  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1 cup butter (divided: ½ cup melted, ½ cup softened)
  • 2 ¼ tsp active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water (110°F)
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cooked shrimp, chopped
  • 1 cup pepperoni slices, chopped
  • 1 tsp salt


  1. In a small bowl, combine the warm water and sugar. Sprinkle the yeast over the top and let it sit for about 5 minutes until frothy. Use the frother if needed to ensure the yeast is well-mixed.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas using a fork or a potato masher until smooth.
  3. Add the melted butter to the mashed bananas and mix well using the mixer.
  4. Pour the frothy yeast mixture into the banana-butter mixture and stir until well combined.
  5. Gradually add the flour and salt to the wet mixture, mixing continuously until a dough forms.
  6. Gently fold in the chopped shrimp and pepperoni slices into the dough using a spatula.
  7. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead for about 5-7 minutes until smooth and elastic. Use the kneader if available.
  8. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a clean towel, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour or until doubled in size.
  9. Punch down the dough, then shape it into a loaf or divide it into smaller rolls, depending on your preference.
  10. Place the shaped dough onto a baking sheet or into a loaf pan, cover again, and let it rise for another 30 minutes.
  11. Preheat your furnace (oven) to 375°F (190°C).
  12. Bake the dough in the preheated furnace for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. A toothpick inserted into the center should come out clean.
  13. Allow the bread to cool on a wire rack before slicing and serving.
