Skillet Banana Bread

Use your cast iron skillet for more than just bacon. It's also a wonder for BAKING. Try this Quick & Easy Skillet Banana Bread and see for yourself.



  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Using an electric mixer on medium-high, beat the butter and sugars in a large bowl until smooth and creamy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then beat in the bananas and vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cardamom, and allspice. Add the flour mixture to the banana mixture and fold in with a spatula until well blended. Gently fold the nuts and sour cream into the batter until just blended, being careful not overmix.
  2. Lightly butter a 10 or 12 inch cast iron skillet. Pour the batter into the skillet; place in the oven and bake until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan. To serve, flip the bread out of the pan or serve it from the skillet, sliced into wedges.
