How ripe should bananas be for baking in bread and cookies?
When perfect banana for banana bread, banana cake, and banana cookies are very ripe. We are talking more than just a few brown spots.
So how dark should we let them get? If you can get them to the point of dark brown, to almost black in color; that’s a sweet ripe banana.
When they are very ripe it gives your bread and cookies a delicious sweet banana flavor. You may think they are turning black and so you need to toss them out.
NO. Those are the sweet bananas that will give you the most flavor when baking.
