Home Made With D: Banana Bread

I know it’s only been 4 days since I last baked anything (Brazo De Mercedes) but that Brazo didn’t last long ‘coz it was sooo frickin’ GOOD! It now lives happily ever after in our bellies.

So what am I to do with my dying bananas?


Here is a recipe that I’ve been using since forever. It’s super simple and easy.

If you like your banana bread nice and moist, this is the recipe you’d definitely want to try!



Ingredients: 3 Dying Bananas, 1 Egg, 1 Egg Yolk, 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract, 1/3 cup Buttermilk, 1/2 cup Oil, 1 cup Brown Sugar, 3/4 teaspoon Baking Soda, 1/4 teaspoon Salt, 1 cup All Purpose Flour

Preheat oven to 350F

Step 1 — In a blender, add your over ripe bananas, buttermilk and oil then blend for about 5-10 seconds ’til it’s smooth.

Tip: You can also mush the bananas however you like. I personally, prefer to use a blender to save me some time 🙂

Step 2 — Transfer the blended bananas to a medium sized bowl.

Step 3 — Add all your brown sugar and whisk away!

Step 4 — Drop your eggs and vanilla extract and whisk away again!

… Not too much tho 🙂

Step 5 — Once you are done adding all your wet ingredients, you can now add the dry ingredients to your bowl.

Tip: Don’t forget to either sift or whisk all your dry ingredients together first. I also split the flour mixture in half to avoid lumps rather than just dumping all the flour mixture at once. DO NOT OVER MIX

Step 6 — Grease your 9×5 in. loaf pan.

Tip: I’m already using a non-stick loaf pan so I just lightly sprayed my pan.

Step 7 — This is optional, but you can now fold in some chocolate chips, walnuts, m&m’s, or whatever you want to add to your banana bread batter.

Step 8 — Pour your banana bread batter to your greased loaf pan.

Step 9 — Tap your loaf pan on a hard surface about 3 times to pop some of the air bubbles in the batter and then bake in the oven for about 50-60minutes or just until it’s done.

Tip: Once you are about 40 minutes in, loosely cover the top with aluminum foil to avoid the top from getting too dark or from burning.

Step 10 — Use a cake tester to check if it’s done.

Tip: You’ll know it’s done when your cake tester comes out clean. You can also tell by just gently feeling/tapping the top of the banana bread with your fingers.

Last Step — Cool down before taking it out of the loaf pan. Once it’s completely cooled down, give yourself a high five and have a slice of your delicious banana bread 🙂
