Sweet Treats Saturday: Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread

While I know it's going to be hard to top the last banana bread that I made, I constantly have bananas on hand that I just can't seem to eat fast enough.  I was about to go to that previous recipe, but decided to try this one out - just for the cinnamon swirl title alone.  This would be the perfect bread for a brunch or just a yummy breakfast treat.

3 over-ripe bananas, mashed 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

1/3 cup sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Butter and flour a 9x5 loaf pan.
2. Mix bananas, butter, sugar, egg and vanilla together.  Sprinkle baking soda and salt around the top of the banana mixture, then gently stir in the flour until just combined.
3.  In a small bowl, mix together the 1/3 cup sugar and 1 tbsp cinnamon.
4.  Add half of the banana batter to the load pan.  Then sprinkle half of the cinnamon sugar mixture over the batter in the pan.  Repeat with the rest of the batter, covering the top with the remaining cinnamon sugar.  Bake for 50-60 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.


  1. I've just read (and printed) this recipe and my husband is now just about to make it - sounds delicious :)

    1. Can't wait to hear how it turned out!

    2. I forgot to come back here until now. It turned out lovely. I had a tried and tested recipe for banana bread that my husband really liked, but I always found it a bit too banana-ey (!) so he tended to eat most of it. This version was more balanced so we will definitely be making it again. It was also so simple to make.

  2. I have to try this recipe out! I love everything with cinnamon in it ;)
