Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread

Last week I bought some gelato from a local shop that packaged it up in mason jars to help rebuild our Zoo (we had some major flooding in our city last spring which unfortunately damaged a lot of our city) At first I questioned the flavor "Banana Cinnamon Animal Cracker", but after trying it I got hooked. Needless to say that it inspired to wonder down the banana cinnamon road, which lead me to this yummy recipe.

A twist on a old favorite, delicious moist banana bread with a little cinnamon surprise in the middle.

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp of vanilla
  • 1/4 cup of light sour cream or greek yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp of skim milk
  • 2 very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 1/2 tsp of baking soda
  • 1 cup of  flour
  • 4 tbsp of cinnamon mixed with white sugar

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, grease a loaf pan.

2. In a large bowl or kitchen aid, combine sugar, egg, vanilla, sour cream/yogurt, milk and banana. Add the salt, baking soda and flour.

3. Pour half of the batter into the pan. Then evenly sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar mixture on top. I made mine so that no batter was showing, but it just depends how much pf a swirl you want. Pour the remaining batter over the cinnamon layer and bake for 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool before cutting.
