Raisin Banana Bread

Minoo made a Raisin Banana Bread while Zoe was preparing her ingredients for the Vietnamese Shrimp Roll. The Banana Bread recipe is upon the request of Tony. Tony joined the community kitchen with no knowledge of how to cook at all. But for his daughter’s sake, he came to the community kitchen and has learned a lot. Tony always goes back and tries every recipe he learned.


This Raisin Banana Bread is a healthy breakfast or snack item. I love the mini loaf pan Minoo used as it yields some cute mini loaves. This mini loaves are good as a gift.


  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 cups mashed ripe bananas
  • 1 cup maple syrup or honey
  • 1 stick melted butter

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

    What happen to the 3 eggs? Did not see any steps refering to them.

    Hi Suk Yen, thanks for pointing that out. The eggs should go in together with the rest of the wet ingredients like honey, butter, etc. I had updated the post.

    Sooni, maybe try the grocery store in IFC mall? I was there in September and they had a large kitchen appliance section with lots of different baking tools.
