How to Make the Best Self Rising Flour Banana Bread
In case you’ve never baked banana bread before, I’ve included my 3 BEST tips for making amazing banana bread very single time.
1. USE REALLY RIPE BANANAS
You know when your bananas turn brown, spotty, squishy, and you think they need to be thrown away?
Don’t toss them – use them for banana bread!
Remember, the more ripe the bananas are, the sweeter they are, and the better they taste in banana bread.
2. DO NOT OVERMIX THE BATTER
When making breads and muffins, it’s very important not to overmix the batter.
Overmixing makes the mixture dry and tough when you bake it, and nobody likes dry baked goods, right?
I recommend stirring by hand and mix until JUST combined. (A little flour showing is fine!)
3. ADD SOME TOPPINGS
This banana bread is super yummy without any toppings added, but around here we love to add chocolate chips and chopped nuts to make this banana bread over the top delicious.
Below I’ve included several easy and yummy topping ideas for this banana bread recipe that will make it even more delicious.
What toppings can I add to self rising flour banana bread?
- Chocolate Chips (Semi-sweet, Milk, Dark, or White)
- Chopped Nuts (Walnuts, pecans, or peanuts)
- Sprinkled Cinnamon
- Diced Apples
- Fresh Berries
- Peanut Butter Drizzle
Banana Bread with Self Rising Flour FAQ’s
What is self-rising flour?
Self-rising flour is just as the name says, it’s self-rising.
Unlike all-purpose flour where you have to add additional ingredients to ensure baked goods rise properly, self rising flour already has everything you need in it.
It’s made up of all-purpose flour, salt, and baking powder and is a great ingredient to have on hand.
Can self-rising flour be used for banana bread?
In fact, self-rising flour is what I use about 99% of the time in my baked goods.

Can I turn this self rising flour banana bread into muffins?
Yes, this banana bread can easily be made into muffins, and is a great for on the go breakfasts throughout the week.
Banana muffins also take less time to bake up, so they’re great when you’re crunched for time.
How many bananas do I need for banana bread?
I designed this recipe to be versatile, because I know sometimes you may only have a few extra bananas lying around.
For this recipe, you can use either 3 medium to large bananas or 2 medium to large bananas + 3/4 cup of applesauce.
I frequently find myself only having 2 bananas leftover, and this recipe works perfectly!
The applesauce will replace the extra banana and helps add more moisture to the bread.
How ripe should bananas be for banana bread?
Very ripe! The browner the better, and the sweeter the flavor.
You never want to use bananas with bright yellow (or green) skin, as these will not be sweet enough.
Instead, wait until your bananas have turned brown, freckly, and are mushy.
They will make the perfect banana bread.
Can I freeze overripe bananas?
Yes, absolutely! You should never throw away overripe bananas, as they make THE BEST banana bread.
Place overripe bananas directly in the freezer (peel and all) for up to 3 months.
How to use frozen bananas in banana bread:
First remove frozen bananas from the freezer, and run hot tap water over them for 1-2 minutes.
Next, peel the skin off your bananas and microwave in a bowl for about 3 minutes until thawed. Mash and use in the recipe as directed.
