S’Mores Banana Bread



For reasons known only to my psyche, I was kinda of fixated on banana bread for a while. Quick breads are fun, and easy and taste good, so I guess that’s a good enough reason.

In any case, I ran into this cute recipe and thought it sounded great, since I remember those childhood days of s’mores around the campfire at girl scout outings. This seemed a bit reminiscent of that, so it seemed a good idea.

It turned out well, though I never found the “Kraft Marshmallow bits”, I simply used miniature marshmallows and they worked fine.

So do up a batch, especially if you have kids who will no doubt love the surprise in the center!


  • 6 TBSP softened butter
  • 1/2 c sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2-3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/ c sour cream
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 c miniature marshmallows
  • 2 full sheets of graham crackers
  • 2 lg Hershey bars


  1. Preheat oven to 350° and spray a loaf pan with cooking spray or grease it generously.
  2. Put butter and sugar in a bowl and mix well.
  3. Add the egg, bananas and sour cream, and mix well.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and powder. Add to the mixer and just mix until combined.
  5. Add the marshmallows and stir in gently.
  6. Pour half into the loaf pan. Cover that with the graham cracker layer and then a layer of the Hershey bars.
  7. Pour the rest of the batter into the loaf pan.
  8. Bake for about 50-55 minutes or until done.

Serves: 12 slices or so

Note: Recipe is from Picky Palate. This is a nice recipe to make with kids. Drizzle with some melted chocolate and some plain glaze colored with orange food coloring and you have a nice Halloween looking dessert they will enjoy.
