WC Recipe Exchange: Banana Bread

See? Now THIS is why I love the What's Cooking? board.

I entered, for the second time, the recipe exchange. You submit a recipe of your own, and you get "assigned" someone else's to make and blog about. This time, the theme was "Family Recipes."

I would never, ever have thought to put pineapple in banana bread. And making it with Bisquick?? That is PERFECT for a not-very-great-baker like me. The woman running the exchange must know me very well. :)

I had this loaf in the oven in no time. Seriously. I preheated the oven, started the bread, and I was done before the oven was ready. And my oven is quick.

The only addition I made to this recipe was to sprinkle some chocolate chips on top. Really, what CAN'T be improved with the addition of some chocolate chips??

This was DELICIOUS. I will for sure make this again. My husband and son LOVED it; Ryan even cried when "his" piece was gone. THANK YOU for a wonderful addition to my files!!

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup Canola oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2-3 over-ripe mashed bananas
  • 2 cups Bisquick
  • Small can crushed pineapple, mostly drained

Beat first 3 ingredients until fluffy. Add bananas and blend. Add last 2 ingredients and beat until mixed well. Put in a greased loaf pan. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes to 1 hour. This is best served warm with a pat of butter.


  1. SO glad you loved your exchange recipe. OMG...there are so many great recipes that were submitted...this is so exciting to see how everyone's recipe is turning out!

    By the way, this recipe is on my to make list too :)

  2. So when can you come to my hut and cook for me? I'll pay you a dollar! That's fair right?

  3. Yea! That's my mom's banana bread I sent for the exchange. I love it too, of course...I'm not much of a baker either and the pineapple is a great addition. My husband likes your chocolate chip idea :)

  4. Is this exchange still running. I'd love to find out more.
