What? Yup, you have got it!  Banana friggin' split bread!  I had a craving for banana bread last night and ended up with this crazy creation to satisfy my sweet tooth and banana bread love!  I wanted to make banana bread and thought about adding my  frozen organic cherries and it just took off from there!
Use your favorite recipe for banana bread or use mine below then add your favorite banana split ingredients!  Chocolate chips or butter scotch chips, cherries, strawberries, nuts, little marshmallows, crushed pine apple,served with a caramel or hot fudge drizzle on an ice cream scoop on top of the bread slice, coconut flakes, and on and on.  Pick your favorite combo and through it in the bread!  Use 1/2-3/4 cup for each  "topping"  ingredient.  

Ingredients for banana bread
1/2 stick butter
2 eggs
 3 very ripe bananas
2/3 cup sugar
1 1/3 cup flour
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder

My banana split "toppings"

1/2 cup chocolate chips
3/4 cup frozen organic cherries
1/2 cup crushed pineapple

Mush together all wet ingredients then add dry.  Add fruit topping ingredients last to mix since they will change the color if mixed too much.  Start with the chips and nuts and then add the fruit all at once and mix just enough to combine.  
Pour batter into greased bread pan and bake for 45-55 mintutes on a low setting of 
250 F.  I find the low temp and slower baking helps to keep the bread moist! 

Let cool and top with a scoop of ice cream if you wish with hot fudge and enjoy!!
