Banana bread first became a standard feature of American cookbooks with the popularization of baking soda and baking powder in the 1930s, and appears in Pillsbury's 1933 Balanced Recipes cookbook. The origin of the first banana bread recipe is unknown, though some speculate it was originated in the 18th century by housewives experimenting with pearlash. The home baking revival of the 1960s and the simplicity of its recipe led to an explosion in banana bread's popularity.
