  • Large Mixing Bowl


  • 1/2 cup butter (softened, 1 stick)
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup mashed banana (heaping, about 2-3 bananas)
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


  • Heat the oven to 350 degrees farenheit. Grease a 9x5 loaf pan with nonstick spray.
  • Beat your butter, white sugar, and brown sugar together in a large bowl, for about 2 minutes until creamy and light.
  • Beat in the eggs, one at a time until blended.
  • Add in the vanilla extract and mashed banana and mix until smooth.
  • While mixing slowly (by hand, or with a mixer), add in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon, and stir together till just combined.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared bread pan.
  • Bake for 55-65 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then remove from the pan and continue to cool on a cooling rack, or enjoy warm.
  • (The bread will be much messier to slice when warm)**
