The famous banana bread recipe from 'Hungry for More' is here for you to make over and over again.

  • 2

    cups mashed very ripe bananas*

  • 4


  • 2⁄3

    cup canola oil (or melted butter), plus a little more to grease the pan

  • 2

    cups all-purpose flour, plus a little more for dusting the pan

  • 2

    cups sugar (or half brown sugar, half white sugar)

  • 1

    (3.5-ounce) box vanilla instant pudding mix**

  • 1

    teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 ½

    teaspoons kosher salt

  • 1

    cup unsweetened shredded coconut

  • 1

    (3.5-ounce) bar dark chocolate, chopped into chunks (or anything you love—peanut butter chips, nuts, etc.)

  • +

    Salted butter, for serving

*Get six brown bananas. Not four. Not five. Six. You will think you only need five because it looks like enough, but it will not be enough. You will get five, you will mash them, you will be about half an inch short and that makes a difference and you cannot get around it. Trust me. 

**I won’t tell you what brand to use, but the right brand rhymes with smello. Don’t use banana-flavored pudding mix. I tried it. It is gross. To substitute the pudding mix, you can also try equal parts powdered milk and half powdered sugar with a teaspoon of vanilla extract.
