Banana Bread has always been a one of my favorite “quick breads” and a Banana Split is a classic dessert treat.  So I got to thinking, how can I bring all these great flavors together?  Then, Banana Split Bread was born!

Keep reading for the recipe…

This recipe is easy and fun to prepare.  Start with a Banana Bread mix, but instead of adding water, use a can of crushed pineapples packed in juice.  Toss in some nuts, chocolate chips, and, of course, some maraschino cherries!  When it comes out of the oven and cools, top with an ooey-gooey chocolate drizzle.  This is a fun treat by the slice, or you could serve it with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream!
