How do I get my banana bread to be moist?

I think you might have the wrong recipe, because any banana bread I've made has been moist. It's awesome out of the oven, but wrapped up, it's even more moist the next day.
Make sure the bananas are super ripe. Add an extra banana if you can.
HI, I always use chopped or shredded carrots in my banana bread and zucchini breads for guaranteed moist cakes and breads. Mmm, I can taste it already!
Put 1/2 cup of sour cream and what a moist banana bread it makes. Try it. Yum
I add an 8oz (drained) can of crushed pineapple to the batter.
I replace about 1/3 of the sugar with molasses. It gives it a richer taste and doesn't change the structure because sugar is added with the wet ingredients in a recipe. Hope this helps.
It's probably your recipe.. Try this one. It has almost 400 great ratings.
This is an easy one! Look up Martha Stewart's banana bread recipe. I've been using it for years, but I don't have it in front of me today. It uses about a cup of sour cream and it always turns out moist and excellent. That's a hint I've used lots of times, too, even in other breads, cakes and cookies--add sour cream. I have also used plain yogurt in place of the sour cream in a pinch--also works great!
I add a grated apple to moisten the banana bread.
Store it wrapped up airtight, so no moisture escapes. You can make your recipe more moist by adding more fat or applesauce. God bless you, Kim
My mother always puts apples in her banana bread, to keep it moist, and it always get raves!!
Add an extra banana to the recipe.
My trick is to wrap it like many of the others have said - but the real secret is to wrap it in wax paper while it is still slightly warm - hope this helps!
I use part applesauce for the shortening or oil...mine seems to be nice and moist that way....I use oil in mine....
Add 1/2 to 1 cup of sour cream before baking.
Add a box of banana pudding mix. It adds extra banana taste and moisture.
Instead of using 2 eggs, I use; 1 egg and a well rounded TABLESPOON of MAYO. It seems to come out light and moist.
