  • 2-3 very ripe bananas peeled
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1 cup of sugar can easily use 3/4 cup, or drop it down to 1/2 cup if you want it less sweet
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • Dash of ground cinnamon


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C), and butter a 4x8-inch loaf pan.
  • In a mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas with a fork until smooth. Stir the melted butter into the mashed bananas.
  • Mix in the baking soda, salt, nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon. Stir in the sugar, beaten egg, and vanilla extract. Mix in the flour.
  • Pour the batter into your prepared loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes (check at 50 minutes) at 350°F (175°C), or until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven and cool completely on a rack. Remove the banana bread from the pan. Slice and serve. (A bread knife helps to make slices that aren't crumbly).


Notes: Egg must be at room temperature.
