This banana bread is moist, flavorful, and easy to make. Perfect for breakfast, a snack, or dessert, it’s a great way to use up overripe bananas.


  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour


  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan.
  2. Prepare Bananas: In a mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas with a fork until smooth. Stir the melted butter into the mashed bananas.
  3. Mix Dry Ingredients: Mix in the baking soda and salt. Stir in the sugar, beaten egg, and vanilla extract. Mix in the flour.
  4. Pour Batter: Pour the batter into your prepared loaf pan.
  5. Bake: Bake for 60-65 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
