This easy banana bread recipe is moist and sweet and perfect for using up a bunch of ripe—maybe heading to over-ripe!—bananas. A generous amount of fruit along with eggs and vegetable oil make it particularly rich and tender. A teaspoon of cinnamon adds depth while still letting the pure banana flavor and aroma shine through. You can keep the bread as simple as you like, or try your favorite chopped nuts or other mix-ins: pecans, walnuts, chocolate chips or chunks or even coconut are all delicious. Toast a slice and slather it with butter or whipped cream cheese for breakfast, try it with a cup of your favorite tea or coffee or add a frosting or glaze for an easy loaf-pan dessert: There’s no wrong time for banana bread!



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In a large bowl, cream together the eggs and sugar. Stir in the mashed bananas, vanilla, oil and cinnamon. Stir in the flour mixture, a third at a time, until just combined.
  2. Pour the batter into a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan. Bake for about 1 hour.
