How to Make Moist Banana Bread

The secret to moist banana bread is blending the banana together with the lemon juice before you add the rest of your ingredients. Also, you do not want to bake your bread too long or it will become dry. Stick a knife in your bread to check it and be sure it comes out clean, but not over done. Another tip is to wrap the banana bread in foil or plastic wrap and then store it in an air tight container! 

Banana Bread Ingredients 

Here’s What You Need:

  • 5 Bananas
  • 4 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
  • 1 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 3 Eggs
  • 3/4 Cup Milk
  • 3/4 Cup Canola Oil
  • 3 1/2 Unbleached Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 3 Teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 Cup Pecans

Banana Bread Directions

Mix Bananas and Lemon Juice in a large Food Processor.

Add Eggs, Sugar, Milk, and Canola Oil and blend together.

After all of the “wet ingredients” are mixed well, blend in Unbleached Flour, Salt, Baking Soda, and Baking Powder.

Finally, blend in pecans (optional) to desired texture.

Spray your baking pans with baking spray so that the Banana Bread does not stick to your pans.

Fill Mini Loaf Pans 2/3 of the way full and bake on 350 degrees for 35 minutes (I like to use 2-Cup Mini Loaf Pans).

After the Banana Bread is finished baking, take the bread out of the pans and place them on a cooling rack until they are completely cool.

Here are some frequently asked questions about Banana Bread that I hope I can answer for you! 

Should I let Banana Bread Cool In the Pan? 

No. It is important to remove the banana bread from the pan almost as soon as you take it out of the oven. I would wait about 10 minutes for the bread to set and then remove it from the pans. This will help the banana bread to hold it’s moisture. What I do is I remove the bread from the oven and place it on a cookie sheet or oven range where the bottom of the pan can cool as well. Remove from pans and continue to cool before you store. 

Does Banana Bread Go Bad?

Banana Bread will not go bad if stored properly. It will last on the shelf for about 2 days, but you can refrigerate it for up to 1 week and freeze it for 6 months. I store mine in the refrigerator normally, however, if you are baking ahead for the holidays, you can always freeze it till you need it! 

How Do You Keep Banana Bread Moist? 

Wrap it in foil or plastic wrap and then store it in a plastic bag or an air tight container. This will help the bread to not lose moisture. 

Chopped Pecans

I included Chopped Pecans in my Banana Bread, but keep in mind that you can always leave these out if you are not a fan of nuts. Or, if you do not like pecans, you could always try walnuts! Sometimes I make a couple of loafs with nuts and a couple of loafs without nuts depending on who I’m baking it for. If you want to do this, just pour some of your batter into a couple of the mini loaf pans before you blend in the nuts.
