Yields: 8 pieces of banana bread

  • 1 teaspoon ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3-4 very ripe, darkly speckled bananas, mashed well (about 1 1/2 cups)

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Pink, blue, green and yellow food coloring

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix flour, granulated sugar, light brown sugar, ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda, and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat eggs until light. Add vegetable oil, vanilla extract, sour cream and mashed bananas, mixing thoroughly. The kids will love this part!
  4. Sift in dry ingredients and mix to combine.
  5. Divide batter into four bowls. Add 12 drops of food coloring to each bowl and mix. The colors are up to you — go for a full rainbow, or maybe a unicorn theme. Let the kids get creative.
