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.

The banana bread recipe that we have here will enable you to make a loaf of moist banana bread. Aside from the good taste, this recipe also costs low. This can be a potential income source for our business-minded people.

    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!

    i made this recipe but i added more banana, instead of 1 cup i used about 1.5 cups (about half a kilo, medium sized lacatan), the result is great, mas moist yung bread. may nag-oorder na sa akin ngayon.

  7. carol says:

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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 !

  13. Sa middle rack ko nilalagay glace.

    Hi!!ang galing2 mo mgturo..sobra detelyado thats y if im inspired to panlasang pinoy lngko nano2od..keep up d good work…god bless and more power!!

  15. 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!

  16. Noted leahgrace. Please expect it soon.
