Full Answer

An easy banana bread recipe to make from scratch requires only sugar, butter, eggs, bananas, milk and flour, along with baking powder, baking soda and ground cinnamon. In a bowl, mix together 8 tablespoons of softened, unsalted butter and 1 cup of sugar. Beat in 2 eggs one at a time. In separate bowls prepare the banana and flour mixture.

In one bowl, mash up 3 ripe bananas, and add 1 tablespoon of milk and 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon. In another bowl, mix together the dry ingredients: 2 cups of all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of baking powder and 1 teaspoon of baking soda. Mix the bananas into the sugar, then add the butter mixture. Add the flour mixture, but avoid over-mixing the batter. You only want to mix it until the flour is blended. Pour the batter into a greased loaf pan, and bake at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for 60 to 70 minutes. Cook upside down on a wire rack for 15 minutes before serving.
