A easy banana bread recipe is the classic example of a quick bread. There are lots of versions out there—like this one we make with sour cream—but this banana bread recipe is the easiest, requiring only common pantry ingredients. Just mix flour, baking soda, and salt in one bowl; butter, sugar, eggs, and banana in another; and combine them, adding a little water as you mix. In about an hour you’ll have a moist banana bread that’s great for breakfast, tea, or just a snack.
