This is a very moist banana bread with lots of banana flavor. There is a bit of spice for those who like a bit of 'extra' in their banana bread. This recipe still has a big banana flavor with a scrumptious note of spice to make it really special.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and salt together in a bowl.
  3. Beat butter, white sugar, and brown sugar together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Stir bananas, eggs, lemon juice, and vanilla extract into creamed butter mixture until well blended. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture until batter is just combined; pour into the prepared pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean, 60 to 65 minutes. Cool bread in the pan for 10 minutes before turning onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Very nice banana bread. I admit, because of the name, I added more ginger (I love ginger.) I added 1/2 tsp. instead of 1/4th tsp. and also added some crystallized ginger to the batter. My bananas were quite ripe and sweet, so I used a little less sugar than called for.

Aroma while baking was wonderful. Tasted sweet, with an excellent balance of flavors. Texture was very moist and luscious. I will be making this again.
