How to Make Banana Bread Recipes - There are a few things you can do to make any banana bread recipe special.
If you've tried to find the perfect banana bread recipe and just haven't found the one you want yet, here are a few ideas.
Our favorite banana bread recipe, (found here), is so good because it calls for fresh milk and butter, 3 eggs and a greater amount of bananas than many banana bread recipes you may have tried.
Tips For Better Banana Bread
If your banana bread recipe seems too dry and you'd like to improve it, there are several things you can do.
You can add more oil or melted butter. You can use more bananas, reduce the amount of flour or use a different shape and size pan. You can also try reducing the time in the oven.
Be sure your bananas are ripe. We think very ripe the bananas are better. This seems to release the banana flavor into your bread as well as provide a moister end result. And moist bread is going to win hands down over dry bread.
Don't try all of these at once. Just know that these are things you can do to make your banana bread recipe better. Often, just over-baking it can make bread too dry so try reducing the baking time for a first step.
Here's Our Banana Bread Recipe
The banana bread recipe we have printed for you here is the absolute best on earth…in my humble opinion…but you can always doctor up other recipes to be almost as good trying the above tips.
When adding nuts to a banana bread recipe, it's really up to you whether you use walnuts or pecans. I've never tried almonds, but any nut would be good. Nuts add texture as well as flavor to your banana bread recipe. Often, people chop till the nuts are too fine.
Try chopping the nuts just to break them up a bit and see what a difference this makes in your banana bread recipe. The texture as is better. Larger nut pieces break up the smoothness of the banana bread.
You can serve banana bread up with a slice of Colby cheese and a glass of milk or other favorite beverage for a great quick breakfast bread or on-the-go snack.
Record Your Recipe Changes
Remember to write down the changes you make to your banana bread recipe as you do them or you will forget what you did. If your family loves your new banana bread, you will want to be able to make it again and again. How many times we think "Oh, I'll remember that" but so much time passes that we forget. My small son said, if you ever want to forget something, just tell my mom and she'll forget it for you! So take it from a forgetter, write it down!
My cookbooks are completely marked up with my changes…add a little this and don't add that. Use more of this…
Have fun when you bake your banana bread and don't be afraid to make every recipe more exciting. Try adding chocolate chips to your banana bread recipe sometime. See if anyone complains.
