Tips to Make the BEST Banana Bread:

  • Use mayonnaise and egg at room temperature.
  • Don’t overmix the batter to prevent your banana bread from being too dense.
  • You can use other types of nuts like almonds, pecans, etc.
  • I recommend using ripe bananas because they are easier to mash and they have a richer taste.

Store Banana Bread:

You can store leftover banana bread with mayo for 2-3 days at room temperature or for 4-5 days in the refrigerator. Just place banana bread slices in an airtight container or use a plastic zipper bag.
