Butterscotch is underrated.
I think that most people associate butterscotch with Grandmas…
But I love both Grandmas and butterscotch.
I’m not saying that if you don’t love butterscotch you automatically don’t love Grandmas…
Lets transition from Grandmas to baking.
I love banana bread with all of my being. It is a comfort food for me that reminds me of my childhood x 1000.
My mom makes the best banana bread/muffins in the world.
But I’m not sharing that recipe with you…
It is currently a secret.
So when I came across a recipe for a banana bread with a butterscotch swirl, I had to try it.
And let me tell you. It is AMAZING. The Butterscotch adds a sweet and buttery flavor to the banana bread and makes it more like a cake rather than a bread.
Eat it right out of the oven. Or microwave it. Just make sure it’s warm
To die for…
It’s a super simple recipe and this is all you need. (Plus buttermilk. Mine was in the fridge).
Apparently Mikey never eats bananas. Ours always turn brown and I have to put them in the freezer where they turn black. Black bananas are ok though. They look awful. But they won’t kill you, I promise.
I guess I should find out if Mikey likes bananas…Who am I kidding?
Mikey likes everything.
Using a double boiler, melt some butterscotch chips.
Set that aside and mix up your butter and sugar.
Then add your eggs
Next mash up your bananas
What looks and smells like baby food???
This bowl of banana mush does!
Add the banana, buttermilk and vanilla to your batter.
Now take a cup of batter and add it to the melted butterscotch
This is some delicious batter right here.
Then you add half the banana batter, followed by the butterscotch batter, and topped with the rest of the banana batter. That sounds way confusing.
Make a butterscotch batter sandwich.
The heavenly aroma that will fill your house is like no other.
Check out this beautiful loaf of butterscotch banana bread.
Sorry I went a bit overboard with the photos…
Mikey approved of this bread.
Which means most people will (he doesn’t love sweet things but was a huge fan of this).
Butterscotch Banana Bread
½ cups Butterscotch-flavored Chips
¼ cups Unsalted Butter, At Room Temperature
½ cups Granulated Sugar
2 whole Large Eggs
1 cup Mashed Over Ripe Bananas, About 3 Medium
⅓ cups Buttermilk, Lowfat
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
2 cups All-purpose, Unbleached Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
½ teaspoons Kosher Salt
⅛ teaspoons Baking Soda
Melt the butterscotch chips in a small bowl over simmering water. Set aside and let cool to room temperature.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Oil and flour a non stick loaf pan.
In a large bowl, beat the butter with the sugar with an electric mixer until crumbly. Add in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix in mashed banana, buttermilk, and vanilla extract.
In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Mix to combine.
Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Remove 1 cup of batter to the small bowl with the melted butterscotch chips. Mix well with a hand mixer.
Pour half of the banana bread batter on the bottom of the loaf pan. Pour the butterscotch batter over the banana bread batter. Top with the rest of the banana bread batter and smooth the top.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 50–60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes, then remove to the wire rack to cool completely.
I randomly found this recipe on the Tasty Kitchen website.
