  • 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


  • 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.
