Cast Iron Skillet Banana Bread


    I love cast iron skillets and cook in them several times a week.  A cast iron skillet cooks everything so evenly and the skillet retains the heat too.  Today, I cooked up a batch of banana bread in one of my cast iron skillets and wanted to share with you how wonderfully moist and delicious this bread turned out.  It serves as a great breakfast, dessert or even as a snack.


  • 3 bananas, mashed up
  • 2 c. flour
  • 1 c. walnuts
  • 1/2 c. buttermilk
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 T. sour cream
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. salt


    Rub your 10"-12" cast iron skillet with butter.  Place your skillet into a 350 degree oven.  As your skillet is heating up, get out a medium sized mixing bowl and combine all the ingredients.  Stir well.  I used bananas that are almost black on the outside.  I have found that they make your banana bread so much more flavorful and moist.

    After your cast iron skillet has had time to heat up (about 6-8 minutes), remove the skillet and place it on your stove top.  Pour the banana bread batter into the skillet and spread evenly.


     Return the skillet into the oven and bake for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through out.  You know it is done when you stick a toothpick into the center and it comes out clean.

    Remove from oven and allow it to cool a few minutes before slicing into wedges.  Enjoy!

     I love to drizzle some homemade caramel over the top of each piece. Perfection!


     Other recipes that I cook in a cast-iron include: A succulent roast, true Southern cornbread, and Naan bread
