Ricardo's recipe: Banana Bread



  1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 180 °C (350 °F). Butter a 23 x 13-cm (9 x 5-inch) loaf pan.
  2. In a bowl, combine the flour and baking powder. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar for about 1 minute until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth. Add the mashed bananas and beat with a wooden spoon. Add the dry ingredients alternately with the milk.
  5. Spread the batter in the prepared pan. Bake for about 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean.
  6. Let cool before unmoulding and slicing. 


For walnut banana bread, add 250 ml (1 cup) of chopped walnuts to the recipe. Add them to the batter along with the mashed bananas.


  1. Délicieux!!!

  2. Soooo good and easy to make. Not that anyone complains about banana bread. Sub almond milk and no one was the wiser

  3. Making this recipe over and over and over again. My girls love it. I just add chocolate Chipit in it ( about 1/2 a cup). YUM

  4. So moist, best banana bread I have ever made.

  5. Faite, refaite, re-refaite. Toujours un succès

  6. Easy to make and it gets destroyed by my boys in no time, keep making more nad more of it! :) everyone who's tried it, loved it!

  7. I made a double recipe, one loaf without walnuts for school lunch snacks, and a second loaf with walnuts for home...

  8. I think it might just be better than my moms! haha Cut myself a nice warm slice with some butter and boy was it good! Light and fluffy et c'était vraiment du gateau à faire!

  9. Great recipe. My family loved it. They are my critics and they don't hold back. Nice size of loaf, moist. Didn't sink to the bottom as some recipes do. Not overly sweet, can taste the banana. Definitely a keeper.
