Ingredients
Directions

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Butter a 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan.

Cream the sugar and butter in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

In a small bowl, mash the bananas with a fork. Mix in the milk and cinnamon. In another bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Add the banana mixture to the creamed mixture and stir until combined. Add dry ingredients, mixing just until flour disappears.

Pour batter into prepared pan and bake 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Set aside to cool on a rack for 15 minutes. Remove bread from pan, invert onto rack and cool completely before slicing.

Spread slices with honey or serve with ice cream.

Definitely what I know banana bread to be. So many options to tweak it with; i.e. ice cream, chocolate chips, walnuts, Nutella, etc. What a great base or even great on its own. Love it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made exactly as written with the addition of walnuts, and it was too sweet (should have known better when a recipe calls for a whole cup in one loaf).  I always use very, very ripe bananas for bread so next time I will cut the sugar down to 2/3 cup instead of a whole cup.  Otherwise a great and easy recipe (esp. if you make it all in one bowl to avoid extra dishes).  I've made a lot of different banana bread recipes and I like this one the best despite it's super sweetness.   item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good,  Delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Moist and delicious with just a slight crunch (I think it's due to the butter)! This is now my go to recipe for banana bread. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I hate that you have to rate this before posting. What if you have a question like I do? Has anyone tried to exchange the butter with coconut oil? I think it would be healthier and would love the subtle coconut taste but don't want to ruin a whole loaf if it doesn't work out. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent recipe, we loved it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This Recipe was hands down the best banana bread I have ever made/had!!! I did read reviews before making it, so I cut the sugar in half and I added just a pinch of salt since I used salted butter, I fluffed the flour and added 1 teaspoon of vanilla and my bread came out super moist and delicious!!!! Highly recommended!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a hit! Best banana bread I've made. I added the vanilla that others have mentioned, used 4 large bananas and covered the top with chopped walnuts. I'm going to make more soon, just waiting for the bananas to get extra ripe. Yum! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Followed this recipe exactly and this bread was dry, and the flavor was bland. Ended up throwing it out. Do yourself a favor and move on from this recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy, quick, and DELICIOUS! Simple ingredients- doesn't make a big mess and is easy to prep. This bread was moist, flavorful, and oh so easy. I'd make it again and again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I actually just saw another posting where someone subbed Coconut oil & said it made the world of difference! Worth a try for sure :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
Oh no, so sorry that it didn't work out for you. I made it and it was perfect. Give it another try and check out the other reviews to see if you can make a couple of changes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
