Banana bread is a sweet, cakelike bread which contains mashed bananas. Banana bread is a quick bread which typically uses baking soda as the leavening agent instead of yeast. Rather than dough, the bread is baked from thick batter, which does not require kneading.
Variants of banana bread typically use egg substitutes such as soy yogurt, tofu or, more simply, additional banana. In some recipes
for banana bread, egg is the only non-vegan ingredient, making the creation of vegan banana bread fairly straightforward.
Banana bread first became a standard feature of American cookbooks with the popularization of baking soda and baking powder in the 1930s (and appears in Pillsbury's 1933 Balanced Recipes cookbook). The first banana bread recipe was thought to have been created by William Swanson. The home baking revival of the 1960s and the simplicity of its recipe led to an explosion in banana bread's popularity. The cookbooks of the 1960s added to its popularity because they commonly listed multiple variations of bread that added fruits and nuts.
Banana bread is very popular at bake sales and has become one of the most common items for sale for breakfast in cafés in Australia but the loaf is often less dense than in North America.
The old standard banana bread recipe is still very popular but new combinations of banana bread are becoming just as popular. Personally I can't bake banana bread unless I put a cup of walnuts in it. I love it that way and you can find many recipes now with walnuts added. You will find recipes for banana bread and chocolate as well. Bananas and chocolate have long been a combination that goes well together and it was just a matter of time before chocolate banana bread hit the recipe books. Banana and chocolate seems to be very popular in Australia. My Mother puts coconut in everything and banana bread is no different. She always adds 1/4 cup of coconut to her banana bread recipe.
