigerate if you’re more comfortable with that.
