I borrowed this recipe from my mom, and I have given away mini-breads for Christmas for several years. Everyone loves it!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 3 bananas, mashed
  • 1 cup grated carrots
  • 1 cup walnuts

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 4x8-inch loaf pans.
  2. 2 Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt together in a bowl. Beat brown sugar and butter together in a separate bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Stir flour mixture, alternating with bananas, into creamed butter mixture just until batter is mixed; fold in carrots and walnuts. Pour into the prepared loaf pans.
  3. 3 Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of a loaf comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes.

  1. Next time I think I'd make a slightly bigger batch. It calls for 8x4 bread pans but mine are 9x5. So my loaves came out very short. But that's not the recipe's fault that's mine for using the wrong pans. Next time I'll just beef it up and make 50% more batter. Oh and I - Read more ...
  2. Made the bread. Followed the recipe to the letter. It called for two 8 x 4 loaf pans. Loaves came out about 2 inches high. Very dense and heavy. Did the toothpick test which tested done and the bread had pulled away from the sides of the pan. That says done to me. It was - Read more ...
  3. My husband loved it. very moist. Delicious!
  4. No eggs no oil this was done exactly as recipe called for. It was awful. Carrots and bananas in this recipe didn't go together!! I think she left out the main ingredients eggs and oil!
  5. Batter was so dry- added 2 eggs as recommended- was still quite thick and had to spread it into corners of pan. It baked up nicely bready textures bit dry. And not as sweet as cake. We just ate ours warm with ice cream! Delightful!
  6. I used this recipe but didn't add the banana's! I just wanted the carrot flavor! I used 2 1/2 c shredded raw carrots as that was all I had. I added milk to replace moisture from banana's along with dried buttermilk. Also added 1 1/2 tsp vanilla. Will make again.
  7. It turned out never use coconut flour
  8. This recipe was delicious. I added two eggs and sprinkled the top with sanding sugar. My family ate the entire loaf. I also added about 1 1/2 cups walnuts and a tsp. vanilla.
  9. I thought this was pretty tasty banana bread. It has a nice sweet flavor and almost tastes like a mix between carrot cake and banana bread, but definitely still a banana bread in overall flavor and texture.
