Banana Bread is a quick bread perfectly cooked in the Wolf Speed Oven. Banana Bread is a great recipe for using up old bananas that have gotten too brown to enjoy plain. Feel free to add raisins, chocolate chips, or any other goodies to add more flavor.

Prep Time
Cook Time




  • 3 very ripe bananas
  • 8 tablespoons butter at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup walnuts, lightly toasted in a pan


Preheat the Wolf Speed Oven on Convection Mode to 375°F.

In a mixing bowl, cream together 8 tablespoons of softened butter and 3/4 cup sugar.

Add bananas to the mixture and mash bananas with a fork until they are the consistency of chunky applesauce. Add vanilla, 2 eggs, flour, and baking soda. Add in toasted walnuts.

Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Cook the banana bread on the bottom rack for 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Let the banana bread rest for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
