Total time: 70 minutes

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 60 minutes

Yield: 1


2-3 very ripe bananas (peeled)
1/3 cup melted butter
1 cup of sugar (can easily use 3/4 cup, or drop it down to 1/2 cup if you want it less sweet)
1 egg (beaten)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground ginger
Dash of ground cinnamon


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C), and butter a 4×8-inch loaf pan.
  • In a mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas with a fork until smooth. Stir the melted butter into the mashed bananas.
  • Mix in the baking soda, salt, nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon. Stir in the sugar, beaten egg, and vanilla extract. Mix in the flour.
  • Pour the batter into your prepared loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes (check at 50 minutes) at 350°F (175°C), or until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven and cool completely on a rack. Remove the banana bread from the pan. Slice and serve. (A bread knife helps to make slices that aren’t crumbly).
