Banana Bread

Well since I have something as fancy as Avocado loaf on here I might as well also include my homey little recipe for Banana Bread.  Now I like to make my banana bread with a little something extra baked inside of it, chocolate chips are an easy go to but I'll be putting my banana bread with strudel recipe here.  It looks like a normal loaf from the outside but once it is cut open there are light swirls of cinnamon and sugar baked right in, it is awesome with some butter and served warm.

Banana Bread


2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 eggs
4 soft and mashed bananas
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup canola oil

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon all spice


Preheat oven to 350°F and prepare your loaf pan

In a small bowl whisk the 1/2 cup of brown sugar, with the 1/2 teaspoon each of cinnamon, nutmeg and all spice, set aside, this is your strudel mix.

In a medium bowl whisk the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg together, set aside.

In a large bowl beat the oil with the brown sugar and eggs. Stir in the mashed bananas  till reasonably smooth.

Pour the flour mixture into the banana mixture and stir with a wooden spoon till combined.   Pour about 1/3 of the banana bread batter into your loaf pan, next sprinkle 1/3 of the strudel mix on top of the batter. Pour in another 1/3 of the batter and top with 1/3 of the strudel, and repeat with the final third.  Bake the load for about 45-55 minutes.

Serve warm with butter for best results.
