Banana Bread in a Jar

 So I'm obsessed with jar baking lately because you can just make it so cute!  So here is my fun little banana bread recipe in 3 pint size jars.  Remember, you can put them in smaller to get more.  I only needed 3 Thank You's so that's why I did Pint size.

3 ripe Bananas, mashed
1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
1 C. Sugar
1 1/2 C. Flour
1 cube Butter, melted
1 Egg, beaten
Dash of Salt
3 Pint Size Mason Jars

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
In a mixer, mash bananas until smooth and creamy.  Add in flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and egg.  Mix well.
Mix in butter until smooth and a little runny.
Slowly pour into 3 pint size wide mouth mason jars.  Fill Each jar 3/4 of the way full.
Place 3 jars on middle rack in oven, on the lower rack fill a cookie sheet with about 1/2 inch of water.
Bake for 45-55 minutes, until brown on top.
Remove, and cool on rack until completely cool.
Screw on lid and then cut a fun piece of fabric and tie over the top with twine.  Give as gifts!


  1. This is a wonderful idea, my mom used to bake breads in cans, then dump them out and wrap them. This is way cuter! Thank you for the awesome idea!!

  2. How did you make the super cute tags ? Do you have additional photos of tags :)
