5 Ways to spice up Banana bread.

We all how to make a basic banana bread. It is easy and delicious.


Basic Banana bread recipe.


  • 6 ripe Bananas ( most people use 4 but 6 makes it moist)
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 250 grams butter
  • 2 eggs
  • teaspoon vanilla essence
  • pinch of salt

Preheat the oven at 180 degrees. Mix all the ingredients together. Scoop into a bread pan and bake for 20 minutes or until ready. I usually have to bake mine for longer because I have a tiny Wiswell oven.

    Oh, I wish I bought more bananas last week and let them get all black and spotty so I could make this! I feel like I make banana bread way too often, but I still never get sick of it. I think I’ve made over 10 different banana bread recipes, so I’m excited to give yours a try as well. Have you ever had your banana bread topped with nut butter?! It’s amazing! Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe, and I can’t wait to see more in the future! Plus, your photography is so lovely 🙂
