It never fails that every time I buy bananas, at least one or two don’t get eaten and turn brown far too quickly. And what better to do with overripe bananas than to make banana bread!
Classic banana bread is always a winner, but sometimes it’s nice to add in a little something extra! Whether it’s another fruit like strawberries or blueberries, or even something sweet like chocolate chips or pumpkin, you can never go wrong with a loaf of banana bread.
And if your bananas aren’t fully ripe yet, here are a few ways to make that happen!
- Microwave– The quickest way, but least likely to produce super sweet results. Nuke it for 30 seconds to one minute. Basically, you are cooking it and allowing the sugars to release a little before you put it into the recipe.
- Oven- the same concept as the microwave. Heat to 350 degrees and bake for 5-30 minutes.
- Brown Paper Bag – My mother used this technique, but it still takes about a day. Place your bananas in a brown paper bag and roll it closed. Ethylene will build up and speed up the ripening process.
- Tropical Environment – Everything ages faster in the heat. Place your bananas someplace warm, like in a sunny window. It will still take up to a day, depending on how ripe the banana was to begin with.
- Single them out – lastly, pull your bananas apart. They ripen much faster separated than they do still hooked together.
