I LOVE this recipe. It’s just too good!!

And what I really love most about it is that you can put everything together in under 5 minutes (minus the baking time).

Naturally, when I decided to make banana bread, I knew it couldn’t be just any on Allrecipes… it had to be Dominique Ansel’s (aka the cronut inventor).

There’s something really comforting about fresh banana bread – I love the smell of it cooking in your oven. Dominique’s recipe is rich, buttery and full of banana, YUM!! The top crust of the bread has a nice crunch to it too. Make this ASAP!

Dominique Ansel’s Banana Bread

*an adapted recipe as I decreased the sugar measurement*


1 1/2 cups sugar

2 cups flour

¾ teaspoon baking soda

¾ teaspoon nutmeg

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

3 eggs

4 overripe bananas, mashed

14 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus more for greasing pan


1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Grease a 10″ x 5″ x 3 ½” loaf pan and set aside. In a large bowl, combine the sugar, flour, baking soda, nutmeg, salt and baking powder. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and combine with the mashed bananas. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and mix together until just combined. Stir in the melted butter until fully incorporated.

2. Pour the batter into prepared pan and bake until golden brown and a cake tester inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean, about 1 hour and 10 minutes. Allow to cool for 20 minutes before slicing.
