Walnut Banana Bread Recipe

When I opened the fridge this morning I saw that I had 3 very ripe bananas. I couldn’t eat them as they were almost black and, even though I love bananas, I don’t like them very ripe. So, what to do? Banana bread!

It’s been ages since the last time I made banana bread so I was really excited when I started making it.

I did a quick search online for ‘easy banana recipes’ and I decided to follow this one from, except I added walnuts to the recipe.



  • 200g plain flour
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 50g butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 3 very ripe bananas
  • 50g of chopped walnuts


How to make banana bread step by step

  1. Preheat the oven at 180ºC
  2. Mash the bananas in a bowl
  3. Mix the sugar and the butter
  4. Beat the eggs and add them to the bowl
  5. Add the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate soda, vanilla extract into the bowl and mix well
  6. Include the walnuts
  7. Place the mixture in the tin
  8. Bake it for 60min at 1800C – you can check with a toothpick if it’s ready by inserting it in the cake, if the banana bread is ready the toothpick will come out clean or only with a few moist crumbs.




Enjoy the banana bread!
