Super Amazing Fantastic Banana Bread

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • 11/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 1/3 cups mashed overripe bananas (about 4-5)
If you like nuts/are not allergic to them, you may add 1/2 cup of walnuts to the dry mixture before combining. Dredging the nuts in the mixture will help them to not sink to the bottom of the pan.

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan (or mini-loaf pans).
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar. Stir in eggs and mashed bananas, vanilla, and vinegar until well blended. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan (until about 2/3 full)
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 60 to 65 minutes (for 9x5; check at 45 for smaller loaf pans), until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.
Icing (Okay, so I know that this will sound really weird, but just trust me)

  • 1 Tbsp melted butter
  • water
  • powdered sugar

  • Combine butter with enough powdered sugar and water to make a thin-ish icing. Spread over warm banana bread.
Remember, if you have any questions, feel free to contact me! :)


  1. I don't have vinegar and don't want to buy it for one recipe. Any substitutes for it? (Or more recipes using vinegar?)

  2. You can use some lemon juice. It's not very much, so it won't really change the flavor. You can also just omit it. I would try lemon juice first, though.
