Grandma's best Banana Bread recipe is the easiest, tastiest, most fool-proof banana bread recipe ever. 
Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time50 mins
Total Time1 hr
Servings: 2 loaves


  • 1/2 Cup Butter 1 Stick
  • 2 Cups Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Cup Milk
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 3 Cups Flour
  • 3 Bananas Mashed
  • 1 Cup Nuts Chopped (Optional)


  • Cream butter. Add sugar, eggs, milk, vanilla. Add dry ingredients. Add bananas. Mix well. Add nuts at the end (optional).
    Bake in 2 full-sized bread pans that are well-greased.  Bake for 45 minutes - 1 hour at 350, or until the middle is no longer gooey. 
    I like to sprinkle extra sugar on the piping hot bread as soon as it comes out of the oven. Gives a nice, sweet little surprise!
