Banana Bread

This is a really good recipe, everyone likes it. The key to a good outcome is knowing the amount of time needed to bake and that depends on the pan. I use a pan that has 8 mini loaves (could probably use a cupcake pan). There is always a little batter left over that I put it in a small oven-safe ceramic bowl which yields a small round cake. Make sure your knife comes out clean when testing for doneness.

  • 3-4 Ripe or Overripe Bananas
  • 1 cup(s) Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) Flour
  • 1 teaspoon(s) baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1/4 cup(s) Melted Butter
  • 2 teaspoon(s) Sour Cream
  • 3/4 cup(s) chopped walnuts (optional)
  • 3/4 cup(s) raisins (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350

  2. Mash Bananas with a fork or in a mixer. Stir in other ingredients (batter should be consistently thick). Pour batter into well-greased and lightly-floured loaf pan. (I use a pan with 8 small loaf pans, like rectangle cup cake pan). Might be left over batter (can bake in a ceramic oven-safe bowl). Bake 30-60 min. depending on the pan, make sure you check with a knife until you learn the time needed with your pan, don't over bake.
