Easy, Moist Simple Banana Bread

I’m finally back on here but part-time.  I missed my blog and so I decided to just add something simple but good.  This Easy, Moist Simple Banana Bread, it’s perfect!


I didn’t add walnuts, but if you like a little crunch, go ahead and add some.


The bread is crispy on the outside, but nice and moist in the inside.


1-1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar but if bananas are really sweet, I just add 3/4 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1/2 cup canola oil
2-3 medium overripe bananas, mashed (1 1/4 cups)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350°. Coat a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, whisk the flour with the baking soda, cinnamon and salt. In another bowl, combine the sugar, eggs and oil and beat at high speed until light-colored and creamy. Add the mashed bananas and vanilla and beat until smooth. Stir in the dry ingredients until thoroughly blended.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake in the middle of the oven for 50 to 60 minutes, or until the top is springy and a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Let the loaf cool in the pan for 10 minutes before turning it out onto a rack to cool completely.
