Banana Bread Recipe

Prep Time30 mins
Cook Time1 hr
Total Time1 hr 30 mins
Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Servings: 10 - 12 servings


  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup shortening or try substituting vegetable oil
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • Butter for greasing the loaf pan
  • chocolate chips
  • walnuts optional


  • Start by preheating you oven to 350° F.
  • Combine the ingredients together in a mixing bowl (I use a Cuisinart) in the order listed above. Mix by hand (or by Cuisinart) until it forms a thoroughly blended batter.
  • Transfer the batter into a greased loaf or bread pan.
  • Bake until done, usually about one hour.
    A good way to tell if the bread is done is to stick it with a toothpick. If nothing sticks to the toothpick, it is done.


Simple and delicious.
