I know what you are thinking .. red velvet and bananas, really, it can't be so???? I thought the same thing. I read Ashton's post about her Red Velvet Banana Bread on her Something Swanky blog a couple times to make sure she really thought this combination tasted good. And yes, after several re-reads I still questioned the combo. So I tired it myself. Oh my goodness!! It's an amazing banana bread with a hint of red velvet. It's hard to explain. Make it and try it yourself. It's only 4 ingredients. And everyone always has leftover bananas that they don't know what to do with, right? Try it .. really, it's awesome!
