Banana bread recipe

I just love making simple banana cake recipes and baking new recipes. This time I found Emeril Lagasse banana bread so I had to try it!

The result is this easy and moist banana bread with some extra cinnamon that I always have to double it to be on my taste :).

simple cake recipes


  • 1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening (I used butter at room temperature)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup mashed ripe bananas
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts
  • pinch of cinnamon (I just adore cinnamon so I used 2 teaspoons :))

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Using an electric mixer, cream the butter with the sugar at high speed.  Add in the eggs one at a time, than add the bananas and mix well.

In a medium bowl, stir together the baking soda, salt, flour, nuts and cinnamon and add the mix to the dough. Mix until the dough is formed.

Pour the dough in a prepared pan and bake for about an hour or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
