The miso in this supremely delicious banana bread adds deeper, robust flavor. The bread is fantastic the day it's made, but it tastes even better the following day. Slideshow:  More Banana Bread Recipes

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350°. Butter and flour a 10-by-5-inch metal loaf pan. In a bowl, using a fork, mash 4 of the bananas until chunky. In another bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.

  • Using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle, cream the butter, sugar and miso at medium speed until fluffy, about 5 minutes. At low speed, slowly add the buttermilk, then beat in the eggs 1 at a time until incorporated. Beat in the mashed bananas; the batter will look curdled. Add the dry ingredients and mix until just blended. Scrape into the prepared pan.

  • Slice the remaining banana lengthwise and arrange the halves on top of the batter side by side, cut side up. Bake for 90 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let the bread cool on a rack for 30 minutes before turning out to cool completely.

Make Ahead

The banana bread can be wrapped in plastic and kept at room temperature for up to 3 days.
