How Do You Make Banana Bread

When I think of Homemade Banana Bread I think of the sweet hearty banana flavor, a brown toasty crust and a tender cake-like interior. To achieve that result, this recipe perfectly combines wholesome simple ingredients like sweet cinnamon, milk, ripe bananas, and a not so common ingredient: hearty oats.

The rolled oats soak up all the moisture and make for a soft and moist banana bread. This recipe contains eggs, but if you don’t eat eggs you can use my egg substitute chart for baking. Once you combine your wet and dry ingredients, make sure you only fold them together so you don’t over mix the batter and make it tough.

Making a Really Moist Banana Bread

In addition to adding oats to this recipe, flavorless oil like vegetable oil helps ensure you’ll get a really moist result. And here’s another secret trick: once you bake your banana bread, and you see a lovely golden brown color on top, take your bread out of the oven and cover it with aluminum foil while it’s still warm. Covering the bread with foil will steam the cake to make it extra soft and delicious, giving you a sticky top like you’d find in a gingerbread.

    The banana bread’s flavor was delicious, especially liked the oats. When I tried to cut it a decent thickness it would crumble. I did not change the ingredients

    • Gemma Stafford on August 16, 2018 at 3:57 pm

      hum, it really shouldn’t have crumbled like that. Maybe was it too fresh when cut?

      Best,
      Gemma.

  2. Lexi on August 15, 2018 at 4:01 pm

    No Gemma I did not change the ingredients

      Hi Lexi,

      Gemma 🙂
