One of the nicest things about a banana bread recipe is that it is typically something simple to make. Everyone loves a good banana bread recipe, and we can help you learn how to make a simple moist banana bread.
For starters, one of the keys to a good banana bread recipe is the bananas themselves. Many people think that to make a proper banana bread recipe, you have to have nearly-green bananas. On the contrary, the bananas you want to use for almost any banana bread recipe should be close to overripe. The longer they ripen, the sweeter bananas become.
If your bananas on the counter are getting a little riper than you would like them for eating out-of-hand, they are probably just right for baking a banana bread recipe. If you aren't planning on whipping up a moist banana bread recipe, it's fine to store the bananas in the freezer. Just let them thaw to room temperature before you begin baking.
Once you've got your ripe bananas, it's time for some wonderful banana bread recipes. One easy choice for a simple moist banana bread is this Easy Banana Bread in a Bread Machine. Bread machine recipes are nice and easy — you pretty much plop in your ingredients, press a button, and come back to delicious bread a while later. This banana bread recipe for bread machine is no exception — it's easy, moist, and delicious! Use applesauce in place of butter to reduce the fat content...either way, it tastes great!
