  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x5-inch loaf pan. Whisk the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl.
  2. Beat the egg in a mixing bowl. Whisk in the mayonnaise, bananas, and vanilla extract until evenly mixed. Stir in the flour mixture until no dry lumps remain. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

This tastes excellent. I might try cutting back a little on the sugar next time, as it was just a tiny bit on the sweet side for me, but otherwise great. Nice alternative if you don't have but...

This banana bread recipe has great flavor. I made one change because of what I had on hand, which was to use 1/2 cup buttermilk instead of the mayo. The banana bread was delicious but I did not...

I was a tad leary of the mayo in it but was on the hunt for a recipe I had everything for, and was very low on butter... it was SOOOO yummy, but I needed to increase the baking time to about an ...

This is so completely delicious! My kids like it better than the 'regular' fat-in banana bread that I make. Well done!
