My Favourite Banana Bread

My favourite banana bread

Banana bread…sweet, simple and satisfying…

There’s no shortage of recipes to be had out there for this popular loaf bread.
In fact, if I was new at baking and looking for a good one, it would be pretty hard to choose which one to try out.

Well search no more my friend…because today’s recipe is delicious and sure to become a trusty favourite!

I have baked many, many banana breads over the years and I love experimenting…

tried adding in new ingredients…

tried leaving out old ingredients…

debated on adding nuts or leaving them out…

Some were quite delicious, others not so much, but what I realized is that, at the end of the day, there is nothing quite as satisfying as a simple, old fashioned slice of banana bread…


This recipe, created by me, is the one I now call our family favourite.

Give it a try and let me know what you think.


*makes 1 loaf


1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil (or melted unsalted butter)
2 eggs
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2-3 very ripe, large bananas, mashed
1/3 cup greek yogurt, vanilla, plain or coconut
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt


Preheat oven to 350F.

Grease bottom only of a standard size loaf pan.

Add sugars and oil to a mixing bowl and beat with a whisk until well combined.

Add eggs, vanilla, bananans and yogurt, mix together well.

Add remaining ingredients and mix just until combined. Do not over mix.

Pour batter into a loaf pan, sprinkle top with some extra white or brown sugar (I like to use the granular demerara sugar for toppings) and bake for 50-55 min.

Cool on wire rack for 10 min, remove from pan and cool 15 minutes more before slicing.
