Author's Notes

The best bananas to use for banana bread are those that are overripe. The yellow peels should be at least half browned, and squishy and browning inside.

Be sure to turn the banana bread out from the pan shortly after removing it from the oven. This is because the moisture inside the loaf of bread and the condensation as it cools will build up and can soften the banana bread crust.

To store ripe bananas, put unpeeled bananas into a plastic bag and freeze until you have enough for baking. You can also peel and mash ripe bananas and add 1 tsp of lemon juice per banana and freeze them in an airtight container. This can keep for 3 months in the freezer.

This banana bread can be frozen as well. Place into a plastic bag and put in the freezer. You can freeze the whole loaf or in slices. Simply thaw to room temperature when needed.

First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Place a wire rack in the center of the oven.
step 2
Prepare a loaf pan. Spray the bottom and sides of the loaf pan with a non-stick vegetable spray or brush with melted butter. Line the bottom of the loaf pan with a baking sheet or parchment paper.

Melt Butter (1/2 cup) in a pan and set aside to cool.
step 4
Crack Farmhouse Eggs® Large Brown Eggs (2) in a bowl and lightly beat with a fork.
step 5
Next, peel Bananas (3). Place in a medium-size mixing bowl and mash with a fork. Add in beaten eggs, melted butter, and Vanilla Extract (1 tsp). Mix well and set aside.

Prepare the dry ingredients. Toast Walnut (1 cup) over low heat till fragrant. Set aside to cool and coarsely chopped them.
step 7
In a large mixing bowl, add the All-Purpose Flour (1 3/4 cups), Granulated Sugar (3/4 cup), Salt (1/4 tsp), Baking Powder (1 tsp), Baking Soda (1/4 tsp), and Ground Cinnamon (1 tsp). Whisk together till well combined.
step 8
Stir in the chopped walnuts and mix well.

When done preparing the dry and wet ingredients, pour the wet banana mixture into the dry flour mixture. Using a spatula, gently fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined. Do not overmix.
