 My bread is always loaded with rich banana flavor because I use really ripe bananas.  As much as we love bananas, it seems we still have some that don’t get eaten and turn brown super fast so I just mash them in one cup servings and stick them in a ziplock freezer bag for future use.

In another bowl, mix your wet ingredients…

3/4 cup oil

1 teaspoon vanilla

Be sure to let it cool about 10 minutes before removing it from the pan.  And then if you can wait until it cools completely, it is easier to slice but oh my it is hard to be patient after smelling this cinnamon banana yumminess baking for an hour!

    Now that’s mean, showing that banana swirl cinnamon bread when I’m really hungry for something home made that’s really good. Had to pin this recipe for not too long from now, oh boy does it ever look good. Love that it’s made from scratch not a mix. Great recipe. Happy weekend

      Hey Jane! This post was hard to write tonight because I am trying not to eat before bed and the pictures were making my mouth water! It’s extra hard knowing I have this yummy bread all sliced up in the freezer! I am determined to hold out til morning. It is suppose to be storming tomorrow so I cannot wait to warm up a slice and enjoy with a cup of coffee as I sit and listen to the rain 🙂 Wish I could send you a slice through the internet!

    I think their is an error in the recipe. Baking powder is listed twice. Should one be baking soda instead of baking powder. I’d like to make this but need a clarification first.

      Thanks Donna for pointing this out, I fixed it with – 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 🙂

    Hi, recipe calls for baking powder twice. Do you mean part baking soda and part baking powder?

    1. joyfuldaisyforever@gmail.com

      Hi Patti, yep it is baking soda on the second measurement 🙂
