Because this recipe yields 2 loaves I usually make one loaf with no added ingredients, and another that is chock-full of chocolate.

Tips for Making Betty Crocker Banana Bread
It’s not difficult to bake this bread. Everything is made all in one dish, and cleaning up is a breeze. However, I’ve learned a few things through the years on what to do in order to create the best Betty Crocker Banana Bread:
Mash your bananas well! I like using a mixer for this but you can also smash the bananas with your hands. It isn’t a good idea to have large chunks of banana left.
Use VERY ripe bananas! The more ripe, the more. Not only do bananas that are ripe contain more sugar as well, but they also help in locking the moisture in this banana bread. I am always excited when I notice that there are more bananas turning brown, because it indicates that delicious banana bread will be in the works.
Make sure to grease the loaf pan (or pans) prior to adding the batter. A thin layer of butter, canola oil or cooking spray are all you require to ensure that the loaf slides out effortlessly.
If you don’t have buttermilk, it’s so simple create your own!
Dairy Free Banana Bread
To accommodate my daughter’s diet needs, I’ve frequently created this recipe that is dairy-free. In order to do this, I’ve used Earth Balance sticks instead of butter, and also make homemade buttermilk with vinegar as well as Ripple Milk. We prefer Ripple Milk because of an allergy to nuts, but should a nut milk be an option, we’d most likely choose that over Ripple Milk. With the addition of an egg substitute you can make this recipe vegan.
