Banana and Cinnamon Sugar Swirled Bread.

Banana and Cinnamon Sugar Swirled Bread.

Be prepared to fill your kitchen with the most wonderful aroma with this unusual take on banana bread.
What do you do when you have a bunch of overly ripe bananas? Make banana bread of course!
This recipe is simply delicious and easy too. It is moist, wonderfully soft yet still sofilling that a chunky slice will leave you feeling satisfied.
My family and I have been enjoying it so much that I had to make another loaf just a day after baking the first. This banana bread is great for breakfast or as an afternoon snack, especially when smothered in butter.

Add more or less cinnamon depending on your own tastes, I add more as I love it but test it out and see what you like best!

Use the ripest of bananas as it really does affect the taste and the combination of flavours.

You can add nuts, fruit or chocolate to this recipe and don’t be afraid to play around with flavours.
