    Quick: Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread

    Source of Recipe

    Recipe is adapted from Sandwich Hoss.

    Recipe Introduction

    Make sure to use overly ripe bananas-- it makes a difference!

    List of Ingredients

    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!
