Maple Banana Bread

Maple banana bread stacked on a plate.

This weekend, I made burned bread pudding, soupy chocolate pie, and a bowl of cereal instead of a real dinner.

That’s one major recipe fail. Which has the potential to lead to a major blog fail for the week.

But guess what? I can think of one thing which is virtually fail-proof, and that’s butter, sugar and flour. And by butter, sugar and flour, I mean banana bread.

Hello, Maple Banana Bread. Maybe I’m not a failure after all.

To console myself, I ate three pieces, with butter.

Then I watched my sister’s wedding video.

Banana bread, wedding videos, and short posts on Mondays.

All is right in the world.

Maple Banana Bread

This maple banana bread is easy to make and makes your whole house smell like a cozy bakery. Perfect with a glass of cold milk, tea, or latte.


  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, soft
  • 2 eggs
  • 34 large bananas, mashed
  • 1 teaspoon maple flavoring
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda


  1. Mix all ingredients through maple flavoring.
  2. Add last three ingredients and mix until just combined.
  3. Pour into a greased 9×5 pan and bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes. Do not overbake.


I had better luck baking in a glass pan (rather than a dark nonstick). Also, the outside will get a little bit darker than typical banana bread because of the maple flavoring.
