“Banana bread is technically fruitcake”

A banana is a fruit, so some people have argued that banana bread is technically fruitcake.

“Banana bread is just fruitcake with better fruit” was posted on Twitter by Tim McMackin on October 9, 2015. “Banana bread is fruitcake #FridayThoughts #ChangeMyMind” was posted on Twitter by Yung Dad Toes on May 10, 2019. “Banana bread is a type of fruitcake” was posted on Twitter by Cathy Erway 韋凱琳 on December 5, 2019. “Banana Bread is technically Fruitcake” was posted on Reddit—Showerthoughts on May 16, 2021.

“Banana bread is not fruitcake” was posted on Twitter by Steph Willems on November 21, 2017. “Fruitcake is a type of cake using DRIED or CANDIED fruits (plus other things). Banana bread is a quick bread and uses fresh fruit. In the word smithing world, these look (terrifyingly) similar. But in the baking world, they are (thankfully) different” was posted on Twitter by David Crandall on December 5, 2019.


Wikipedia: Fruitcake
Fruitcake (or fruit cake or fruit bread) is a cake made with candied or dried fruit, nuts, and spices, and optionally soaked in spirits. In the United Kingdom, certain rich versions may be iced and decorated.

Wikipedia: Banana
A banana is an elongated, edible fruit – botanically a berry – produced by several kinds of large herbaceous flowering plants in the genus Musa. In some countries, bananas used for cooking may be called “plantains”, distinguishing them from dessert bananas. The fruit is variable in size, color, and firmness, but is usually elongated and curved, with soft flesh rich in starch covered with a rind, which may be green, yellow, red, purple, or brown when ripe.

Why everyone baking banana bread...it’s like...the meatloaf of desserts. Leftovers smashed together, less flavor than the original components. Banana bread is stinky fruitcake.

So you’re saying banana bread is like fruitcake? I happen to like good exemplars of both, but agree that many examples are not worth the calories.
