What is banana bread?
Bananas are one of the most popular fruits on the market. So it is natural for them to appear in dessert recipes as a main ingredient.
Banana bread recipes were published in cookbooks during the Great Depression. A legend says it was because a resourceful housewife used over-ripe bananas in bread to keep from throwing them away. She was impressed with the way the bread tasted, so she continued the tradition. The recipe soon caught on, and as they say, "The rest is history."
Today there are many different variations of banana bread recipe. Some cooks use bananas and raisins. Some cooks add chopped nuts to the bread recipe. You may also add chocolate chips to enhance the taste.
