Food: Moist Banana BreadOver the last weekend, I was craving banana bread, and I wanted it to be EVERYTHING that any banana bread could have. I wanted that old fashioned cinnamon-brown sugar-banana flavor; I wanted it to have that light crunch on the outside yet crazy moist, fluffy, & dense on the inside.

That’s not asking for too much right?

Well, I looked up some great recipes online and came up with the best combination ever! The perfect banana bread. My search is over. This is my favorite banana bread..for now
It’s everything that I’ve ever wanted in a banana bread, and I couldn’t wait to share it with you all.

If you’re the type that likes to bake up quick bread and take them into work or give them away as gifts, this is the recipe you want to use. It has crowd-pleaser written all over it and tastes ever better the next day and is much sweeter the next day as well!

Moist Banana Bread

Cook time: 1 hour 10 mins

This recipe makes: one loaf


(All ingredients should be room temp.)

Three large extra ripe bananas (1½ cups mashed)

1 teaspoon lemon juice

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

1½ teaspoon cinnamon

½ cup white sugar

½-3/4 cup brown sugar (I used ½ cup)

8 tablespoons butter, softened ( 1 stick)

2 eggs, beaten

1½ teaspoons vanilla extract

½ cup buttermilk


 1. Preheat oven to 325. Grease and flour a loaf pan.

 2. In a medium size bowl, mash bananas until creamy and stir in lemon juice. Set aside.In a medium size bowl, whisk together flour,

3. In a medium size bowl, whisk together flour, into baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.

4. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars.

5. Beat in the eggs until combined. Fold in the bananas.

6. Add in the vanilla extract and buttermilk. Beat until combined.

7. Throw in the dry mix to the wet mixture.

Stir gently and just until the flour is incorporated. Do not over stir

8. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan.

9. Bake on center racks for 1 hour and 10 minutes. Cooking times may vary. Check on bread at the 1-hour mark. A toothpick inserted into the center should come out clean, and bread should be golden on the outside.

10. Brush the top of the bread with butter if desired when it comes out of the oven.

11. Let cool for 5 minutes and then remove the bread from the pan and place on a cooling rack to finish cooling.

12. Slice and enjoy! (flavors will intensify the next day)

*It is super important that you do not over stir the batter, or it will turn out dry and tough. Mix just very gently and just until the flour is incorporated.

 *Taste even better the next day!! Banana flavor is much stronger.

 *Cooking times can vary. Check on the bread after an hour or a little before.

 *Add walnuts or chocolate chips if desired.
