Take it in folks. That’s some serious caramel action going on here today. I mean, as if banana bread wasn’t already the most perfect comfort food, I went and added caramel to it.

The heavens have opened and it’s raining Caramel Banana Bread.

I think this is my favorite quick bread that I’ve made to date. Even more than my grandma’s Famous Zucchini Bread or my Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Banana Bread.

Did you know that today is National Caramel Day? I didn’t but I think it might be my new favorite day ever. I needed a recipe to share and this Caramel Banana Bread was the first thing that came to mind. I wasn’t sure how it would come out since caramel can be kind of sticky to bake with, but it is fantastic!

Of course banana bread is the best way to use out ripened bananas, but did you know that you can also “ripen” them yourself? You can! Just use this method and in minutes you’ll have bananas ready to smash and this Caramel Banana Bread will be cooling on your counter in about an hour.

Caramel Banana Bread

Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 1 hr
Total Time 1 hr 15 mins
Servings 10 slices

Ingredients
  

  • ½ cup butter softened at room temperature
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1 tablespoon nonfat milk
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup caramel sauce + more for drizzling, if desired

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line a 9-inch loaf pan with parchment paper and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Cream the sugar and butter in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • In a small bowl, mash the bananas (Pro top - use a potato masher!). Mix in the milk and cinnamon.
  • In another bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Add the banana mixture to the creamed mixture and stir until combined. Add dry ingredients, mixing just until flour disappears.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan. Pour caramel sauce over the top of the batter and swirl in with a knife.
  • Bake 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Set aside to cool on a rack for 15 minutes. Remove bread from pan, and cool completely on a baking rack before slicing. Drizzle with more caramel, if desired.
