Cook's Note: I have, of course, modified this recipe from the original recipe - as I always do. This is Bread is DELICIOUS, a family favorite that I have made for years and I can't recommend this recipe enough to you ALL!


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups mashed ripe banana (about 3 bananas)
  • 1/3 cup VANILLA low-fat yogurt or greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Cooking spray  

  • Directions:

    Preheat oven to 350°.
    Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt into medium bowl - stirring with a whisk.

    Place sugar and butter in a large bowl, and beat with a mixer (if you have a stand mixer, use that because it makes life easier!) at medium speed until well blended (about 1 minute). Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add banana, yogurt, and vanilla; beat until blended. Add flour mixture; beat at low speed just until moist.

    Spoon batter into an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack; remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack.
