When you’re looking for easy, breezy comfort food recipe ideas, nothing fits the bill quite like banana bread. It’s just that perfect loaf of delightful cake goodness that fills your home with an irresistible aroma. It soothes your soul with a dose of nostalgia.
The Banana Bread Recipe below is a classic, what we like to call a “dump” recipe. Because most of the ingredients are just dumped into one bowl and stirred together. Not many banana bread recipes can claim that.
This is one of the very best barefoot contessa banana bread recipes you will ever come across. It has been a family favourite for decades and is always a go-to when we have bananas that need to be used up.
The recipe comes from Ina Garten‘s book, Barefoot in Paris. The flavours are incredible, and her instructions are always easy to follow and never fail us.
