Ingredient for Banana Bread
Ripe Banana :
The sole need for creating banana bread is that the bananas are ripe. Its banana bread time when the skins start to develop freckles and the fruits are just a touch too mushy for enjoyable nibbling.
Vanilla Extract :
Vanilla's effect in sweet baked goods is similar to that of salt in savoury baked goods: it enhances all of the other flavours in the recipe. Cookies and pastries without it tend to taste flat and boring.
Some banana bread recipes use oil, but butter works best in this recipe. It also provides more flavor than using just oil. Unsalted Butter control the amount of salt that’s added.
Baking soda help this bread rise as it bakes.
All Purpose flour :
This gives the banana bread its structure. Just make sure to spoon and level your flour when measuring it to avoid having too much.
When it comes to banana bread, moisture is crucial, and the flour-to-banana
ratio is crucial. If you use too much flour, your bread will be dry.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.

I watch all your vlogs, you are rocking. Love you. I have a question for you.
Whenever I bake a cake, my cake turns out soft and moist, but it won't be spongy/fluffy instead it is sticky. Can you please tell me the reason and how to correct it? Thanks.
Aarthi, Thank You for posting this basic recipe. Meets all your points: simple & easy. I enjoyed making this banana bread. It turned out very nice. But, it is not the World’s Best Banana Bread - missed that one by a mile. Still, not bad at all! I’m searching for the World’s Best Banana Bread - I believe I have eaten it, but the baker refuses to share his recipe with me. This is not that recipe. But you submit excellent recipes. Keep up the good work. You’re a favorite of mine.
