    I work for Yummly. Banana bread was always a staple growing up at home, but I’ve yet to find one that reminds me of the one like my grandma used to make. This banana bread recipe is a keeper and one I plan on making again. The bread is moist with a crisp outside edge with fresh banana flavor. I always put bananas that get overripe into the freezer so I didn’t have any non-frozen ones one hand. I just threw all the ingredients in the blender with the frozen bananas and made the batter right in the blender and poured it into the bread pan. I made an orange glacé icing to top the banana bread with like my grandma used to make. Just used 1 cup confectioners sugar, 1 1/2 Tbsp orange juice, 1 1/2 Tbsp light corn syrup and 1/4 tsp vanilla extract. Very good and can’t wait to make again!

    Have also made many times. It’s my go to when I only have two old bananas, which seems to be the case more and more, so perfect when you don’t need more than a few. I always add extra cinnamon. Also super great is only needing one bowl to prepare. Family loves it.

    I usually make banana bread according to the amount of bananas and types of ingredients I’ve got in my pantry... didn’t have any dairy, so it was good to find a recipe that would fit this condition

    So good! I used more of a brownie pan to make it and it took only 30 minutes to bake. Would make it just like this a million times over. Super easy and great if kids wanna help! Added pecans in mine.
