When it comes to dessert, this recipe has the best of both worlds. Our Carrot Cake Banana Bread is as good as it sounds and we know you'll love it! The homemade carrot cake, banana bread mix is better than anything you can buy in the store, and the cream cheese frosting is the perfect complement to this moist banana bread cake recipe. 

What You'll Need

  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cup mashed ripe bananas (3 to 4 bananas)
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray and dust with flour.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together oil and sugar; add egg and mix well.  In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt.  In another bowl, combine bananas, water, and vanilla.
  3. Add banana mixture to oil and sugar mixture alternately with flour mixture, mixing well after each addition. Stir in carrots and nuts and pour mixture into loaf pan.
  4. Bake 50 to 55 minutes, or until wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. To make Cream Cheese Frosting, in a medium bowl with an electric mixer, beat frosting ingredients until smooth and creamy.  Spread evenly over top of bread and serve or refrigerate until ready to serve (See Tip).

During the pandemic, I have once again found the time to bake. Since my family prefers when I make a carrot cake of a banana bread I found this to be an interesting recipe. It did not disappoint. The flavors came together nicely. I have been asked to make it again.
