National Banana Bread Day is upon us, on February 23! To celebrate, we’re rounding up our best recipes to date. From a deep, dark, and indulgent Black Cocoa Banana Bread to our all-time classic Caramelized Banana Bread, you’re sure to find a recipe that will hit the spot among this epic line-up.
We spike this quick bread with a double dose of crème fraîche (in the batter and the glaze) to tenderize the crumb and offer a touch of tang to round out the flavor.
Think of this as a breakfast bread version of bananas Foster. Crowned with golden Caramelized Banana halves and offering a hint of cinnamon flavor, this loaf is all about taking the banana to the nth power of sweetness.
Yes, Nutella makes everything better—but the true star of this nutty quick bread is the Chocolate Hazelnut Streusel.
Hazelnut and almond flours give this gluten-free quick bread a complex, earthy flavor. We love the addition of chopped hazelnuts, in lieu of pecans or walnuts, for a twist on the original.
Unlike regular cocoa, black cocoa is void of any acidity, so it’s able to deliver a deep cocoa punch without overpowering the banana flavor. This indulgent black cocoa bread is brimming with chocolate chips and smooth chunks of mashed banana.
Zucchini brings extra moisture to this classic quick bread, making for a more tender crumb. A medley of warm spices complement both the banana and summer squash beautifully.
The addition of everyone’s favorite cookie butter into our Banana Nut Biscoff Bread balances out this recipe’s nuttiness with irresistible sweetness and a smooth, rich flavor. This quick bread is just as at home on your breakfast as it is alongside your afternoon cup of coffee.
