Chocolate Stout Banana Bread

Recipe PictureBERWIN87 - BABS. BEER. FOOD.

Servings: 12

Cooking: 45 minutes

The original recipe uses Terrapin Moo-Hoo, I like making it with Pensacola Bay Brewery Blackbeard Stout.


  • 2 medium Ripe Bananas (super ripe is best)
  • 1/2 cup Chocolate Stout
  • 1/2 cup Vegetable Oil
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon Salt


  1. Heat your oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan. You can grease it with vegetable oil or spray with Pam.
  2. Peel and cut bananas into 1/2 inch rounds to make them easier to mash. Using a potato masher, mash your bananas into a pulp.
  3. Once your bananas are smooth (a few chunks are ok) add the Chocolate Stout, Vegetable Oil and Sugar. Crack your eggs into a separate bowl and stir to break up the yolk. Add the eggs to your Banana mixture and stir to blend everything together.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together the Flour, Cinnamon, Baking Soda, Baking Powder, and Salt. Add the Banana
  5. Mixture to your dry ingredients and mix well. A few lumps are ok.
  6. Pour your final mixture into your loaf pan.
  7. Place the loaf pan on the middle oven rack and bake for 40-50 minutes. When a tester inserted into the middle comes out clean, the bread is cooked through.

Variation, only available in the fall: replace the bananas with 1/2 can of pumpkin (not pie filling) and replace the Stout with Pumpkin Vanilla Porter.
