My love of the spotty banana, unfortunately, conflicts with one of my other loves — banana bread. I also add almond butter for extra protein, and coconut sugar for lower glycemic index…just a few twists that don’t change the taste much if at all. I only had 2 very ripe bananas to use and this bread was not lacking for banana flavor. I’ve tried so many different recipes, to the point where I was losing all hope for THAT one recipe….this is IT!!!!

My boyfriend (transplanted to NY from Georgia) has this amazing southern tiramusu recipe with vanilla wafers, whipped cream, and bananas cooked in bourbon and brown sugar– I think your recipe is the bread version of that. You would never do that. This is my all-time, favorite banana bread recipe. Absolutely delicious and was gone in two days. And I have failed in so many banana bread recipes because of this. This recipe has never failed me, and seems to taste better every time. The 1st time it came out like a dream. I had the same problem – followed the recipe to a T, and used a 9×5 inch loaf pan. cloves? While they’re green, there’s no flavour (at least, not a yummy ripe banana flavour). I’m thinking either my oven isn’t quite accurate temperature wise, or that I need to add a squich more GF flour next time. Thank you for such lovely recipes. i did nothing by hand. I feel like cocoa powder is one of the worst things to measure by volume. Thank you Deb! Hope it baked up just fine. You posted this recipe in 2006 and people are still raving about it in 2015. This bread has a great rise and good browning. Amazingly moist and the taste was out of this world! One note is that I only had to bake mine for 30-35 minutes and it was completely cooked… I’m pretty sure I used the same size pan so not sure what happened but it’s good to check the baking time in between! However, as a backyard banana grower with a freezer full of little 3-4″ very ripe fruits, I wish recipes included either a weight or volume measure for the bananas! I made this on Wednesday night at midnight… those black bananas were staring me in the face. So tragic! no regrets. If it looks incredibly runny, try adding an extra Tb of flour.

Wowsers! Recently, however, I was diagnosed with celiac disease (join the club, eh?)

And that one tablespoon of bourbon? I also used spiced rum for the bourbon (it’s the closest I ever have on hand), and I was out of brown sugar so I used 1/2 C of white sugar with 1/4 C of pure maple syrup. If you’re planning to make banana bread, definitely plan in advance because you need to have these overly ripened bananas to make good banana bread (but that’s banana bread basics, 101).

Thanks for the recipe! it was gone before I got a second slice! Made exactly as written, baked for 55 min (toothpick came out clean at that time). But that’s user error, not the recipe. One time I was out of brown sugar so I used Trader Joe’s organic sugar with great results. It’s almost 3:00 AM now and the house smells like heaven. When my bananas get like this I like to freeze them! I have one question. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

I didn’t have any Jack Daniels, so I used Jim Beam. sugar: used slightly over 1/2C sugar instead of 3/4C bourbon in french toast, whiskey in burgers, wine in stew, the delicious list goes on and on!) Alterations: I cut the bananas into a small saucepan and mashed them over med-low heat. Thank you Deb, your recipes are amazing! Added 1/3c chopped walnuts and 1/3c 60% cacao chips. They are ridiculously easy, and ridiculously yummy! Thanks for a great adaptation to a wonderful recipe. I baked in glass at 325F and it took 70-75 minutes for the center to set but the outside was very well-browned and delicious. The last year or so, my bread has suddenly always come out of the oven with a denseness at the bottom, about a half centimeter or so. Thank you! Any recommendations?

I had been wanting to try some new banana bread recipes out, and right before I started one from some foreign website I figured I would scroll through the smitten kitchen banana section… I couldn’t be happier that I did.

I got halfway through the recipe (already divided the batter) and realized I forgot the bananas. I made it with half whole wheat flour, and drizzled a chocolate ganache over the top. Excellent recipe! S!uggest lining the bottom of the pan with wax paper – my loaf didn’t come out in one piece, despite waiting 10 minutes and using a knife on the edges.
