This timeless banana bread recipe is the only one you’ll ever need. It’s incredibly moist, has the perfect amount of banana, with hints of cinnamon and nutmeg.
Hi Food Friends! Sorry I’ve been kind of MIA over the last week. I had the awesome opportunity to take photos of a fellow food friend’s recipe. I’ll let y’all know when she uses the photos for her super yummy and healthy recipes!
Then I was busy finishing off this loaf of banana bread.
There’s no doubt this is the best banana bread ever, and it goes waaaay back to when I was oh, probably 11 years old. I’m pretty sure I had always been a fan of banana bread; either that, or this was the day I became the biggest fan ever and I can’t remember life before it.
My mom’s friend (hi, Aisha!) came over with a warm loaf of banana bread and my little 11 year-old mind was blown. Her family recipe quickly became ours.
Isn’t that the best though? I love the timeless recipes that get passed down through the generations because they’re just so OH-MY-GOODNESS-good that they don’t need to be changed.
Needless to say, I’ve been making this banana bread ever since. And friends, that means it’s been a loooong time.
Sometimes I add walnuts to the top, sometimes I don’t. It all depends if you want a little extra crunch.
All the time though, this banana bread is the moistest, yummiest, bananaiest banana bread you’ll ever make. Oh and the hint of cinnamon and nutmeg…PERFECTION. They add such a warmness; it’s like a big hug comin’ from the best banana bread ever.
As is the way with baked goods, please be sure you don’t over bake, or it may not be the moistest banana bread. Serve warm with some whipped honey butter for an extra sweet treat!
What’s your recipe that’s stuck around because it’s just so gosh darn good?Print
