Quick Banana Bread


2 Cups flour

1 t-spoon baking powder

½ t-spoon baking soda

½ t-spoon ground cinnamon (optional)

¾ cup brown sugar (light or dark will be fine)

¾ cup white sugar

4 eggs at room temperature (cold eggs can be put in a bowl of tap water to bring them to room temperature)

1 and ¼ cup vegetable oil

1 t-spoon vanilla

¼ cup milk at room temperature

1 cup mashed bananas (overly ripe bananas are perfect for this recipe)

½ cup walnut chunks (optional)


Preheat the oven to 180-C or 350-F. Spray a bundt pan with a bake release spray. If you do not have the bake release spray, put a few drops of oil in the bundt pan. Spread the oil around with a tissue, and sprinkle flour all over the oiled pan (i.e greasing and flouring the pan). Additionally, you can use any shape pan as long as the batter fits.

  • Dry mixture: Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon. Set aside.
  • Wet mixture: In a bowl, mix sugar, eggs, and oil at low speed
  • Add the dry mixture to wet mixture. Mix for 15-20 seconds at low speed
  • Add milk and vanilla, mix for 10 seconds
  • Add mashed bananas. Mix for 10-15 seconds or mix by spoon
  • Add walnut chunks if you would like, mix by spoon

Pour the batter in the pan, and bake for about 55 minutes to an hour. Check with a toothpick to make sure the cake is done.
