Banana Bread Recipe

Banana bread is a type of bread that uses yellow bananas as the main ingredient. Unlike traditional breads, this sweet bread — that is sometimes referred to as banana cake — uses baking soda as leavening agent, instead of yeast. This Banana Bread Recipe will give you a nice tasting moist bread that you will surely like.

I personally love this banana bread recipe because this is the most successful experiment that I did out of more than 20 tries. You read it right, formulating the best banana bread recipe has been an obsession for me. It all started when I first tried this delicious pastry when I was a kid. Finally, it is my pleasure to share this to everyone.

  9. BEST banana bread recipe I’ve ever tried and its so simple too. I substituted the flour for oatmeal I blended up to make the same consistency and texture of flour (trying to stay away from bad carbs) and it still ended up deliciously moist and flavorful. My children, husband and even some of our neighbors who I gave a taste to, loved it! Making it again this weekend, but this time I’m going to add chopped walnuts and chocolate chips for extra crunch and yummy goodness. Thanks for this!

  10. hi, i just wanna ask if it’s ok i use butter instesad of oil?….thank’s:)

    Thank you and more power…

    This is the best Banana Bread recipe I’ve found so far. The other tend to put too much flour and not enough sugar. The result is a dense bread which is not very sweet, this one is more like a cake and is sweet. I use less sugar, about 3/4 cup, instead of 1 full cup and it still turns out very good.

  16. fatrisa says:

    Kabayan, thanks a lot sa recipe mo …. first time to make it and it was perfect … easy to make and easy on the pocket … took only a short time to prepare and bake it, though i used turbo broiler only … thanks a lot again kabayan, keep up the good works and more power …

  22. hi kuya,

    im one of your fan and i tried a lot from your recipe’s. I just want to ask if I can post on my blog some of your recipe’s, its credited on your site po…

  23. Hi Kuya Vanjo,

    I tried your banana bread last night. I made 1 1/2 of the recipe kasi I had extra half cup of mashed banana (about 4 overripe lacatans) so, instead of putting it all I adjusted the whole recipe. Then I added half cup of chopped walnuts. I used round pan and baked it for an hour and 10 minutes at 175C.

    Turned out perfect! With some crunch on the outside and moist in the inside…just the way I wanted my banana bread!

    Thanks for sharing the recipe…will try your carrot cake next time. Cheers!

    Hi kuya! by the way im shirell im here now in UAE. I would like to say thank you to your very good site. Honestly I hate cooking and baking but when i watched your cooking demo, I really appreciate it, its a big help to me and it’s easier to learn more dishes most especially our own foods.. keep on doing kuya, your helping more people to learned more on cooking.

  25. Hi kuya.What kind of banana ba that your using?yung saging na nilalaga ba?Thanks po.

  26. I would cut the sugar to maybe 1/4 or half a cup, you do not want it too sweet.

  27. senorita says:

    so can i use powder instead of soda for making banana cake? tnx poh!

    • You can use baking powder instead of baking soda in making banana cake or bread – generally.

      “What will be the effect if I use baking powder instead of baking soda in this recipe?”

      As Ive’d mentioned, there are differences in terms of application. If you use baking powder, please don’t expect to produce the same result. This specific recipe requires baking soda. If baking powder is used, we need to completely change the measurements of the other ingredients. I’ll try to do an experiment or probably do another banana bread using baking soda so that you can follow the precise measurements.

  28. senorita says:

    hey poh!

    can i just ask is baking soda and powder the same? tnx kuya!

    • Senorita, they are both leavening agents. This means that they cause baked goods to rise by producing carbon dioxide. When it comes to recipe application, they should be considered as two different ingredients. I’ll try to whip-up a post on this so that I may elaborate further.

  29. I have tried out this recipe today. The smell coming from the oven was so tempting that I hardly noticed my mom, dad and husband flocking to the kitchen with all eyes on it. I told them to wait until the baked goods cool down before they try but nobody listened –they attacked it !!! I guess that means my experiment was a success :-) Thank God and thanks Chef Vanj coz my baking skills are close to zero !

  30. Sa middle rack ko nilalagay glace.

  31. Thanks you judith. Glad that you are enjoying our features.

  32. Hi Roy. Thanks for the comment. The number of pieces really depends on the type and size of the banana that you are using. I placed “1 cup” to make sure that we are following the standard size. In my case, just used one banana to be able to fill the cup. As for the oil, I used vegetable oil. Vanilla essence and extract are the same. Hope that I answered your questions. Have a great day!

  33. Noted leahgrace. Please expect it soon.
