HOW TO MAKE CINNAMON SWIRLED BANANA BREAD
Step 1: Prepare the oven by preheating it to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan.
Step 2: Melt the butter in a large bowl and let it cool for a bit. In the same bowl, whisk the sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Add the flour and baking soda and stir. Fold in the mashed bananas until just mixed.
Step 3: Stir the cinnamon sugar swirl ingredients in a small bowl with a fork until well-combined.
Step 4: In the bottom of the greased and floured pan, spread evenly the 1/4 of the batter. Scoop 1/4 of the cinnamon-sugar mixture over the batter and make a thick swirl using a table knife or bottom of a wooden spoon. Then, pour the 1/3 of the remaining batter over the top layer and again swirl half of the remaining cinnamon-sugar mixture. Spread the remaining batter over the last layer and make large cinnamon-sugar swirls throughout the whole loaf. Put 6 thinly sliced bananas down the middle of the batter.
Step 5: Put the loaf pan on a baking sheet. Place inside the oven and bake for 60-70 minutes or until golden brown. Test the doneness by inserting a toothpick in the middle, once it comes out clean the bread is done. Don’t remove the bread yet from the pan, let it cool first for at least 30 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.
