Step 2: Get All the Ingredients Together

For this recipe I use:

  • 3 bananas (can be old bananas)
  • 1,5 cup of flour
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 0,5 cup of oil or butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt

Optional I use:

  • Coconut shreds
  • Walnuts

Step 3: Mix the Dry Ingredients.

Preheat your oven to 350f or 180c.

Add all the dry ingredients together and give it a whisk.

  • 1,5 cup of flour
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt

Step 4: Mix the Other Ingredients

Now add the other ingredients and mix it again until a smooth paste.

  • 0,5 cup of oil or butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 bananas

The bananas can be old bananas, the ones that are almost going off.
Instead of throwing them away you can bake this yummy cake.

Step 5: Coconut and Walnut

To make the bread extra yummy I added walnuts and coconut shreds.
It's really a good combination with the banana bread. But if you don't have the nuts or the coconut shreds, you can also skip this step.

I add like 80% to the mixture and save the other part to put later on top of the cake.

Step 6: Pour the Mixture Into the Baking Tray

Now add the mixture into the baking tray, add the other nuts on top.
And bake for about 50 minutes to 1 hour. Depending on the heat of your oven.

Keep an eye on it, so the cake won't burn.

Step 7: Finished

Enjoy your Banana bread
