Bestest Banana Bread

Author Notes: This is my favorite thing to bake, always. It improves with a day or two of resting, but I won't judge you if you take a warm slice or five.Brette Warshaw

Makes 1 loaf

  • 4 very ripe bananas (if frozen, defrost in the microwave)
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 egg, at room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 to 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  1. Mash your bananas in a big bowl -- and if they're frozen and defrosted, snip off the end and pour all the liquids and solids out of the skin.
  2. Add your butter, egg, vanilla, and sugar to the mashed bananas. Mix well.
  3. In another bowl, mix your flour, salt, cinnamon, and baking soda. Fold into your wet ingredients.
  4. Fold the yogurt into the batter.
  5. Butter a loaf pan. Pour in your batter. Bake at 325°F for 45 to 50 minutes, keeping an eye on it so that it doesn't overbake. (By the way, it's delicious a tad underbaked.)
