Mars Bar Banana Bread


Nom nom nom.

That's the sound of me eating mars bar banana bread.

It's really, really good.

Moist, bananary, caramely, chocolaty goodness.

I've had it bookmarked for a while, and I've also had 3 rather over ripe bananas sitting in the freezer, just begging to be baked with.

See that piece of mars bar sitting in there?? Oh yeahhh that's what I'm talking bout!!

When you take a bite of this bread, every so often you get this little burst of chocolate, and caramel and it really just makes life worth living.


Recipe from


  • 150g butter
  • 1/2 cup (100g) brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 bananas, mashed (I used 3)
  • 2 cups (300g) self-raising flour
  • 3 x 60g Mars Bars, chopped (I used 3 king size, because there's no such thing as too much - and they were on offer too hehe)
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) milk


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a 7 x 11 x 21cm loaf pan with non-stick baking paper (I didn't use baking paper, I just greased the tin......should have because a piece of mars bar got stuck to the bottom and left a good chunk of the cake in the tin. Whoops). Beat butter and brown sugar until pale and creamy. Beat in eggs and mashed bananas.
  2. Combine flour and Mars Bars. Fold into the butter mixture with milk. Spoon into pan. Bake for 50-55 minutes. Set aside to cool, then cut and enjoy!!
