Unicorn Bread Loaf Recipe

The mashed bananas make for that delicious banana bread flavoring that we’ve all come to love and enjoy. I also love that it adds some health benefits to our tummies, too! I love to let this cool a bit on a wire rack once it’s done baking and I’m amazed at how the smell has everyone sprinting for the kitchen!

My boys really like this unicorn loaf recipe because not only is it delicious but it’s also super fun to look at as well. Top it with some melted butter or a slight sprinkling or brown sugar to make it a unique slice of bread.

How do you keep homemade bread for drying out?

There tends to be a love/hate relationship with fresh bread from a lot of people. The flavoring is amazing but it doesn’t stay as soft for as long as bread that you buy from the store. (It’s because it’s not full of preservatives like store-bought bread!)

All you need to do is keep it in a sealed bag or container to keep it fresh. Air will dry it out and you can stop that with the right supplies.

How to you know bread is done baking in the oven?

Use the toothpick test! After the bread has been baked for the time on the directions, put a clean toothpick in the middle of the bread and pull it back out. If it comes out clean, the bread is done baking and ready to be taken from the oven. If there is still batter, it needs some more baking time!
