1 9x5-inch loaf


  • 4 ripe bananas, cut into chunks

  • 1 ¼ cups light brown sugar

  • ½ cup butter, softened

  • 1 jumbo egg

  • ¼ cup whole milk

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan.

  2. Place bananas into a large resealable plastic bag; seal the bag and smoosh bananas with your fingers until well mashed. Set aside.

  3. Mix together brown sugar and butter in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes. Cut a corner from the plastic bag; squeeze mashed bananas into brown sugar mixture in the bowl. Add egg, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla; beat on medium speed until well combined. Mix in flour, baking powder, baking soda, and kosher salt on low speed just until smooth, about 1 minute. Spread into the prepared loaf pan.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned on top and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 40 minutes.
