Cinnamon-Sugar Banana Bread

You know when you come across a good recipe and you just have to make it over and over.

Well I have always said that one of my all time favorite recipes to make is my grandmother’s recipes for Banana Bread.

CInnamon Sugar Banana bread






















I mean nothing makes a house smell better then homemade banana bread baking in the oven on a cold day.  I’m always thinking of different ways to change or mix up such a classic.  I sometimes add chocolate chips, peanut butter, nutella, and even banana bread with brown sugar cream cheese frosting — YUM!

This time I chose to add cinnamon-sugar inside of the banana bread and let me just say I think I hit it on the nose!!!!!



This banana bread recipe is already so moist and melt in your mouth and with the added cinnamon sugar swirl in the middle completely just melts in your mouth.  Plus the top has that added sweet crunch because of the cinnamon-sugar sprinkled on top.  It makes such a difference from ordinary banana bread and makes it that much special.
