Did you know?? Bananas are so versatile and can be used in bread, cakes, porridge, and even stews. A banana can be eaten in all its stages of ripeness which makes it quite special.

In this recipe, we are introducing the banana in a classic original. Banana bread done right is sturdy with a light crumb and is nice for a treat in the morning with breakfast or in the evening with coffee or tea. I love the fact that people identify bananas as a fruit because of their seeds but it is neither a fruit nor a vegetable. When we consider bread we usually think of a yeasty dough or any kind of fermentation process that would encourage a rise in a dough mixture. Isn't it interesting that we have "bread" that has a more cake-like texture thus one of them being banana bread?

Tip: The riper the bananas, the sweeter the bread will be. If you like your banana bread on the less sweet side, use ripe bananas instead of overripe bananas.

Did you know that bananas are classified as berries? That's right, they are! Bananas are actually classified as an herb. The Banana plant is the largest herbaceous flowering plant. Bananas are believed to have originated in Malaysia and Indonesia. There is evidence that Bananas were grown in India as early as 500 BC.

Banana bread is a quick bread recipe, which means that it doesn't require any rising time. This makes it a great recipe for beginner bakers to try out. Banana bread is traditionally made with ripe or overripe bananas and is often studded with chocolate chips or nuts.

Banana Bread Recipe - Classic Original: A New Take on Banana Bread Recipe

Prep time 10 min

Rest time 20 -30 min (optional)

Bake time 60min

Serving: 10 Slices



2 Dark Brown Bananas

2 Eggs

½ Cup Unsalted Melted Butter

1 tsp White Vinegar

1 Cup Butter Milk

2 Tbsp Vegetable Oil

½ cup Dark Brown Sugar

½ cup of White Sugar

2 Cups All-purpose Flour

1tsp of Vanilla Extract

¼ Cinnamon Powder

1 tsp White Vinegar

1 Cup Butter Milk

2 Tbsp Vegetable Oil

Tsp Baking Soda

Tsp Baking Powder


Step 1: In a bowl mash up your banana with a fork or use a hand mixer.

Step 2: Add your White and Brown Sugar, Eggs and Vanilla extract into the same bowl with your bananas and mix until well incorporated and smooth.

Step 3: Sift your flour, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon into the mixture and while stirring add in your buttermilk slowly until well incorporated.

Step 4: once you have completed step 3 add the melted butter and oil mix well and then last but no least add the vinegar.

Step 5: You can let your batter rest for 15- 20min or use it right away.

 Tip: Resting your batter allow the vinegar to interact with baking soda and will allow for a flufflier and better crumb for your banana bread.



Step 6: Pour your batter into a standard loaf pan (8-1/2 x 4-1/2 x 2-1/2 inches) and bake for 60mins

Tip: bake your banana bread on the second last rack of the oven for the first 30 mins. Then for  the last 30 min on the middle rack for even colour on your bread.

Step 7: Take a toothpick and place in the center of the Banana Bread and when it comes out with a little crumble stuck to it that means that it is just right and not overdone. At this time the take out the bread out of the oven let it rest for 30mins until cooled.


Serve with peanut butter, cream cheese or Nutella or even peanut butter and Nutella combined. These are my favourite spreads to use on my banana bread.


Enjoy your life with this version of Banana Bread and remember Life's A Batch Make Something From It.
