Frequently Asked Questions

Why is my banana nut bread dry?

Two reasons come to mind. First, either too much flour or too little water. Try 1-2 tablespoons less flour and see if that helps. Secondly, over-baked bread tends to dry out. Everyone’s oven is different, not to mention altitude. Start checking doneness 10 minutes before the recipe recommends.

How ripe do bananas have to be for banana bread?

The riper the banana, the better. Bananas that are overripe but not rotten make sweeter, moister banana bread. The skin has many dark spots (or dark brown skin) and is soft to the touch. My favorite has a slightly fermented smell.

How do you know when banana bread is done?

The top should be firm to the touch and should come out clean with no signs of wet dough when a toothpick, skewer, or thin knife is stuck into the banana bread.

What to Accompany Banana Nut Bread

The nutty banana bread can be enjoyed on its own, but it’s even better when served with a luscious sauce and elegant frosting underneath.
