Our favourite banana bread

Today I’ll share one of my children’s (and hubby’s, yep) favourite recipes: banana bread. It is very simple to make and it tastes delicious. You can serve it for breakfast, as something sweet with your tea or coffee, for picnics or children’s school snack. I often bake it with my girls and we very much enjoy the time together.

So, here it is…


  • 4-5 ripe bananas
  • 1/3 cup melted butter (cup is always 2,5 dcl) & some butter for the loaf pan
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • an egg
  • teaspoon vanilla extract
  • teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1,5 cup flour


And here’s what you need to do:

Do not use a mixer for this recipe, the bread will turn out best if you stir the batter with a wooden spoon. Preheat the oven to 180°C and smear the loaf pan with butter. Mash the bananas, but be careful to leave the chunks. This way, the cake will taste better.

Beat an egg in a small bowl. Mix butter into the mashed bananas in a large mixing bowl. Mix in the sugar, egg, and vanilla and what you now have is a liquid mixture.

Now sprinkle the baking soda and salt over the mixture, mix in and, finally, add flour and mix in again. Now you can pour the mixture into a buttered loaf pan.

Depending on how your oven works, bake between 45 and 55 minutes. When it’s done, cool on a rack for about ten minutes and then take it out of the loaf pan.
