Brown Butter Banana Bread Recipe

Print Friendly

I have seen so many recipes lately that have browned butter in them, but have yet to try it!  I finally decided to give it a whirl and knew I couldn't go wrong with banana bread.  The brown butter gives  the bread such a rich taste!  I don't know how else to explain it, so you'll just have to try it for yourself! :)

Brown Butter Banana Bread Recipe:
(Makes 1 loaf)

Ingredients:
8 Tablespoons unsalted butter
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
4-5 ripe bananas, mashed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and spray an 8-inch loaf pan with nonstick baking spray.  In a medium saucepan over high heat, melt the butter.  Once butter is melted, lower heat to medium and swirl the butter around in the pan rather than stirring it.  Continue swirling the butter for a few minutes over the heat until it starts to turn brown in color.  Remove the pan from the heat and let cool.  In a large bowl, combine flour,brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs then add mashed bananas, vanilla and cooled butter.  Add egg mixture to dry ingredients and mix until just combined.  Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.  Bake for 60-70 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

      The brown sugar is actually the sugar in the directions. We just forgot to put “brown” before the word sugar. It’s the only type of sugar in this recipe. We fixed it so it won’t confuse anyone else. Thanks for the heads up!

    I made this as a loaf and it tasted great, but burned on top before being cooked in the middle. I am going to try and make it in muffin tins instead, Do you think that will work OK?
