Banana Bread in a Bundt Pan

If you didn’t know this already, you can use a bundt pan for banana bread!

I think that this idea is brilliant. I love how it looks like a cake simply by putting it into a different pan. It’s different than the loaves that I’m used to seeing, but different in a good way.

What size bundt pan do I need?

You’ll need a 9 inch or 10 inch bundt pan or in other words, a 10 cup or 12 cup bundt pan.

Banana Bread Recipe with 4 Bananas

You’ll need 4 bananas for this recipe and any size will do.

I’ve made this recipe once with average-sized bananas and a second time with large ones and both times the bread came out fabulous. The only difference is that the larger the bananas are, the longer you have to bake the bread and the moister it is as well.

Sour Cream Banana Bread

There’s just a little sour cream in this recipe for richness and flavor. It may not be much but it’s definitely enough!

Can I substitute the sour cream?

You can replace the sour cream with greek yogurt.




Why both butter and oil?

Using only butter would yield a drier bread and using only oil would make the bread much too oily. Together they yield a bread that is flavorful, soft, moist, and tender.

Why both white and brown sugar? Can I use only white?

The brown sugar is for extra flavor but you can definitely use just the white sugar if that’s all you have on hand.

Why so much salt?

The salt is for flavor!

One loaf of banana bread usually contains ½ teaspoon of salt and since the batter for this recipe is enough for 2 loaves, there’s double the amount.

Why 4 eggs?

Not only are the eggs in this recipe responsible for binding all of the ingredients together, they also provide much needed moisture! Even omitting just one egg would make a big difference.

Why use a “very large mixing bowl”?

This recipe produces a high quantity of batter; therefore you’ll need a very large bowl to mix everything in.

Just to give you a rough idea of how much batter there is, it’s enough for 2 loaves of banana bread or 24 muffins. Yeah, it’s a lot! So I recommend using the largest bowl you have.

Why is the baking temperature 325°F?

You’ll notice that the baking temperature for this banana bread is lower than average simply because there is a lot of batter and baking it at this specific temperature allows the inside and outside to bake at the same rate.

Baking it at 350°F would most likely cause the outside to burn while leaving the inside raw and you definitely don’t want that!

How to remove the Banana Bread from the Bundt Pan

Place a plate or wire rack upside down on top of the pan. Place one hand on the plate then carefully slide the other hand under the bundt pan and flip it.

If you hear a quiet thud, it means that the bread has fallen out. If you don’t, give the pan a few light taps until it does, then slowly lift the pan up off the bread.

The only way to ensure that the bread doesn’t stick to the pan is to grease it very well!

The bread in these pictures ended up getting stuck and didn’t seem to want to come out. It had a huge crack but it was still eaten nonetheless.

Add-ins & Decorative Options

Feel free to add chocolate chips, blueberries, or nuts to your bundt pan banana bread.

I chose to leave the top of mine plain but to make it extra special you can dust yours with powdered sugar or drizzle it with chocolate sauce or melted caramel.

Crystal, do you think this recipe could be made, by swapping out bananas for apple sauce or pumpkin puree? What would you guess the measurement should be for those ingredients? Will try this original recipe next when I have ripe bananas in the house.

Hi, Lisa! Yes, it can. I’ve personally done the applesauce swap myself (with another recipe) and it was a success. For every banana called for, I used 1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce, so for this recipe you’ll need 2 cups. I believe the measurement for pumpkin puree would be the same however, since pumpkin is not an acidic ingredient you may end up tasting the baking soda.

Hello ! I love your recipes !!!! I wanted to bake this tonight. Could you please let me know if this needs to be refrigerated after making ? Also, how many days will it taste “fresh” until ? Thank you !!!

Thank you so much! I kept my bread in the bundt pan, covered it tightly with foil, and left it out at room temperature for 24 hours. After that, I refrigerated it. My family and I ate it the next day but it should last in the fridge for 5 – 7 days. I believe if you don’t refrigerate it, it would last for about 2 days. I hope this helps!

I’ve never done it myself but I believe you can. Others have done it with my other recipes and people do it all the time with baking recipes in general. Let me know how it turns out.

I only have 3 medium-sized bananas. Would 3 bananas be enough to make this recipe, or would the recipe not come out right?

It’s doable! The bread will most likely be less moist and it won’t have as much banana flavor but it will still be good.
These are 2 options that you can choose from that I think will work well:
1. Make the bread with just 3 bananas and increase the oil to 1/2 cup.
2. Replace the 4th banana with 1/2 cup of applesauce.

This was an amazing banana bread! My son said it was the best of all the other ones made :). I would like to add nuts to the next pan, would it be just traditional walnut pieces and if so how much should I add?

Reply
Crystal | Beat Bake Eat May 6, 2020 - 11:11 am

Wow, thank you!! You can use walnuts or pecans or macadamia nuts; your choice. Add 1 – 1 1/2 cups depending on how nutty you want it. Fold them into the batter at the very end.

Wonderfully easy and delicious bread. I added about a cup of pecans and it was wonderful. Had to extend the baking time about 7 extra minutes but it just could have been my oven. Thanks for this recipe and for including the nutrition count. I am diabetic so I am always watching my carbs.

It could also be the size of the bananas that you used; more banana = more moisture. I’m glad you enjoyed it! And you’re very welcome. I try to include the nutrition facts for all of my recipes. Thanks so much for the 5-star rating!

This recipe sounds so very delicious. If I were to add blueberry’s to it how many would I add and do I have to adjust the recipe at all to make allowances for it. Thanks in advance

Thank you, Lee! You can add 1 1/2 – 2 cups of blueberries. You do not need to adjust the recipe, just gently fold the berries into the batter at the very end.

This is the most delicious banana bread I have ever eaten! So delicious! I folded in 1/2 cup of walnuts & 1/2 cup of pecans since we love nuts in banana bread, other than that I followed the recipe exactly. I think my family would love this even without the nuts, it has such a good flavor. It took 55 minutes in a bundt pan. I made it in the morning and we tried it at night. Absolutely delicious, very flavorful and perfectly moist. I will never need another recipe for banana bread! Can’t wait to try your other recipes!
