Homemade Banana Bread Recipe

Yesterday, my mom came to visit me to go shopping for shoes for some upcoming weddings I am in this summer.Tis’ the season for weddings! Before my mom arrived, I woke up early to bake my moms favorite quick bread, Banana Bread. It’s my grandma’s recipe and it’s been in the family forever, my grandma still makes a loaf or two for everyone for Christmas. It seriously is the best gift EVER!

And this banana bread recipe is one of the first recipes my mom taught me  how to make when I was learning to bake as a little girl, as I grew up I loved baking so much that  I took over all the baking in our house. Which is the reason, I have a passion for baking today. It makes me the most happiest, and luckiest girl to do what I love as a food blogger, sharing my love and passion for baking with all of  YOU!
Nutella, Banana Bread, Recipe

JUST A FEW BAKING TIPS:

✔  Don’t let the top of your bread BURN! About half way through baking this bread, make sure to check to see if the top of the bread is getting too brown and if it is just place a piece of aluminum foil over top of bread for the rest of the baking time to avoid burning the top of the bread.

✔  Want to know the trick to get the big, fluffy top!? Well, it’s easy, all I do is bake the banana bread at 375F for 15 minutes, then I REDUCE the heat to 350F and bake for an additional 40-45 minutes. I let the bread cool before removing from loaf pan.

✔  Lastly, this banana bread freezes very well. You can freeze this bread up to 3 months. When your ready to enjoy let thaw completely, and cut into slices.

    My banana bread never quite makes it to the oven. The reason? It is my favorite batter!

  17. Amy @Very Culinary — May 29, 2014 at 2:23 pm

    I can’t remember the last time I actually ate a banana just by itself – they always turn before I get to them. Banana bread is the best invention ever. And with Nutella? Even better!

    • Jenn Kurkiewicz — June 2nd, 2014 @ 8:51 am

      I totally agree, I always buy bananas and for some reason I forget about them until they are ready to go bad! Good thing I can make banana bread! 🙂

  18. ashley — May 29, 2014 at 12:34 pm
