My younger daughter, Yanah, loves banana bread, and we make it all the times. Today, we decided to have it for our dessert with some ice-cream of course. Any leftover will be her breakfast tomorrow morning.
If you have never made banana bread, I am sharing the best recipe ever with you. I hope you enjoy it and remember to share your thoughts with me.
Marjie’s Banana Bread
3 ripe bananas
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
2 large eggs
1/3 cup sliced almonds
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger powder
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 pinch of salt
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Cream the sugar and butter in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
In a bowl mash the bananas with a fork. Mix in the milk and cinnamon. In another bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Add the banana mixture to the creamed mixture and stir until combined. Add dry ingredients, mixing just until flour disappears.
Add the almonds last
Pour batter into prepared pan and bake 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Set aside to cool on a rack for 15 minutes. Remove bread from pan, invert onto rack and cool completely before slicing.
I’ve never tried marjies, but I’m intrigued for sure. I’m going to have to try your recipe soon.
I hope you enjoyed it, Ritu!

I miss making and eating banana bread. I suffer from allergies from bananas since college.
Stay away from them, Aiisasami, allergic reaction is pretty serious and can even be fatal.
Ooh, this looks delicious! I’ve never made banana bread but I’m going to give it a go as I think my family would love it.
I am sure they will enjoy you cooking it for them.
It has been years since I’ve baked banana bread! I must try your recipe soon!

We love banana bread here! Although I put a lot of cinnamon in it, but never tried it with ginger and nutmeg before. I also don’t know why I never thought about having it with ice cream, but that sounds amazing!
Ice cream makes everything better, Stephanie!

I don’t love bananas but I wouldn’t mind them in bread! The nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger must make it suoper yummy. And I love that it has almonds too.
I enjoy adding spices in my recipe, Dalene!
