Classic Banana Bread with a Twist

Classic Banana Bread

Discover a classic banana bread recipe with a twist that adds an extra layer of flavor and excitement to this beloved treat.

Traditional Ingredients

While the basic ingredients remain the same—ripe bananas, flour, sugar, eggs, butter, baking soda, and salt—this recipe incorporates a unique twist to elevate the flavor profile.


Whether it's adding chocolate chips, nuts, dried fruit, or a splash of rum or cinnamon, the twist ingredient complements the natural sweetness of bananas.

Perfect Bananas

For the best banana bread, opt for overripe bananas with brown spots. They are sweeter and provide a deeper flavor to the bread.

Baking Instructions

Bake at 350°F (175°C) for 60-65 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Dry Ingredients

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt until well combined. This ensures an even distribution of leavening agents.

Mashing the Bananas

In a separate bowl, mash the bananas until smooth, leaving a few chunks for added texture.


Mix in the eggs, one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract. These ingredients provide structure and flavor to the bread.
