This is seriously the best banana bread ever. It is perfectly moist, tender and full of banana flavor. The secret is melted butter and lots of mashed bananas!
The best banana bread ever. It’s a bold statement. I’m not afraid to admit that, but when you make a banana bread that disappears within minutes you’ll say the same thing too.
This banana bread has that effect—disappearing within minutes. The second it is ready to eat, everyone reaches for a slice and then goes back for more because it is simply the best they have every had.
So what qualifies this bread as the best? Well, I’ll tell you…
First of all, it is moist—no dry crumbly banana bread here. It is so moist that it almost melts on your tongue when bitten into.
Second of all, this banana bread is tender—like a pillow. It is so soft that every slice falls like a blanket when the bread is cut into.
Lastly, it is full of banana flavor—after all, it is banana bread. I say the browner the banana, the more flavor there is in the bread. I’ll go as far to say that you should use black bananas. That’s what I did and I have no regrets. That is where all the banana flavor comes from.
My favorite way to eat this banana bread is either right out of the oven OR toasted with a pad of butter melting into it. When banana bread is warm, it tastes even better if you ask me. The aroma overcomes the senses and sinks into your tastebuds with every bite.
