Let’s make banana bread. But like, not just any banana bread, the funnest of fun Funfetti Banana Bread! Colourful sprinkles take this ordinary banana loaf to extraordinary. But let’s not stop there. Should we glaze it and double up on the sprinkles? Yep, the inner 6-year-old in me thinks this is clearly the best choice.

This sprinkled and glazed Funfetti Banana Bread is everything comforting that traditional banana bread is with a twist of fun and excitement that funfetti is known for.

Ain’t Nothing Better Than Banana Bread

I like my banana bread moist and full of banana flavour. Don’t bother me with a loaf that is dry and sparse on bananas. And if you’re gonna have add-ins…let’s really add it in, you know what I mean. A slice of freshly baked banana bread is everything comforting to me and I see no reason to skimpy. Comfort foods should be exactly that…comforting!

Banana Bread Add-Ins

To keep life interesting, this funfetti banana bread forgoes the typical chocolate chips or walnuts and goes full-on sprinkles. Copious sprinkles. Oodles of sprinkles. Sprinkles by the handful. No, I’m just kidding, don’t do sprinkles by the handful, that would be unsanitary. 😉 But clearly, you get the point, I loaded this loaf up with sprinkles.

How To Make Banana Bread Moist

First and foremost, the key to an uber moist and flavourful banana bread is using overripe bananas. Like those brown splotchy soft mushy ones that no one will eat…those are perfect! Peel ’em and toss ’em in the bowl of a stand mixer and let the beater attachment mash it up for you. Start the mixer on low and slowly increase to medium. You want a mashed potato-like consistency. Don’t have a mixer? No problem! Grab a fork or potato masher and get to mashing.

Glaze and More Sprinkles!

To finish this funfetti load of banana yum, I’ve paired it with a classic vanilla glaze and, yep you guessed it, more sprinkles. This glaze is only 3 ingredients: icing sugar, milk, and vanilla. Mix it up as the banana bread is cooling and it will be ready to drizzle, drip, or drown your banana bread within no time. Don’t forget a generous splash of extra sprinkles on top.
