Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread

This Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread is basically the same recipe as my One Bowl Banana Bread recipe with the addition of the cinnamon swirl.  I love how the top of the bread has a baked cinnamon sugar crust.   The bread is moist and delicious as usual, enjoy!

Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread

3 or 4 ripe bananas, mashed
1/3 cup butter, melted (I microwave in a bowl for about 45 seconds.)
¾ cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
1 ½ cup flour
Ingredients for Cinnamon Swirl
¼ cup sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Spray a loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray.

In a large mixing bowl, mash peeled bananas with a fork.

Mix in butter, sugar, egg and vanilla. 

Next, add in baking soda, salt and flour.

Pour half the batter into greased loaf pan.    

Sprinkle a layer of cinnamon sugar mixture evenly on top of batter.

Pour remaining batter over cinnamon sugar layer.

Sprinkle remaining cinnamon sugar mixture evenly on top.

Bake for one hour or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
