Best Ever Banana Bread


This is my best ever banana bread recipe. It really is the best I have ever tasted! It's very moist and it freezes well. I also bake this in 3 small loaf pans however you may need to shorten the baking time.

1 9x5-inch loaf


  • 2 large eggs, beaten

  • cup buttermilk

  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 ½ cups white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan.

  2. Mix eggs, bananas, oil, and buttermilk together in a large bowl until well combined.

  3. Sift flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt into a separate large bowl. Stir flour mixture into the banana mixture until combined. Gently fold in pecans; pour batter into the prepared loaf pan.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 1 hour and 20 minutes.
