  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour two 8x3 inch loaf pans. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and baking soda; set aside.
  2. Mash the bananas, eggs, sugar, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, and cloves together in a large bowl with a fork until well combined. Stir in the melted butter and vanilla extract, then fold in the flour mixture until a batter forms and no dry lumps remain. Pour into the prepared loaf pans.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then remove from the pan, and allow to cool completely on a wire rack.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Way too much clove. I guess I like traditional banana bread better. Save the spice for pumpkin or zucchini.

This was pretty good. I was out of brown sugar so I chose this recipe since it just used white sugar. The spices add a really nice flavor and the smell was fantastic while it was baking. I made ...

I've been looking for a great banana bread recipe that includes spices like cinnamon and nutmeg because so many out there don't have them. This was an awesome recipe! I don't have a loaf pan for...

I used five bananas because I had them and didn't use cloves because I didn't. Used a mixture of brown and white sugars. My loaves were done in 37 minutes.

This banana bread was great! The spices add a nice flavor, different from the standard b-bread. I put the batter in one pan and baked for a little longer. I also added 1 cup of walnuts to the mi...

I did make it half brown sugar, half white sugar. But I'm sure it would have been delicious either way. This is the perfect banana bread!

My family loved this bread. The spices are wonderful - gives banana bread a little "extra"!

Very good - Friends who tried thought I have been making this bread for years, and I told them this was the first time I had ever made Banana Bread. I love this web site for find Recipe
