It seems most everyone has a banana bread secret to keeping it moist.
What's yours?

Sour cream or vanilla yogurt. I sometimes use applesauce in place of some of the oil.

1/2 cup of Raisins, and 3/4 cup of vegetable oil instead of marg/butter.

the ladies I work with are always asking me to bake and bring it in, and it's so moist, it doesnt need butter or anything on it.

More bananas than the recipe calls for and when it is still slightly warm, wrap the loaf in in foil to seal in the moisture.

no secret here

Just overly ripe bananas .. i mean the black narly looking ones... mushed up frozen .. then brought out when its time to make banana bread.

I have yet to have non-moist banana bread.


Also because the bananas are soooo ripe they have converted a lot to sugar so i half the sugar in the recipe i use.

3 overly ripe bananas. :ban::ban::ban: That's my secret. I have yet to bake one that is not moist. My 2 boys and hubby (ok, me as well) eat that whole thing in about an half a day.

Yep, over ripe bananas it is, black actually! :eek:

I think I posted a recipe some time or other. I call it the Banana Man's wife's recipe, because our neighbor was a delivery man (fruits and vegetables) and would bring home the 'bruised' fruit. His wife shared with my Mom and also shared her recipe for Banana Bread. BEST I have ever tasted. :D

~I also use extra banana and applesauce in place of some of the oil. Personally, I use bananas that are speckled, not black. The black ones taste fermented to me. I also bake in a glass pan.~

I also prefer speckled vs. black bananas. I use peanut butter for half the oil too. Yum! Throw in a handful of milk chocolate chips too!

My Banana Bread Recipe

1/4 cup margarine

3 or 4 large ripe bananas (I often freeze my bananas once they get ripe)

  1. Preheat oven to 350'F
  2. Mix margarine with sugar & eggs.
  3. Mix flour, salt and baking soda together & add to sugar mixture.
  4. Add mashed bananas.
  5. Pour into a greased and floured 9x5" loaf pan.
  6. Bake for 60 - 60 min. (I continue baking until I can stick a sharp knife in and it comes out clear).
