How do I get my banana bread to be moist?
az2010 from East Hampton, MA
Make sure the bananas are super ripe. Add an extra banana if you can.
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.
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 1/2 to 1 cup of sour cream before baking.
