The bananas need to be very berry ripe. If you have bananas that are not very ripe you can ripen them in the oven. Preheat oven to 300ºF, Line a baking tray with parchment paper as the bananas may leak during the baking. Place bananas in the tray and bake in the oven for 15-20 mins or until the peel is shiny and dark.
But if you have a day or two to make your banana bread, you can ripen the banana by wrapping it up tight in a plastic bag or paper bag. It would be ripe enough in a day or two.
You don't have to use a fork to whip up your banana bread like I did. You can use a hand or Stand mixer to mix every thing up. I used the fork all through the process to show you how ridiculously easy this bread is.
For mashing the bananas you will have to use a fork or a hand blender.
