How to Make After School Banana Bread – Magnolia Table

By Food No Comments

I have NEVER topped my banana bread with sugar and seriously it is a game changer! It added the perfect crunch to the top of the banana bread and made it taste so much better! I couldn’t have loved that addition to this recipe more! Overall, I really liked this banana bread. The recipe really isn’t much different than other recipes but nonetheless, it had the crunch and sweetness that you want so I will chalk it up to a success! This banana bread took no time at all to make and is perfect for rainy cold days or days of quarantine boredom.

Overall Rating 4.5/5

After-School Banana Bread

From Magnolia Table by Joanna Gaines

  • Nonstick Cooking Spray
  • 8 tbsp Salted Butter (melted and cooled) — Plus more for serving
  • 1 cup Packed Light Brown Sugar
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 4-5 Very Ripe Bananas -Mashed
  • 1 3/4 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 cup Chopped Pecans (I used Walnuts)
  • 1-2 tbsp Granulated Sugar
  1. Preheat to 350 degrees. She recommends an 8×8 pan but I think a bread pan works just as well! Make sure to grease the pan.

  2. In a medium bowl beat (with a mixer) the butter, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla until blended.

  3. Add bananas and combine.

  4. In another medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, and salt.

  5. Add the dry ingredients to your wet ingredients and combine. Add pecans and combine.

  6. Pour batter into greased pan and spread evenly. Sprinkle granulated sugar on top.

  7. Bake for about 40-45 minutes until cooked. Use a knife or toothpick to test that its cooked.

  8. Slice and serve with butter.
