This flavorful, moist, and delicious banana bread bakes right in a cast iron skillet making this a great breakfast, snack, or evening treat!
I don’t know about your house, but I almost ALWAYS have bananas on my counter to use up, or in my freezer! My go to snack to make for my kids is banana bread. I am able to get about 4 mini loaves per batch, so I keep 1-2 out and freeze the rest.
Last week, I was cleaning out my freezer and found a stock pile of bananas. Seriously, a huge pile! As in about 10-15 bananas. Those things add up quickly I guess, haha!
I took a few out to make some banana bread, but decided to change it up and make it in our cast iron skillet instead.
Not only did it turn out fabulous, but my kids LOVED the fact it was cut into “pie slices”. My son said it looked like pumpkin pie, but tasted like banana, lol!
My daughter had a friend over from school and after one slice, she quickly asked for seconds declaring it the “best banana bread ever”. Wow! She’s invited over more often because of that, right??!
I cut ours into about 12 slices and we ate it over the course of about 4 days. This freezes perfectly in case you want to save for later!
Enjoy warm with some butter, serve with your coffee, or enjoy as a snack/evening treat!
If you’re looking for a quick and simple banana bread recipe that turns out perfectly each time, look no further!
If you don’t have a cast iron skillet, you can also make this into loaves (large or mini).
