How to make this popular treat when you have only one hand free.

Show transcript

Hi, I'm Lindsay Weiss with the Baby Center Blog. If you're anything like me, you are often in the kitchen cooking with kids afoot everywhere. I very frequently have a baby on my hip or in a sling. So my little 9-month-old is going to help us make one-bowl banana bread, something anyone can do with a baby on their hip and one hand free. Let's get started.

So the ingredients you need for this banana bread are very simple. You need some melted butter, ripe bananas – stress on the ripe, salt, sugar, eggs, baking soda, flour, and vanilla. And with all that, we're ready to go.

So the first thing you want to do to make this banana bread is get your bananas right in the bowl, making sure they're very ripe bananas. So I have some pre-peeled for me, but I just wanted to show you that you can totally do this recipe one-handed. Every once in a while, you have to use your other hand for leverage. But I do this all the time. In fact, the baby could probably make this recipe himself.

Pour your melted butter in. And even if you don't have a stand mixer, I don't even always do this with a stand mixer, I still can do it. I'm stirring with my one arm, and you use your other one for leverage. Let these get happy together.

So once you have that nice and smooth, you're going to add your sugar. Next in goes your vanilla. And, finally, your eggs. And you'll turn that mixer up and let those get well blended.

And once those are happy together, you're going to sprinkle the baking soda over the top, like so. And a little pinch of salt, which always brings out the sweetness in any baked good. Let those get happy together. And then you're going to gradually add your flour. You'll give that one good mix. And once that's mixed up, you're ready to go to the oven.

So you can see I have the pan buttered and ready to go. Pick up the batter, and we're going to pour it in, leveraging and balancing with my right hand. Pour it right in. Hey, buddy, you want to give me a hand here? I could use a little help getting this in here. Getting all the batter right in the pan, nice and smooth. There we go. And then I'll smooth it out nicely.

Put this in here, and we are ready for the oven.

Once your loaf has been in for about 50 to 60 minutes, open it up. And the best way to check if it's actually done is to place an oven mitt on your hand and give the pan a little jiggle. If you see no movement at all, your banana bread is ready to go. If you get a little jiggle in the center, it's not quite set yet and needs to go for another few minutes.
