3Bananas(ripe & large sized) - 345 grams - Use 1 1/2 cups of mashed bananas to be exact.
1/2CupVegetable Oil- 115 milliliters- Use a neutral tasting vegetable oil such as corn or canola
2Eggs(large) - 114 grams - Large eggs (not extra large or jumbo eggs).
1CupWhite Granulated Sugar- 200 grams
2CupsAll Purpose Flour- 240 grams
1TeaspoonVanilla Extract- 5 milliliters
1TeaspoonBaking Soda- 5 grams
1TeaspoonBaking Powder- 4 grams
1/2TeaspoonSalt- 3 grams
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Mash bananas with a fork.
Lightly beat eggs.
Mix bananas, vegetable oil, eggs and sugar together in a large mixing bowl. Stir until completely mixed.
Mix in the remaining ingredients. Stir until the batter is fully mixed. FYI - I prefer to use a large spoon to mix the batter. An electric mixer can overmix the batter and this can lead to gummy & rubbery banana breads.
Optional - If you want to enhance this "basic" no butter banana bread, you can stir in a cup of your family's favorite dessert ingredient (i.e. chocolate chips or chopped walnuts) after you have mixed the batter.
Pour the finished batter into a nonstick bread pan. Smooth out the top of the batter within the bread pan.
Bake in the oven at 325 F 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. FYI - Do not skip this step as the "cool down" completes the baking process.
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.
