What do banana bread and chocolate chip cookies have in common? They are both foods that I will ALWAYS try a new recipe for! That isn't because I haven't found "the one" yet, but mostly because I am always curious to see if the new recipe can top "the one".
This banana bread combines your basic banana bread with a snickerdoodle. Seriously, how can that be wrong?
LOVE this bread and will definitely be making it again!
Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread
Recipe from Lovin' From The Oven
For the bread:
3 over-ripe bananas, smashed up
1/3 cup melted butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
dash of salt
1 1/2 cups flour
For the swirl:
1/3 cup sugar
1 Tbs cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350. Butter and four a loaf pan. Mine was 9 x 5, but you could use any sort, I suppose. Just keep a close eye on it in the oven, and adjust the time as needed
Mix bananas, butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla together. sprinkle baking soda and salt around on top of the banana mixture. Then gently stir in flour. Be careful not to over-mix!
In a small dish, mix together the 1/3 cup sugar and 1 Tbs cinnamon.
Add 1/2 of the batter to the loaf pan and then sprinkle half, or a little more than half of the cinnamon-sugar mixture all over the batter in the pan. Add the rest of the batter, and then sprinkle the leftover cinnamon-sugar on top.
Bake for 50-60 minutes, but remember, if you’re using a different-sized loaf pan, be careful and keep a close eyeball on it!
