Event Details

Learn how to bake banana bread with Ms. Liat! This program is for all ages, but an adult must be present. You will need to provide your own ingredients and kitchen tools (see below). Please register only once per family, even if you have more than one child attending.



Cooking spray

2 cups all-purpose flour

¾ teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon salt

3 very ripe bananas (medium to large)

  • Very ripe means the banana skins should have brown or black speckles. The bananas should be soft.

¾ cup white granulated sugar

2 large eggs

  • If you prefer, use ½ cup applesauce instead (unsweetened and plain, not chunky)

6 tablespoons unsalted butter

¼ cup plain yogurt

  • If you prefer, use non-dairy yogurt like almond milk yogurt instead 

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

OPTIONAL: ¼ - ½ cup mini chocolate chips or ½ - 1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen) or strawberries (diced into small chunks), or other special additions. You might also choose to add ½ teaspoon cinnamon.

OPTIONAL: ¼ - ½ cup chopped walnuts



8 ½ by 4 ½ inch metal loaf pan

  • If you prefer, you can use metal muffin trays instead. The recipe should make 18-24 muffins. Make sure to have enough baking cups (liners) to put inside the muffin trays, or spray them with cooking spray.
