Banana Bread Recipe

I had this banana bread craving, and I discovered a bunch of really overripe, squishy bananas, so I got a-baking. The aroma of the bread as it baked was so comforting. I served it with hot, black, unsweetened coffee and banana split ice cream. I know it’s a weird and yummy combo, but I hope you’ll enjoy baking this as much as I did.



200g butter

1-cup sugar

2 eggs (room temperature)

1 1/2 cups sweetened or unsweetened yogurt

7 overripe, blackened bananas (the best, really)

3 1/2 cups all purpose flour

2 1/2 tablespoons baking powder

8×5 inch loaf pan

Vanilla essence

Banana Bread




  • Preheat your oven to 150°C-160° (300°F-320°F) or gas mark 2-3, depending on oven intensity.
  • Blend 5 bananas together with the yogurt, mash the remaining 2 and set aside.
  • Sift flour with baking powder and set aside.
  • In your mixer, cream your butter together with the vanilla essence for 5 minutes.
  • With the mixer still running on low speed, add sugar to the butter.
  • Increase speed and allow to cream for 10 minutes, pausing at intervals to scrape down the sides.
  • Add your eggs, one at a time, till well mixed.
  • Add mashed bananas to mixture and mix thoroughly.
  • Add the flour mixture in 3 batches, alternating with the yoghurt mixture, mixing thoroughly after each addition, and ending with flour.
  • Pour mixture into your greased and dusted loaf pan, allow to bake in oven for 40-45 minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out dry.
  • Remove bread from pan onto a cooling rack or a serving plate.
  • Slice and serve.
