Have some overripe bananas on your counter? Don’t know what to do with them? How about making a classic loaf of banana bread with a butterscotch twist? When the bread bakes the butterscotch chips make little pockets full of flavor throughout.
If you follow my blog you will know that I’m not a big baker. I’m getting better but I still prefer a quick no bake dessert over breaking out the cake pans. However this bread is so easy and comes out of the oven so perfect that I find myself making it over and over again. The inside ends up being soft and moist and the outside gets a slightly crunchy crust. This combination has me making this treat at least every other week.
Since I started making this banana bread recipe I’ve realized there is no better smell than something like bread baking in the oven. Sweet and buttery almost. Reminds me of growing up and my mom making big bowls and loaf after loaf of zucchini bread. While I can’t get my boys to touch the stuff they do love banana bread. They might eat it at night or even in the morning for breakfast with strawberries. Now on to the recipe.
You cannot go wrong with this simple recipe. With a fork mush the overripe bananas. In separate bowl melt the butter and whisk the egg. Add to the bananas. Now mix in the remaining ingredients: sugar, vanilla, baking soda, salt and flour then stir to combine. Finally add the butterscotch chips. Grease one loaf pan with butter or oil then add the batter.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Sniff the air over and over again while it bakes. Serve warm with lots of butter. And here you are……
