What's Fresh with Beth Irons: Spiced Banana Bread

Spiced Banana Bread


2 cups flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

4 very ripe bananas

2 eggs

1 cup sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

1/2 cup melted butter

1 teaspoon vanilla extract (may substitute another extract like maple if desired)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour two 8×3 inch loaf pans.

Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and baking soda; set aside.

Mash the bananas, eggs, sugar, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, and cloves together in a large bowl with a fork until well combined.

Stir in the melted butter and vanilla extract.

Fold in the flour mixture until a batter forms and no dry lumps remain.

Pour into the prepared loaf pans.

Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes.

Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then remove from the pan, and allow to cool completely on a wire rack.
