Regular visitors to this site will notice I've added quite a few Banana Bread recipes lately. I bought a bunch of bananas and didn't want them to go bad so what's a guy gonna do? Make a Butterscotch Banana Bread of course!
I'm not going to lie. I think this is my favorite banana bread recipe. This recipe is so good, it was all gone only a few hours after it came out of the oven!
While this recipe can easily be confused with my Caramel Banana Bread recipe, this one has a slightly different flavor and consistency. I would suggest making both of them and decide for yourself which one is your favorite.
I have so many Banana Bead recipes to offer but I think you really need to try my Buttermilk Banana Bread. One of my personal favorites!
🍌 How to pick the right Bananas
The best bananas for banana bread are when they are overripe, not yellow but black. Or they're at least streaked with black/brown. The darker the better.
If you can't find overripe bananas, you can speed up the process by putting the bananas in a paper bag along with an apple and loosely fold down the top. The bananas should ripen in just a day or two using this method.
