How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C), and butter a 4x8-inch loaf pan.
  • In a mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas with a fork until completely smooth.
  • Stir the melted butter into the mashed bananas.
  • Mix in the baking soda and salt. Stir in the sugar, beaten egg, and vanilla extract.
  • Mix in the flour.
  • Pour the batter into your prepared loaf pan.
  • Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour at 350°F (175°C), or until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven and let cool in the pan for a few minutes.
  • Then remove the banana bread from the pan and let cool completely before serving.
  • Slice and serve. (A bread knife helps to make slices that aren't crumbly.)

  • REMEMBER that the darker the bananas are the more cancer fighting properties they have so use the darkest ones you have!

  • I am not fond of nuts, I assume if you want nuts you may add them.

  • 6 Brilliant Egg Swaps That Will Work for Any Baker
  • 1. Applesauce
  • Use 1/4 cup of unsweetened applesauce in place of one egg in most baking recipes. Some sources say to mix it with 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder. If all you have is sweetened applesauce, then simply reduce the amount of sugar in the recipe. Applesauce is also a popular healthy replacement for oil in many baked goods.
  • 2. Banana
  • Use 1/4 cup of mashed banana (from about half a banana) instead of one egg when baking. Note that this may impart a mild banana flavor to whatever you are cooking, which could be a good thing.
  • 3. Flaxseeds
  • Believe it or not, hearty-healthy flaxseeds can be used as an egg substitute! Simply mix 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseeds with 3 tablespoons of water until fully absorbed and viscous. Use in place of one egg. (You can use pre-ground flaxseeds or grind them yourself in a spice or coffee grinder.)
  • 4. Vegetable oil (I would not use this one, personally)
  • Typically 1/4 cup of vegetable oil can be substituted for one egg when baking. If you are short more than one egg, you will want to try another method, as any more vegetable oil may make the recipe too oily or greasy.
  • 5. Water, oil and baking powder
  • Whisk together 2 tablespoons of water, 1 teaspoon of oil (like corn or vegetable oil) and 2 teaspoons of baking powder. Use this in place of one egg. When used in cookies and other baked goods, it works so well no one would ever know.
  • 6. Aquafaba
  • The hot new egg replacement is bean juice — specifically the liquid that comes in your can of chickpeas. It may not work for everything, but if your recipe calls for egg whites, whip up some aquafaba instead (about 3 tablespoons per replaced egg). For best results, use an unsalted variety.
  • After successfully using these food substitutions, you may employ them for more than emergency backup in the future. They are all vegan alternatives and, with the exception of the vegetable oil, are more heart-healthy than eggs. Using banana, applesauce or other puréed fruit in baked goods is a wonderful tactic to boost flavor and make them incredibly moist. Talk about a happy accident!
