Pin It Now!


February 23rd annually recognizes a well-known food holiday, National Banana Bread Day.
A moist sweet, cake-like quick bread, banana bread is made with fully ripe, mashed bananas.   There are some recipes where banana bread is made as yeast bread, in which it is then usually sliced, toasted and spread with butter.
It was with the popularization of baking soda and baking powder in the 1930′s that banana bread first became a standard feature of American cookbooks and appeared in Pillsbury’s 1933 Balanced Recipes cookbook. Banana bread later gained further acceptance with the release of the original Chiquita Banana’s Recipe Book in 1950.
