The recipe I am going to share with you is my grandma’s banana bread recipe. I grew up eating this bread and it is so yum! It is good hot and fresh out of the oven, but it is even better the next day when the banana flavor gets even stronger!
I featured this same bread in one of my earlier posts Accordion Rosette Gift Topper. Banana bread makes a great thank you gift!
- 4 Ripe Bananas
- 1 Cup Sugar

How to Make Grandma’s Banana Bread Recipe
This recipe makes 1 loaf. I like to double it because 1 loaf won’t even last a day around here.
Tip: I do not like to eat bananas that have browned, they are too mushy. That is when they are perfect for Banana Bread! I usually only have 1 or 2 bananas that aren’t eaten quick enough and make it to that icky stage. Since 4 bananas are needed for 1 loaf, toss those icky bananas in the freezer. They thaw pretty quickly by leaving them out on the counter.
After the bananas have thawed beat them to a liquid using your mixer. I use a Kitchenaid mixer.
Add all other ingredients – this picture is missing the flour.
Mix all ingredients until well combined.
I really like to add the Cup of Chocolate Chips, but that isn’t my hubby’s favorite so I don’t always do it that way, but it sure is tasty!
Grease and flour the inside of a loaf pan and bake at 350 for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the loaf comes out clean.
After the bread has cooled, slice to desired thickness and serve. I like it sliced thin with a lot of butter, hubby likes a plain thick slice, and my Mother-in-law likes it toasted. However you like to eat your banana bread, it is going to be delicious!
