Tuesday With Dorie: Black and White Banana Loaf

This week Ashlee of A Year in the Kitchen picked Black and White Banana Loaf. I liked the concept of a marbled banana bread but this will not become my banana bread recipe. Problems is not the right work, I have a few complaints:

How much banana is 1 and a half bananas? (I tend to switch out the bananas with pumpkin or apple depending on who I make it for. At work there are a few people that are allergic to bananas.)

Do we really need that much butter? It came out very most but the top was very brown.

How full should I have filled the loaf pans? I was worried about spill over and did not fill them as much as I could have.


I doubled the recipe, I was using frozen bananas and it was easier to use 3 than 1 1/2. This made 2 loafs and 7 muffins. It was fun playing with the marbling. I even made one of the muffins half and half. I think that I use this technique next time I make banana bread, just with one of my other recipes.

All good questions that other TWDers were asking too. I didn't get a chance to make it but I'll have to remember when I do. Love your little muffins!

This left me with a lot of questions too. Yours look tasty though!

The recipe could have been a touch more specific, you're right about that. Everything looks good, though.

This wasn't one of my favorites, either. Bring on the ice cream!

i wasn't sure how much was 1.5 bananas either but since i really like the bananas, i added 2. sorry you weren't a huge fan of this pick, but your loaf does look great!
