Recipe: Banana Bread

1 Comment

This recipe was actually given to me and other members of my Product Knowledge class. Our chef-instructor, Chef Briggs, was kind enough to give us her self-proclaimed “Awesome Banana Bread.” I’ll admit, I haven’t actually made this recipe yet, but she did make it for us and passed out little bits for us to try during the last class before the final. I gotta say, it is pretty awesome! I’m a big fan of Banana Bread and this is some of the best Banana Bread I’ve had in a long time. So a big thank you to Chef Briggs for sharing this with us and a giving me the chance to share it with all of you!

According to Chef Briggs, this recipe should give you about 2 or 3 loaves of bread when all is said and done. So plan to give some to your friends or family!


  • 21 ripe bananas
  • 7 cups of sugar
  • 14 eggs
  • 2 and a half pounds of butter, melted
  • 14 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoons of baking soda
  • 1 cup and 5 tablespoons of buttermilk


  • Silicone Spatula
  • Large Bowl
  • Potato Masher
  • Wooden Spoon
  • No-Stick Spray
  • Sifter
  • 2 or 3 Bread Pans
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Peel and mash all the bananas. Make sure they’re not bruised or have black spots.
  3. Combine the banana mash with the sugar and eggs.
  4. When the mixture becomes combined thoroughly, add the melted butter. Stir to combine.
  5. Carefully and slowly sift the flour and baking soda into the mix.
  6. Finally, when that mixture comes together, add all the buttermilk and stir to combine.
  7. Spray the loaf pans and then add in the mixture to each pan.
  8. Bake in the oven for about an hour, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
  9. Let cool before serving.

Now, honestly, what could be better than freshly made Banana Bread? It’s delicious. Thanks again to Chef Briggs for showing the class this recipe! Have fun with this one guys!
