How to make Banana Bread:
Mix your wet ingredients and your dry ingredients separately. Mix your ingredients together to make the batter. Fill your bread pan and bake. Pull from oven and allow to cool on a bread rack. Slice and butter to enjoy!
- Bananas - Make sure they are ripe, and even brown. Those are the best bananas to use for banana bread.
- Butter - melted
- Vanilla Extract
- All-Purpose Flour
- Baking Soda
Step Three continued - Add this to wet ingredients and whisk together until well combined but do not over mix.
Step Four - Pour batter into your prepared loaf pan and bake for 50-60 minutes or until cooked through. Allow cooling slightly before removing from pan and serving.
How to store banana bread and keep it moist:
Banana bread is a bread that can dry out pretty quickly if not eaten soon. The best way to store banana bread I have found is to wrap it in plastic wrap once it has fully cooled. The plastic wrap will help protect air from getting to the bread. You can also store it in an airtight container too. This bread should last up to 7 days.
Can you freeze banana bread?
Yup you sure can freeze this! Freezing this bread will keep it for about 3 months. Once the bread is baked allow it to fully cool and then wrap it in plastic wrap tightly. Wrap it tightly in aluminum foil and then store in the freezer. When ready to eat remove from the freezer and unwrap. Let it thaw on the counter covered with a towel for about 24 hours.
