Why are there black specks in bananna bread?

Before the bread is baked, there are no black specks in the batter, but after it's baked, the bread is filled with them. What are they, and why does this happen?

    The little black specks are seeds.bananas are eaten along with the seeds,which are too tiny & innumerable to deal with in in any other way,besides . eating them makes no difference to the taste or quality of the fruit,they stay on in any way that you choose to cook banana.This last bit of information is to set the notion right that a banana tree will grow from seeds,the banana plant is propagated by growing suckers which sprout around the main plant,

    Source(s): Experience as a gardner,I have grown several varietites of babana ,including a 'Cooking Variety " called Bonta ,in the local language.

    When you slice a fresh banana, do you see the black specks? Yes, because you've sliced through the seeds that will make more banana trees, it if falls to the ground and rots into nothing but the seeds. Those are the same specks that survive the baking process in banana bread.

    Source(s): Experience teaches.

    Those are the little seeds from the banana's. After heating these seeds they get darker.

    Well if you put walnuts in the bread then its the skins. Also, bananas naturally darken when cooked.

    Those are spider eggs. Whatever you do, DON'T EAT THEM.
