Banana Pandan Bread is the perfect use for ripe bananas! Topped with cashew and loaded with pandan flavor, this quick bread is delicious and filling for breakfast or as a midday snack.
G requested a few days ago that I make his favorite turon, but although I cooked enough to feed the neighborhood, I still had a few saba bananas leftover. I found the bunch today on the kitchen counter, gasping their last remaining breath. They were soft, sweet, and just right for baking bread!
I’m glad, for once, that I get overly excited about food shopping and tend to overbuy because this banana pandan bread turned out quite a delectable treat!
It’s such a quick and easy recipe, the kitchen will be smelling heavenly of freshly-baked bread in no time.
I suggest making a few loaves as you’d want delicious slices of this banana bread handy at ALL TIMES with your morning coffee or for an afternoon snack. The combination of pandan and banana flavor plus crunchy roasted cashews are hard to resist!

In a bowl, beat butter and eggs until combined. Add sugar and salt and continue beat until sugar is dissolved.
