  • Summary

    Who doesn’t love banana bread? This one is just sweet enough, with fabulous crunch if you add walnuts and coconut, as I always do. There’s no better solution for over-the-hill bananas, and the batter comes together in less than 10 minutes. I’ve been making this recipe — created by my late dear friend Sherry — for almost fifty years; it’s incredibly reliable.

    Ingredients

    • 1 stick butter, melted, plus softened butter for greasing
    • 2 cups flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 3 very ripe bananas, mashed with a fork until smooth
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
    • 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut (optional)
