I’ve saved this recipe from Canadian Living since November 1993. There is a reason for that. Not because I’m a hoarder but because it’s a delicious recipe.

Simple as that. I came home from work, grabbed a few ingredients and before you know it – I had banana bread in the oven. The only negative thing about this recipe is that it takes a full hour to bake. That’s right – a full hour.

The good news: it’s worth it.

Here’s what you need:

Bakers Banana Bread (from Canadian Living, Nov 1993).


2 eggs, lightly beaten

1 cup mashed ripe bananas

1/3 cup vegetable oil

1/4 cup milk

2 cups all purpose flour

1 cup sugar

2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

8 squares Baker’s Semi Sweet Chocolate (I used 5 squares…coarsely chopped)

Topping: 1/2 cup chopped nuts, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon (I’ve never done this step but go ahead!!)


Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Stir eggs, banana, oil and milk until well blended. (I use my Kitchen Aid).

step 1

Add flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.

step 2

Stir till moistened.

Stir in chocolate chunks.

step 3

Pour into greased 9×5 loaf pan.

Combine topping and sprinkle on top of batter (as I said earlier – I never make the topping)

Bake for 60 minutes or until wooden pick inserted comes out clean.


Cool for 10 minutes.
