 Marble Banana Bread

This is one the easiest and delicious banana marble bread. CHRISTMAS is just around the corner. It is so quick to make, tastes so yummy and moist too! Treat yourself & your loved ones to this scrumptious marble bread subtly infused with flavors on this holiday season.

I love to make banana bread most of the time, I made it often! This time I gave a littlie twist to the banana bread to make it swirled. I took my popular chai spiced banana bread and decided to use the swirling technique from my marble vanilla cake to make a moist banana bread with a rich chocolate swirl throughout the bread.

How to make Best Banana Marble Cake

Tips while making best swirl banana bread

Butter: The butter should just barely be melted. It shouldn’t be hot and sizzling.

Bananas: You’ll need about 2 very ripe bananas, peeled. I like to use bananas that are brown and spotted but not black.

Flour: It’s important to properly measure the flour in order to avoid heavy or doughy bread. To properly measure the flour, stir it to break it up. Then lightly spoon it into the measuring up and level it off.

Easy Banana Bread

Cocoa powder: I use regular unsweetened cocoa powder in this recipe.

The bread can be frozen for up to 3 months. After it is completely cooled, wrap it securely in aluminum foil, freezer wrap or place in a freezer bag. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator before serving.

It’s cold, chilled weather, and yes… it’s time for a delicious homemade banana bread. Most people knows, I love banana bread and baking once in every 15 days or a moth, I know it's been so silly 😜😀 but my family loves this variations in banana bread so much. Whatever your family loves, you always made it for them on regular basis. This well liked bread is a good for brunches, pot-lucks, and family gatherings.

Make sure to use very ripe bananas. The riper they are, the sweeter and better they are for baked goods. If you like, you can replace part of the granulated sugar with jaggery powder either brown sugar. 

You can also stir in some chopped walnuts or any dry fruits which you like most like pecans. The best part about this cake, though, is that it’s so moist you can enjoy it for anytime!

6. In a small bowl, add 3 tablespoon of cake batter and add 2 teaspoon of cocoa powder in it. Mix well.

9. Let cool in the pan for about 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

 10. Serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or chai or coffee. It will taste good on the next day.
