Alright, I am totally obsessed with my Perfect Banana Bread, it really is the best classic banana bread! It’s dark and dense and incredible! Just like the stuff from Starbucks. But this new recipe, it’s heavenly too! Created by Lizzy Mae Early
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prep two large loaf pans by greasing. I like to also lien mine with parchment paper to easily remove my bread.
Beat butter and sugar until creamy.
Add eggs, milk, vanilla and almond extract and stir until combined.
In a separate bowl. combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
Add dry ingredients to wet slowly. Follow immediately by adding mashed bananas. Mix just until combined.
Pour into prepared pans.
Sprinkle a layer of sliced almonds on top and lightly sprinkles some sugar on top. This adds extra texture and makes the bread really beautiful, but it's totally optional!
Bake for 40-60 minutes or until an inserted knife comes out clean.Let cool in pans and then remove and serve!
