Papaya Banana Bread with Dried Figs

The latest recipe on my Banana Bread Recipe Blog is for Papaya Banana Bread with Dried Figs!

Here is the full recipe...

READY IN: 1 Hr 20 Min


* 2 cups flour
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* 1/2 cup butter
* 1 cup brown sugar
* 2 eggs
* 2 cups ripe banana (mashed)
* 1 cup ripe papaya (mashed)
* 1/2 cup dried figs (chopped)


1. Preheat the oven at 350F. Lightly grease a loaf pan.

2. In a large bowl, mix the flour and baking soda.

3. In another large bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar. Stir in the eggs, mashed banana, mashed papaya and stir really well.

4. Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix well. Add in the chopped figs.

5. Pour the mixture into your prepared loaf pan and bake at 350F for around 1 hour. Check the loaf is done by inserting a toothpick into the center of the loaf. If it comes out clean the loaf is done.

6. Allow the loaf to cool in the loaf pan for about 10 minutes before removing and placing on a wire rack to cool.

TIPS: If you don’t like papaya you can just add an extra 1/2 cup of mashed banana. Also, instead of using dried figs you can substitute 1/2 cup of any other dried fruit or perhaps some of your favorite nuts.

Curry & Pineapple Banana Bread

What could be weirder than the combination of curry powder and banana bread? The weird thing is however that it's a delicious combination!

The curry powder in this latest banana bread recipe adds a depth to the flavor that I've not tasted in any other banana bread recipe. It's well worth checking out...

Experiment: Ginger Kiwi Banana Bread

The latest recipe on the Banana Bread Recipe Blog was a bit of an experiment which I think turned out quite well...

Ginger Kiwi Banana Bread!!!

The flavor combination of banana and kiwi is a little unusual and the ginger and lime juice gives it a little kick, but I really liked the final result.

I wouldn't recommend this recipe to everyone, but if you're looking for something new to try and are feeling a little bit adventurous then give it a try and let me know how you get on!
