Dominique Ansel's Banana Bread
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • ¾ tsp baking soda
  • ¾ tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 overripe bananas
  • 14 tbsp unsalted butter, melted, plus more for greasing pan
  1. Grease a large loaf pan, and set aside. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the sugar, flour, baking soda, nutmeg, salt and baking powder. In a separate bowl, mash the bananas thoroughly, then crack the eggs in and combine. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and mix together. Stir in the melted butter until fully incorporated.
  3. Pour the batter into prepared loaf pan and bake until golden brown and a cake tester comes out clean, about 1 hour and 10 minutes, depending on how cooperative your oven is.
  4. Allow to cool for 20 minutes before slicing.
