Banana Mandarin Bread

Banana bread is my to go baked food. It’s a relatively healthy and very fulfilling snack. My kids love them. It’s easy to make and I don’t need the recipe since it’s stuck in my head after many years of baking it. Today I’d like to add something new to my usual banana bread recipe for a fresh taste, but it should maintain the sweet banana flavor. Mandarin is my pick since it’s still in season. And I love mandarin for its less sour, sweeter and stronger taste. Let’s give it a try and find out how it tastes.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease the loaf pan. Or use the parchment paper to cover the bottom of the pan.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda & salt. In a separate bowl, mix the butter and brown sugar together. Stir in eggs, mashed bananas and mandarin cubes until well blended. Stir banana mandarin mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten then fold them by a spatula to make sure the flour is mixed well.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 50-60 minutes. Test the bread using a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf. It’s done if the toothpick comes out clean. Let the bread cool in pan for 10 minutes then bring the bread to a cooling rack.
