Buying a bunch of bananas can often lead to having a few inedible, overripe bananas left over. This simple banana bread recipe is the perfect use for the bananas you did not get a chance to eat. Common ingredients and a fool-proof recipe make this delicious banana bread the perfect breakfast, dessert, or party dish!


  • 3 Eggs

  • ¾ cup Butter

  • 2 cups Flour

  • 1 cup Brown Sugar

  • 1 cup Sugar

  • 1 tsp. Vanilla

  • ½ tsp. Salt

  • 1 tsp. Baking Soda

  • 3-4 Bananas (overripe)


  1. First, preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. In a large bowl, dump and mix together all of the dry ingredients. In the next few steps, you will prepare the remaining ingredients before adding them into the dry mixture.

  3. In a small microwave safe dish, melt the butter in the microwave by heating for 5-15 seconds, in 5 second intervals.

  4. Crack the eggs into a seperate medium bowl, and use a fork to beat the eggs well.

  5. In another medium bowl, use a fork to mash the bananas into a near-liquid consistency.

  6. Finally, add the butter, eggs, vanilla and bananas into the large dry ingredient bowl. Mix well using a fork and your hands, until all dry ingredients are absorbed and the batter reaches an even consistency.

  7. Divide and pour the batter into two greased bread loaf pans.

  8. Bake for 45 minutes, or until golden brown. Test to see if it us done using a toothpick: poke and if the toothpick comes out doughy, it needs a few more minutes in the oven. If clean, the bread finished baking.

  9. Carefully remove from oven, let cool, and enjoy!
