I love banana bread. This week I have a couple different recipes for you. This time I found another way to spice it up! This bread is soft, moist, and full of banana flavor. The cinnamon sugar just adds a little something that makes it that much better!
Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread
Recipe Source: SallysBakingAddiction.com
2 cups Flour
3/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup Brown Sugar, not packed
4 Tablespoons Butter, room temp
2 large Eggs
1 1/2 cups mashed Bananas, ripe
1/3 cup Greek Yogurt
1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
1/4 cup Granulated Sugar
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x5 loaf pan.
2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon and whisk. In a large bowl combine the brown sugar and butter and beat together on medium speed until well combined. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each. Add in the banana, greek yogurt, and vanilla and stir with a wooden spoon. Slowly add the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.
3. Pour half of batter into your loaf pan. Sprinkle the cinnamon/sugar over the batter. Pour the rest of the batter on top. Gently swirl with a butter knife. Bake for about 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cool for 15 minutes in the pan and then let cool completely on a wire rack.
