Why bake banana bread in an iron skillet?

First, an iron skillet evenly distributes heat. In turn, this will bake up your bread more evenly.

Second, it’s a shorter baking time. While a 9 inch loaf pan will take you anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour for banana bread, a 9 inch skillet only takes about 25-30 minutes for baking.

Hence, you are enjoying your fresh baked banana bread considerable quicker this way and that, is definitely a good thing. 👍

Ingredients List:

  • Butter
  • Egg
  • Vanilla
  • Coconut palm sugar
  • Bananas
  • Flour + Salt+ Baking soda
  • Dark chocolate chips

Butter: Be sure it’s softened!

Coconut Palm Sugar: If desired, this can be replaced with regular white sugar or brown sugar.

Bananas: I used 3 medium size bananas for ours. Depending on the size of your bananas, you will need about 1 cup of them mashed.

Flour: Feel free to use a combo of white and whole wheat flour, if desired. I wouldn’t recommend using all whole wheat, as it could turn out a bit denser than average.

Do I Have to Use an Iron Skillet? No. A 9-10 inch oven safe skillet will also work. See recipe card for the iron skillet I have and love.

I recently got a skillet so was intrigued by this recipe. What a lovely idea, and it's easily made vegan and gluten free too with a few swaps so my daughter and I can eat it.

@Rebecca - Glutarama, what did you do to make it gluten free? I'm always afraid to convert recipes with lots of a.p. flour. Thanks!
