I’ll let you in on a little secret 🙂 I used vanilla butternut for a little extra yumminess!
To save time, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mash bananas in a bowl and set them aside.
Mix the flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl and set aside. Then, cream butter and brown sugar until completely mixed together. To the creamed butter mixture, add the eggs, mashed bananas, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. Blend completely.
Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients a little at a time. Blend thoroughly but don’t over-mix. If using a stand mixer, scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl so there are no lumps of flour left. Pour into a well-greased loaf pan.
Bake on the lowest rack in your oven for 55-60 minutes. When it’s done you should be able to insert a toothpick and it will come out clean. If the top is getting too burnt and the inside is not done, cover it with aluminum foil and bake for another five minutes.
Let it cool before cutting with a serrated bread knife. This recipe makes 1 loaf of super moist banana bread.
