Method

Caramelized Banana Bread 8 Steps

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350°F, and generously grease a 8.5” x 4.5” loaf pan, line with parchment, and sprinkle with a thin layer of turbinado sugar, set aside.

  • Step 2

    In a large bowl, add unsalted butter and three bananas, and mash thoroughly with the back of a fork until completely smooth. Set one banana aside for garnish.

  • Step 3

    Whisk in white sugar and dark brown sugar until well combined. Then add eggs in one at a time, and mix well.

  • Step 4

    Add in the sour cream, vanilla extract, kosher salt and baking soda and stir until combined and smooth.

  • Step 5

    Add in the all-purpose flour and stir with a spatula until the batter just comes together and no large flour pockets remain. If using semi-sweet chocolate chips or chopped nuts, add them in now, being careful not to over-mix.

  • Step 6

    Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and smooth it out. Cut a banana lengthwise and place it cut side up on top of the batter. Sprinkle generously with remaining turbinado sugar.

  • Step 7

    Bake in preheated oven for 45-55 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the centre of the bread comes out clean.

  • Step 8

    Cool in the pan for about 10 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

Note: 2 Steps

  • Step 1

    Banana bread can be kept in an air-tight container for up to 1 week in the fridge, or at room temperature for up to 4-5 days.

  • Step 2

    A great reheating method is to pan fry it in butter until golden brown on both sides.
