When was the banana bread invented?


banana bread is a cake made from bananas, flour and other ingredients.

Ingredients and manufacture

Depending on the recipe, it is made from crushed bananas, wheat flour, sugar, baking powder, butter, milk and egg or soy milk or tofu. Nuts, raisins or dates as well as spices (cinnamon or vanilla) can be used as additional ingredients. Banana bread is usually baked in a loaf pan and served sliced.

Due to the high content of carbohydrates, it can be used as an energy supplier in endurance sports.


Banana bread is comparatively quick and easy to prepare and is particularly popular in the USA and Australia. When exactly it was invented is not known. It could have been the end of the 18th century when potash was used as a leavening agent. This is contradicted by the fact that it was not specifically mentioned in the first cookbook printed in the USA in 1796. In addition, bananas were only available in large quantities on the market after the colonial expansion around 1880, because there were previously problems with transport and storage due to a lack of cooling facilities. Banana bread is reliably proven by a recipe in a baking book from 1933. Later numerous modifications were developed and ready-made baking mixes were also brought onto the market.
