HOLIDAY RECIPE: Red Velvet Banana Bread

Do you enjoy making holiday treats for loved ones or neighbors? Then you need to try this Red Velvet Banana Bread recipe we've found! It’s like banana bread and red velvet cake all at the same time. Add some character to it by drizzling with white chocolate and Christmas colored sprinkles!

Red Velvet Banana Bread is easy to make, and this recipe makes 5 loaves, perfect for a holiday gift! 
  • 2 red velvet cake mixes (I used 2 (16.5 oz) Duncan Hines red velvet cake mixes)
  • 6 eggs
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 6 very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 (12 oz.) package semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 8 ounces white candy melts
  • Sprinkles
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 5 (8" x 3 3/4" x 2 1/2") loaf pans with parchment paper. Spray with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Place first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. With an electric mixer, beat on low for 20 seconds, then turn up speed to medium and mix for 2 minutes. Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts. Pour batter into loaf pans. Bake for 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let cool.
  3. Place candy melts in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for 1-2 minutes or until completely melted. Stir until smooth. Pour into a clear plastic pastry bag. Cut the tip off and drizzle melted candy over the cooled bread. Let the candy melts set (about 20-30 minutes).
  4. For a gift, wrap in clear plastic wrap. Tie a bow around it and add gift tag. Store at room temperature for 24 hours or in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
Happy Holiday's from Wentz Orthodontics!
