What is Banana Bread?

Banana bread becomes a popular dessert in America starting in the early 20th century. Thanks to the development of refrigeration, Americans were able to have bananas readily accessible. In addition to being a popular breakfast item, bananas quickly became a popular ingredient for desserts.

In addition to bread, bananas were also used for puddings and cakes. When the Great Depression happened, people were desperate to come up with new ways to use up all their food to avoid any wasting. People quickly learned that over ripped bananas were great for making bread.

Step By Step Instructions

Step One: Preheat the Oven and Grease the Pan

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and grease the pan with cooking spray.

Step Two: Cream the Sugar and Shortening

Using an electric mixer, cream the brown sugar and shortening, or butter, together for five minutes. If using shortening, the mixture will not be smooth.

Step Three: Combine the Dry Ingredients

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add the cinnamon and nutmeg in if desired.

Step Four: Add the Dry Ingredients and Banana

Mash up the banana thoroughly. Alternate adding the mashed banana and dry ingredients to the creamed mixture. Beat after every addition.

Mix in chocolate chips or chopped nuts if desired. The batter will be thick.

Step Five: Bake the Eggless Banana Bread

Carefully add the banana bread mixture to the greased baking pan. Bake for 40-45 minutes, checking with a toothpick until it comes out clean. Allow the bread to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before moving it onto a wire rack.

Unfortunately, banana bread can dry out easily. For this recipe, check the bread at 40 minutes with a toothpick to see if it is done. If the toothpick comes out clean, the bread is done. If there are lots of crumbs on the toothpick, continue baking for up to five more minutes, checking periodically to see if it is done.

Tips and Tricks

When making banana bread, you will want to use overly ripe bananas. Those that have lots of brown spots are ideal for baking. When a banana develops more spots it gains a sweeter taste and will give your desserts a stronger banana flavor.

If you don’t have any overripe bananas, you could put some in a brown paper bag for a few days or use the oven method. With the oven method, bake unpeeled bananas for 15-20 minutes at 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Allow them to cool before peeling and then add them to your bread mix.

If you don’t have all-purpose flour, you can also use whole wheat flour or even cake flour. Be sure to note that whole wheat flour will make a denser bread and cake flour will make a lighter bread.

If you don’t want to use brown sugar, you can use granulated sugar instead. However, brown sugar does give it more of a molasses flavor in addition to making it darker in color.

Be sure not to over mix the batter before baking it. When you over mix, the batter will develop air pockets that will affect the texture. A batter that has been over mixed will result in a tough bread, unlike the moist, tender bread loved by many.

If it turns out dry, you can add a layer of simple syrup to the top. Simple syrup is made from one part water and one part sugar. A thin coating on top will provide your bread with moisture and help prevent it from drying out any more.
