  • 3 very ripe bananas (about 300 -350 gr)
  • 1/2 cup (115 g) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) buttermilk
  • 2 teaspoons (10 ml) pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (200 g) brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups (210 g) all-purpose flour

Store: Leftover bread can be kept, covered, at room temperature for up to 4-5 days. Extra tip: Wrap banana bread in plastic wrap to keep it from drying out.
Freeze: Let the banana bread cool completely. Then wrapped plastic wrap and aluminum foil. Freeze for up to 3 months. For freezing, I recommend cutting the bread into individual slices and then freezing.
Extra Tips:
  • If using nuts, toast them in the oven for 10 minutes as the oven is preheating to add an extra layer of flavor.
  • When mashing the banana, leave them as chunky or as smooth as you prefer.
  • Baking time will vary slightly depending on the moisture and sugar content of your bananas, so I recommend starting to check for doneness around 50 minutes and then every 5 minutes after.
