Coke Banana Bread

I’d like to buy the World a Coke Banana Bread – the secret is in that red can.

We have a few cans of Regular Coca-Cola in the fridge from a BuzzFeed shoot. I still have residual eating disorder issues re: drinking calories (I can’t even suck down a smoothie without doing deep breathing exercises).  But I’m totally fine eating them. That’s why I whipped up two recipes – Coke Banana Bread.



…which (WARNING!!!) rises a lot and caused quite a mess in one of the loaves. But boy oh boy, it makes some stellar Banana Bread.  It’s moist and flavorful – and honestly, you do not taste any Coca-Cola whatsoever.

Coke or Pepsi?

Coke Banana Bread


  • 6 bananas, mashed
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1?2 cup coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1?2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1?2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 1?4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup Coke


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Spray two loaf pans with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Mix the eggs, sugar, coconut oil, and vanilla together in one bowl. Add the mashed banana.
  4. Combine the rest of the dry ingredients and mix into the wet. Add the cup of Coke and mix until it's smooth.
  5. Pour into two loaf pans and bake in the oven (on a baking sheet in case they overflow) for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Test with a toothpick to make sure it's done.
  6. Cool for 10-15 minutes before removing from the pan to cool on a wire rack.

    Looks so good! The tofu, too.

    Coke. (Diet or Zero to be exact, please.) Was raised on Pepsi but I discovered the joy of Coke in undergrad. I used to drink the sugary stuff, but now it’s too sweet (and makes my teeth feel fuzzy). So I go for no-cal soft drinks, now, horror stories be damned!

    Used to be pepsi, but after stopping diet pepsi for awhile and trying it again I’ll have to say coke….I guess taste changes with age?
