Ina Garten's Banana Bread Recipe

Ina Garten's Banana Bread Recipe

We're always looking for ways we can be less wasteful so when we saw a set of bananas that needed to go, we knew exactly what to do with them - make Ina's Banana Bread!

This recipe took about 10 minutes to assemble and an hour to bake - it's perfectly easy for anyone, no matter how much experience you have in the kitchen. If you're a newbie, this would impress anyone at the office for the holidays!

We subbed out the buttermilk for sour cream because well, we didn't plan ahead and didn't have buttermilk on hand - but it worked perfectly! We also tripled the vanilla amount because we're a HUGE vanilla family - it wasn't overpowering, it ended up being the perfect flavor. If you love a little more vanilla, try adding an additional 1 or 2 teaspoons - you won't be disappointed.

My family can’t eat nuts. Any idea what modifications I may need to make if I leave out the pecans? More flour?

The top line naming the 1/3 cup melted butter did not come out on my printed page. Could have been the error of my printer, but worth checking out. Great recipe.
