Have some overripe bananas on your counter? Make this Butterscotch Banana bread with little pockets of butterscotch 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.
You cannot go wrong with this simple quick bread recipe.
How to make Butterscotch Banana Bread:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, add the bananas, sugar, eggs, melted butter, baking soda, salt, and vanilla.
Mix the ingredients together. Then add the flour to the base.
Mix in the flour. 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……
