  • Scoop a dollop of the second mixture into each of the empty spaces to create a checker board pattern
  • Go back to the first mixture and create a second layer alternating colours– meaning, if a light coloured square is on the bottom, put a dark coloured square on top.
  • Repeat the pattern for a third and final layer with all the remaining batter. marble swirl banana bread recipe- vegan + gluten free

    This was awful. It took a lot more time to bake and 2 cups of milk is way too much. The loaf fell in and was not done after 60 minutes! I will never make this again wasted all those ingredients!

      Sorry this didn’t work out for you. I’ve tried this recipe a few times and it worked great so not sure why this happened. Follow instructions exactly, no subs and ensure it has fully cooled before slicing.

    Baking soda or powder? Under “you will need” you say baking powder. However, under “ingredients” you say baking soda. Which is it? That may be why the loaf didn’t work for the previous person who commented.

      Nice spot! It was baking powder, I have corrected this!
