I will be honest, I go to the store, shop and bring home bananas often. I tend to forget about them, they go brown and then banana bread or smoothies is what happens to them. Since I created this recipe, I countdown the days till I see those brown specks develop on the bananas.
Instant Pot Caramel Pecan Banana Bread
I love banana bread, whether it’s plain, chocolate chip varieties, blueberries, or even caramel and pecans. This recipe right here is probably my most favorite. The Instant Pot makes it super simple on my part, locks in the moisture, so you don’t end up with an overly dry bread in the end. I can’t tell you how many times that has happened with my oven banana bread recipes. One minute too long and it gets over dry. The Instant Pot seals up the moisture so it turns out great each time.
Patience is key to the perfect banana for baking. When you start seeing speckled spots resist the urge to start baking. Trust me, the wait is worth it in flavor. Try to wait till your banana is almost brown all over, this is a really ripe banana that will give you the perfect banana flavor to your bread.
Benefits to Ripe Bananas for Banana Bread
Allowing your bananas to really ripen has many benefits. You get a sweeter and bolder banana flavor in your baked goods. Also, you are able to mash the bananas easier for a more smooth texture in your batter.
How do I Ripen My Bananas Faster
Start out by grappling a paper bag. Place your bananas in the bag and loosely close it. To speed the process up even more place a tomato or apple in the bag as well. The ethylene will build in the paper bag which helps ripen your banana a lot quicker than sitting on your counter. Just check on the bananas each day to see where they are in terms of ripeness.
You can’t use plastic bags for this, it needs to be paper. Paper bags still allow oxygen to pass through, this is needed or you will just end up with rotten bananas.
