I grew up in Chicagoland, where a restaurant makes the famous ” mayonnaise chocolate cake.” ¬†That gave me the idea to use mayo to make the richest-tasting banana bread muffins possible. ¬†This is such a great recipe! ¬†I might need to start using mayonnaise in more of my baked goods!

Three bananas mashed

One teaspoon vanilla

How to convert this banana bread muffin recipe to a loaf banana bread recipe.

This recipe is so great that you may want to make it in a loaf pan.  This moist banana bread recipe can be baked in a loaf pan if you want banana bread instead of muffins.  You will want to double the cooking time to 45 minutes and lower the oven temperature to 325f.  If you make this recipe into a banana bread loaf, ensure it is cooked by making sure a toothpick comes out clean before removing it from the oven.

How ripe should your bananas be for this recipe?

The ripeness of your bananas can be a personal preference.  I like my bananas yellow with brown spots when I make banana bread.  If your bananas are not ripe enough, you can bake them in the oven for 10-15 minutes to soften them.
