  • - Hi guys, I'm Jess Lugo

  • and this is celebrity Recipe Royale.

  • Today I'm going to be testing out four celebrity

  • banana bread recipes to find out which one is the best.

  • On today's line up we have

  • Betty White,

  • Lucy Hale,

  • Bebe Rexha,

  • and Chrissy Teigen.

  • So which celebrity has the best banana bread recipe?

  • Let's find out who's bringing in the bread.

  • So first up, everyone's favorite grandma, Betty White.

  • Betty White starts off with peeling

  • and smashing her bananas.

  • Then she puts wheat flour in a bowl, salt, baking powder,

  • baking soda, sugar and mixes it all together.

  • Then she creates a hollow center, adds in her bananas,

  • milk,

  • walnuts

  • and an egg.

  • And mixes it all up together.

  • Super easy.

  • Then she sprays on her pan with vegetable oil

  • and pours in the mixture.

  • Then she bakes it for 50 minutes until golden brown.

  • And voila', Betty White's banana bread.

  • - Just by looking at this

  • I can tell it's definitely made with a white sugar.

  • - This cake looks a little bit dry.

  • - The nuts are nicely throughout the whole thing though.

  • I know that can be difficult

  • with banana bread sometimes things like sink a lot.

  • - Mmm, it's crunchy, I really like crunchy.

  • - I think it's really flavorful.

  • I can definitely taste that banana-y flavor inside of it.

  • - It's got very good like basic,

  • classic banana bread flavor.

  • - I would expect to try this,

  • I would say at a very good bake sale.

  • - If I could give it any criticism

  • I'd say I'd like it to be just a little bit more moist.

  • - I'm sure if you took the recipe and added you know,

  • one more banana that would probably

  • like amp that up a little bit.

  • - But other than that, it's really good.

  • - [Jess] And next up is Lucy Hale.

  • She starts off by whisking three eggs together.

  • Peels her bananas, breaks them up into pieces

  • and throws it right into the mixture.

  • Then she smashes the egg mixture

  • and the bananas all together.

  • She then adds coconut oil, almond flour, baking soda

  • and a whole lot of sugar.

  • Mixes it all up, adds in vanilla extract,

  • greases up her bread pan

  • and then fills up the bread pan

  • a quarter of the way with the bread mixture.

  • She then dollops in almond butter

  • and spreads it around as best as she can.

  • Don't judge here guys.

  • And if that wasn't enough

  • she throws in some dark chocolate chips

  • and then tops it off with the remaining mixture.

  • She bakes it for an hour

  • or until the toothpick comes out clean.

  • And no judgements here guys.

  • Here you have it, Lucy Hales banana bread.

  • - Ooh!

  • - Okay this one looks really dense.

  • - It looks like there's like some kind of chocolate

  • or fruit in it.

  • - It's very moist but crispy on the edges.

  • - Ooh, that's really good. I like the chocolate in there.

  • If I knew somebody was like a chocolate lover

  • and also liked banana bread,

  • I think this is the perfect combination of the two.

  • - Mmm, this is really good actually.

  • - I don't even know what this is but it's so good.

  • - This is a totally different take

  • than the other banana bread.

  • But it's really soft.

  • You can tell it's you know like very fresh,

  • it's very, very moist.

  • - I would definitely get this at a restaurant,

  • probably for dessert.

  • - If I could change anything about it

  • I'd say I'd just want it to be a little bit crispier

  • on the outside.

  • - It's really chocolaty, it's really like fudgy.

  • It's almost like a banana chocolate like brownie texture.

  • - This one's really good,

  • I just keep wanting to keep eating it.

  • - [Jess] Next into the ring, Bebe Rexha.

  • Bebe starts off with mixing flour,

  • baking soda and salt together.

  • Then in a separate bowl she whisks together two eggs.

  • In a blender, yes I said it, a blender,

  • she adds in her butter and brown sugar.

  • And then she blends it together.

  • She then adds in the egg mixture and blends it together.

  • This blender clearly needs some help.

  • So don't forget to mix it together

  • with a fork if need be.

  • She then takes her bananas and smashes them together.

  • She then adds in the smashed bananas,

  • flour and walnuts and blends it all together.

  • Like I said, don't forget to wipe down the sides.

  • Once the mixture is done,

  • she sprays down her bread pan

  • and pours the mixture right in.

  • She then smooths out the top layer evenly

  • right before she throws it into the oven.

  • And she bakes it for 55 minutes.

  • And there you have it, Bebe Rexha's homemade banana bread.

  • - So this one is definitely a more

  • like classic banana bread.

  • - I'm having like banana bread de ja vu.

  • (tinkling sound)

  • This looks exactly like a banana bread I've had before.

  • - I think it actually is a tiny bit on the dry side

  • but I love the crunchiness on the edges.

  • - If the first banana bread and the second banana bread

  • had a child this banana bread would be what it had.

  • - That one doesn't have like the chocolate flavor

  • but it's really like moist,

  • it's really dense but light at the same time.

  • - I would definitely order this at a cafe.

  • - I'm gonna need the recipe.

  • Anywhere that sells this would definitely be my go to spot.

  • - It's got a good crunch to it too at the top of the crust.

  • So you get a couple of different textures.

  • You're getting the soft interior

  • but then like the kind of crusty outside.

  • - [Jess] And last but not least,

  • America's mouth, Chrissy Teigen.

  • Chrissy starts of by peeling and smashing her bananas.

  • She measures them out to two cups,

  • puts them in a bowl and adds in the eggs.

  • She adds in canola oil and mixes it all together.

  • Then she takes flour, baking soda, salt

  • and her lethal weapon, vanilla instant pudding.

  • She mixes together

  • the banana mixture and the dry ingredients.

  • Oh yes, this is what I'm talking about.

  • And if that wasn't good enough

  • she adds in pieces of dark chocolate and shredded coconut.

  • And then mixes it all together.

  • She then butters and flours her Bundt pan.

  • Make sure you get it all good

  • because it won't come out if you don't.

  • Lastly she adds in the mixture.

  • She then puts it into the oven

  • to bake for about 60 to 80 minutes.

  • And just like that, Chrissy Teigen's banana bread.

  • - Ooh, this one looks good.

  • - Really great plating

  • 'cause there's like coconut flakes on top.

  • - Smells on the sweeter side but you still get banana.

  • It's not an over powering sweet.

  • - It definitely tastes healthier

  • than the other banana breads.

  • - The coconut is really good with it.

  • This is really good, wow.

  • - I don't know if I'm necessarily a big fan

  • of the coconut.

  • I think it adds a strange texture.

  • - I make banana bread a lot at home

  • and I've never tried coconut.

  • Don't see any like banana chunk areas which is good

  • but I wish there was a little bit more banana in it.

  • - I like that there's a really good like lightness in it

  • and then there's chocolate to kind of like

  • cut that and make it a little bit more dense.

  • - It's got a really good

  • kind of cake-y crumb structure to it.

  • - Over all this one was really solid, really good.

  • (light music)

  • - [Jess] So which celebrity

  • has the best banana bread recipe?

  • Let's find out.

  • - My favorite is going to have to be number two.

  • It was so moist on the inside and crunchy around the edges.

  • And I think there was some kind of chocolate in it

  • which I really loved about it.

  • Really?

  • I love Lucy Hale, that was really good.

  • - I'm going to have to go with four.

  • That is some really great creativity.

  • Plating was all there, I would expect to find that anywhere.

  • The chocolate and the coconut added a really great touch.

  • Oh my god.

  • Okay well I'm definitely going to need the recipe.

  • - I'd probably say my favorite was number two.

  • I am personally a big chocolate lover

  • and I prefer a moister product.

  • Oh, interesting.

  • - [Jess] Lucy Hale is our banana bread champ.

  • So that was the season finale
