Best-Ever Banana Bread


  1. 1 cup butter 250 mL
  2. 2 cups granulated sugar 500 mL
  3. 2 1⁄2 cups mashed ripe bananas (about 5) 625 mL
  4. 4 eggs, well beaten
  5. 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour 625 mL
  6. 2 tsp baking soda 10 mL
  7. 1 tsp salt 5 mL
  8. 1 tsp ground nutmeg 5 mL
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add bananas and eggs and beat until well mixed.
  3. Mix dry ingredients and blend with banana mixture, but do not over-mix. Pour into two lightly greased loaf pans or a 10-inch (25 cm) Bundt pan.
  4. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes; test for doneness (toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean) and cool on rack for 10 minutes before removing from pans. Freezes beautifully.
