Looking for a banana bread recipe? This banana bread recipe is absolutely delicious. This is a recipe for a moist and yummy banana bread that is so easy to make and with loads of flavor.

According to Emily Stephens, the writer of MyGreatRecipes.com, “Banana bread became widely popular with the invention of rising agents like baking powder and baking soda in the 1930s. Before that, housewives used pearlash or potassium carbonate.”

Banana bread is a kind of “quick bread” or bread that contains no yeast but does contain baking powder. But, cooking experts claim that it is more cake than bread. This is because it contains quite a lot of sugar. They believe that it is called bread because it’s cut into slices and served with butter, unlike traditional cakes that are cut in wedges and usually richly frosted.”

Although good on its own, you can jazz up this dish. You can substitute brown sugar with the same amount of coconut sugar or granulated sugar. Liquid sweeteners aren’t great for this recipe. You can use unsweetened applesauce in the absence of sour cream. Raisins, walnuts, and pecans are great flavor additions too.

A great tip to prevent the top and sides from getting too brown in the baking process is to loosely cover the bread with aluminum foil after 30 minutes. Insert a clean toothpick— if it comes out clean then the bread is cooked.

This quick bread recipe pairs well with the best sweet wines. Here are our top wine suggestions:

  • Port
