With all the different types of sweet breads out there one of the most popular might just be the banana bread. Banana bread is a type of cake, some argue the point that it should be considered a bread but officially it is classified as a cake. It is made with mashed bananas and usually the riper the better and it is usually cooked in a loaf shape vessel. It is more often than not moist, sweet, and can be described as a quick bread. There are however, some recipes that are closer to traditional-style rye breads that are also thicker and much denser than ordinary bread recipes.

Banana bread first became a member of American cook and baking books with the popularization of baking soda and baking powder in the 1930s, distinguishing it from more contemporary yeast leavened breads. It appeared in Pillsbury’s 1933 Balanced Recipes cookbook, and later was further accepted with the release of the original Chiquita Banana's Recipe Book in 1950 and has gone on to be loved and baked across North America and around the world. It has become so popular that it has a day named after it. National Banana Bread day is on 23 February. Bananas first came on the scene in the US in the 1870s and it took some time for them to appear

as ingredient items for desserts recipes. The modern banana bread recipe started being published in cookbooks around 1930 and its popularity was greatly enhanced by the introduction of baking powder. Some food historians believe banana bread is a byproduct of the Great Depression in the United States as resourceful housewives did not wish to throw away overripe bananas but others believe the modern banana bread was developed in corporate kitchens to promote flour and baking soda products. One way or another they are now loved by many and with the fabulous nutricious value of the banana it can easily be stated that it’s popularity will only get better.Thanks to Shannon of Cozy Country Livivng Blog for her yummy Peanut Butter Banana Bread recipe.
