John’s Favorite Cinnamon Banana Bread

1

May 10, 2012 by blackbirdideas

I have said it before… I eat a ton of bananas. So with all of the leftover bananas, I have been trying out different types of banana breads. The first one, Cranberry Banana Bread, was a huge hit. The second one, Chocolate Banana Bread, was my personal favorite (yeah, John doesn’t “like” chocolate. I think its crazy too). But the last one, Cinnamon Banana bread was John’s favorite. And I have to say… it doesn’t suck. Not even a little. Imagine waking up to a slice of this each morning for a week. Perfect with a little cup ‘o joe.

Here is what you need:

I followed the basic outline for my other banana bread recipes.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

It starts with mashing 2 ripe bananas to mush in a large bowl. Have your butter melting in a pot over low heat while you mash. It’ll kill two birds with one stone.

Then pour the melted butter in with the bananas. Stir to combine.

Add just a pinch of salt to off-set the sweetness.

Then dump in the sugar and the vanilla.

Crack the egg in and stir to combine.

Last dump in your whole wheat flour and baking soda.

Oh, and the cinnamon. Can’t forget the cinnamon… after all it is Cinnamon Bread. 

Stir that glorious spice all together. I love cinnamon. I love the way it smells… I love the way  it tastes… I love the way it reminds me of my mom’s cinnamon sugar toast….mmmm.

Then pour the batter into your greased loaf pan. You can spray it with pan or wipe it down with a little pad of butter. Whatever you want.

Then sprinkle on a mixture of sugar and cinnamon to the top. This one step is what makes this bread rock. I tried sprinkling it on with a spoon…

And ended up with a bunch of sugary mounds on top of my bread. So I switched to sprinkling by hand. This made for much more consistency with the sugar topping.

Place bread in the 350 degree oven for 1 hour. Your house will smell delicious!

Oh banana bread, how cheap, easy and wonderful you are. Give it a try!
