I might be biased but my Mom’s Banana Bread is probably one of my favorites. There are so many ways to make banana bread but this one brings me back to my childhood. Which is probably why I like it so much.
I will admit that I made one small change to her original recipe. This small change just made it a little moister. But please don't tell her! You know how Mom's can get sometimes.
I also can't help but think of where Banana Bread comes from. So I looked it up and this is what I found. Check out this interesting article.
🍌 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.
