Seriously, there’s nothing more delicious than a warm slice of banana bread slathered in butter. This banana bread has an amazing flavor and texture, and I know you'll agree that it's the best you've ever had! This copycat recipe is spot on like my Copycat In n Out Burger.
Starbucks is a super popular coffee shop, pretty sure there's one or two in every neighborhood their pink drink is so refreshing and one of my favorites. Of course, what goes great with a latte? Well, banana bread of course, and their banana bread is delicious! So you can imagine how thrilled I was when I came across this recipe.
I am such a sucker for some warm banana bread. Apparently so is my Father-in-law because he can't get enough of this banana bread. I seriously make him a loaf or two every week.
- The batter will be super thick and that is normal.
- If you don't like nuts or are allergic just leave them out.
- You can make your own buttermilk by adding 1/2 tablespoon white vinegar to 1/2 cup of whole milk and let it sit for 10 minutes, mix and then use accordingly.
- I bake it in an 8x4 loaf pan you can use a 9x5 loaf pan but you'll need to watch the baking time.

Can I freeze ripe bananas?
Absolutely! Once the bananas get those brown freckles, It's time to bake with them. If your bananas are ripe and ready but not ready to bake, just put the whole banana, in a ziplock freezer bag. Then when you're ready to use them just defrost them in the refrigerator overnight or in the microwave on defrost and you're good to go! They will be mushy once they have been frozen and that's normal.
Yes, Cool completely. Tightly wrap the loaf in plastic wrap. Then wrap them in aluminum foil or a large ziplock freezer bag. Freeze for up to 3-4 months—Thaw in the refrigerator or at room temperature.
Store in an airtight container on the counter for 2-3 days or in the refrigerator for 5-6 days.
