Mix in remaining ingredients (except the raisins). Stir until the batter is fully mixed.
Add the raisins after the batter has been completely mixed. Make sure the raisins are evenly spread throughout the batter.
Pour finished batter into a nonstick bread pan. Smooth out the top of the batter within the bread pan.
Optional (for decorative purposes) – Sprinkle some raisins on top of the batter before placing into the oven.
Bake in the oven for 65-70 minutes or until golden brown.
Take out of oven and let the banana bread cool down in the bread pan for 10 minutes. Do not remove the banana bread from the bread pan during this 10 minute cool down period. Use oven mitts as the bread pan will be very hot coming out of the oven.
After 10 minutes, remove the banana bread from the bread pan. Place the banana bread on a cooling rack in order to completely cool. This cool down may take 1-2 hours. Gently slide a silicon spatula between the banana bread and the bread pan walls if the banana bread is stuck in the pan.
