The recipe for this banana batter came from "My African Cookbook" - the recipe is for muffins, but I decided to turn it into a loaf...with a touch of cinnamon! The top of the loaf is covered in cinnamon and sugar, making it crispy and delicious!
Even better...a cinnamon/sugar ribbon inside.
Cinnamon Banana Loaf
3 large ripe bananas
3/4 C. sugar
1/3 C. melted butter
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 C. flour
1/4 C. sugar
1 T. cinnamon
Mash bananas, and mix in sugar, egg, and melted butter.
Add the baking soda, baking powder, salt, and flour. Combine.
In a separate bowl, mix the sugar and cinnamon.
Grease a loaf pan. Pour half the batter into the pan, then sprinkle half the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Pour in the remaining batter, and top with the remaining cinnamon mixture.
Bake at 350 for 45 min., or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Enjoy for breakfast...lunch...dinner...dessert...snack...tea time...
