  • 1/2 Cup Butter Melted (I always use salted butter and omit extra salt in recipes)
  • 2/3 Cup Brown Sugar Light or Dark Brown will do
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Bananas Mashed up (the riper, the better)
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 3/4 Cup Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/3 Cup Brown Sugar For the topping!


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, whisk melted butter and 2/3 cup brown sugar until well combined.
  • Add eggs, mashed bananas, and vanilla and whisk until blended in well.
  • In a separate bowl, combine flour and baking soda.
  • Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients.
  • Stir batter well so that no streaks of flour remain.
  • Grease 9x9 baking pan and add batter to pan.
  • Smooth into an even layer then sprinkle the top with the remaining brown sugar.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes. The bread is done when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Let cool.
  • Enjoy!
