Banana CInnamon Bread

cinnamon quick bread

Banana bread with a cinnamon twist. This one was a big hit with my family.

3 ripe bananas
1/3 cup melted butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg beaten
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups flour

Cinnamon swirl insert
1/3 cup sugar
2 Tbs cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 350. Spray or grease a 9 x 5 loaf pan.

Blend the bananas, butter, sugar, egg and vanilla until well blended. You will probably have some small banana chunks and that’s ok. Add the baking soda and salt and flour.

Put half of the mixture into the loaf pan. Mix the cinnamon and sugar together and sprinkle over the mixture in the loaf pan reserving a tablespoon or so for the top. Put the remaining mixture over the cinnamon sugar in the loaf pan and sprinkle the left over sugar cinnamon on top.

Bake for about 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in to the middle comes out clean. Let cool an remove from pan.
