Notes

  • Be sure your bananas are extra ripe---and very black. This ensures the sugar content it just right.
  • This is a self rising flour banana bread. You cannot substitute all purpose flour in and have the same results.
  • Prep your 9 x 5 inch bread pan by greasing or spraying with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Do not overcook---it leads to a dry texture. Watch the bread toward the end of the recommended cooking time. Some ovens cook faster or slower. 
  • Test the bread with a toothpick for doneness. If it comes out clean, remove the bread from the oven. 
  • Have leftover banana bread? Try making biscotti! It's easy and delicious.
