  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 o 3 very ripe mashed bananas
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips or chopped walnuts


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper.
  • Combine flour, baking powder, soda, and salt and sift together.
  • In a separate, slightly larger bowl cream the butter until light and fluffy. Add sugar to the butter and blend with mixer until well blended and smooth.
  • Beat eggs in a small bowl or cup and add to the butter mixture. Mix until well blended.
  • Mash the ripened bananas and then fold into the egg and sugar mixture and mix with a fork or whisk until well blended. You don't want to over mix this part. 
  • Fold flour mixture into the wet mixture in four separate portions and mix well after each addition.
  • Once blended well you can turn the ingredients into parchment paper-lined loaf pan.
  • Bake for about 50 minutes or until it is golden brown. You should be able to insert a fork or toothpick and it remains dry. Once cooled slightly you can lift the loaf right out of loaf pan with parchment paper and place on a rack to cool. Once cooled, wrap tightly with plastic or foil to keep fresh and moist.
