Cinnamon and Brown Sugar Banana Bread
Banana bread is one of my favorite recipes to bake. It's simple, moist, and sweet. Plus, you can get away with eating it at any time of day. I decided to take my favorite banana bread recipe and tweak it so that it had a little more pizzazz. I love Yammie's Noshery's banana bread recipe, which you can find here:
To make my banana bread, I used her recipe with just a couple of differences. My changes are in bold letters.
-3 brown bananas (1 cup mashed)
-1 cup sugar
-1 cup all-purpose flour
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-3/4 teaspoon baking soda
-1/2 teaspoon baking powder
-1 teaspoon cinnamon
-1/4 cup brown sugar (approximately)
-1/2 cup vegetable oil
-1 teaspoon vanilla
Yammie tells you to make it in a gallon zip lock bag, which is a great idea. I didn't have any big zip lock bags, however, so I just mixed the ingredients together in a bowl. The great thing about this recipe is that you can easily mix it by hand with a fork; you don't even need an electric mixer or whisk. Here are the baking steps: (my changes to the recipe are bold)
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and mash the bananas.
2. Mix in the eggs.
3. Add the sugar.
4. Add the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon.
9. Cool and dust a small amount of brown sugar on the top.
This bread turned out really well! It tastes like banana bread with a little extra cinnamon-y sweetness. Enjoy!
