Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread

I had to use some bananas and I was tired of the same old here is a new one!

 3 over-ripe bananas, mashed

1/3 cup melted butter

3/4 cup sugar

1 egg, beaten

1 teaspoons vanilla

1 teaspoons baking soda

pinch of salt

1 1/2 cups flour

Cinnamon Swirl:

1/3 cup sugar

1 tablespoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350. Butter and flour a loaf pan.

Mix bananas, butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla together. Add baking soda and salt. Add the flour and combine, but don’t over-mix. 

In a small dish, mix together the 1/3 cup sugar and 1 tablespoon cinnamon.

Add ½ of the batter to the loaf pan and then sprinkle a little over ½ of the cinnamon and sugar mixture all over the batter in the pan. Add the rest of the batter, and then sprinkle the leftover cinnamon and sugar on top. **I did not use the entire amount of cinnamon on the top. It seems to be A LOT!!! **

Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until golden brown on top. Cool, cut and enjoy~
