Here are some simple tricks to making the best banana bread ever. If you have more questions please leave a comment below and we will do our best to answer them!
How do you keep Banana Bread moist?
Keep your bread wrapped in plastic wrap, tin foil, or store in an airtight container to keep it from drying out. This can also extend the life of your banana bread. Another quick tip is to store it in the fridge to make it last up to a week.
Why is my Banana Bread Dry?
Make sure you use butter instead of oil in you banana bread! If you use oil it emulsifies and coats the flour which prevents it from absorbing to much water which results in dry banana bread.
How do you know when Banana Bread is done?
You want to begin testing your banana bread about 10 minutes before you think it will be done. Insert a cake tester or toothpick near the center of the loaf; if the tester comes out clean, then the center of the loaf is done.
How long do you let the banana bread cool before removing from the pan?
After you remove it from the oven, allow it to cool at least 15 minutes before removing it from the pan. Using a knife trace around the edges being sure the bread isn’t sticking to the sides. Flip it upside down and remove the pan. Flip it upright and allow it to cool on a cooling rack until it’s ready to be stored.
What do you eat banana bread with?
Well the short answer would be everything… right? Because it’s that good! Of course, you can spread it with Nutella, because there’s not much better than chocolate and bananas! You can also top it with Strawberry Rhubarb Jam – THAT is an amazing combination! Frankly hot out of the oven with a slab of butter? Life does get much better than that!
How long is this homemade banana bread good for?
Stored at room temperature it will only stay fresh for a day or two. Your best bet is to wrap it well in plastic when it’s still slightly warm and refrigerate it. Stored well it will keep in the refrigerator for up to a week!
