Cinnamon Banana Bread Recipe
What is the best thing to do when your bananas start to turn to inedible straight from the peel? Make banana bread of course. I had three bananas left that were turning and so of course I wanted to make some banana bread but could not find my recipe anywhere. I am actually kind of glad because this one that I am going to share with you is so much better than my old one. And it is so easy that you don't need a mixer and instead just a wooden spoon.
How amazing does that look? I was so proud of myself that it came straight out of the pan without breaking or sticking. Go one for the non stick method that I got from my mother recently. It is so moist and the top is not crusty at all and is more of a gooey texture which I love. It kind of reminds me of eating cake and just thinking about it it would taste so good with some cream cheese frosting on it. Think I need to make another one :) Apparently this is so good that my picky three year old actually likes it. Score one for mom.
1/3 cup melted unsalted butter
3-4 ripe bananas
1 cup sugar
1 egg beaten
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups flour
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C)
2. Grease your loaf pan using whichever method you use and set to the side until it is needed.
3. In a large bowl and with a wooden spoon mash up bananas and mix in melted butter.
4. Mix sugar, egg, vanilla, cinnamon, baking soda and salt into the banana / butter mixture.
5. Once everything is completely mixed together start adding in the flour bit by bit until it is finally mixed in.
6. Next pour the mixture into your greased loaf pan using a spatula to scrape down the sides of the bowl.
7. Place into the preheated oven and bake for 35-40 minutes or until you can stick a toothpick or knife into it and have it come out clean.
You can definitely add nuts to this recipe but I keep everything in my house nut free since my son is highly allergic to them. But walnuts would really go well in it if you like them or even pecans.
What is your favorite kind of non sandwich bread or dessert bread? If you like banana bread than I hope you give this recipe a try and if you do I would love to know what you thought of it. You can even post a picture of it to my Facebook page.
