Spiced Banana Bread Recipe

spiced banana bread recipe
So I had a bunch of over ripe bananas this morning and thought I would bake us a tasty treat for tomorrow morning! I’ve been in a banana bread rut though. I usually make the stand by classic recipe or chocolate chip banana muffins. These are both great, but I searched for different recipes online and came across this one from allrecipes.com! Seriously…it rocks! I looove spiced cake or muffins so this is right up my alley.

2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
4 very ripe bananas
2 eggs 1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 cup melted butter 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour two 8×3 inch loaf pans. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and baking soda; set aside.
Mash the bananas, eggs, sugar, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, and cloves together in a large bowl with a fork until well combined. Stir in the melted butter and vanilla extract, then fold in the flour mixture until a batter forms and no dry lumps remain. Pour into the prepared loaf pans.
Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then remove from the pan, and allow to cool completely on a wire rack.

The only thing I did different was add some walnuts..cause that’s how we like banana bread 🙂


Happy Thanksgiving…Have a most wonderful holiday tomorrow!
