Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread

Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread

by Pam on June 16, 2013

My kids were having friends over to play so I decided to make them some banana bread. I wanted to try something different and found a recipe for a cinnamon swirl banana bread at Lovin’ From The Oven[1] that looked and sounded delicious. I adapted the recipe a bit by adding cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg to the batter. It was quite easy to make and made my house smell absolutely incredible while it baked. I served the bread with a big plate of fresh fruit for a tasty and fun afternoon snack that all of the kids loved.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat a small loaf pan with cooking spray.

Mix the mashed bananas, butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla together with a beater until creamy.

Combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and salt together in a separate bowl then mix well. Gently add the flour mixture into the banana mixture until just combined. Don’t over mix.

Mix together the 1/3 cup sugar and 1 tablespoon of cinnamon.

Add half of the batter to the loaf pan and then sprinkle more than half of the cinnamon-sugar mixture all over the batter in the pan.

Add the rest of the batter, and then sprinkle the leftover cinnamon-sugar on top.

Bake for 55-65 minutes, or until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven then let it cool for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to finish cooling. Slice and serve with butter if desired. Enjoy.
