This Banana Bread is the best. Really!
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Add all your dry ingredients into a bowl (flour, baking soda, salt, and spices). Stir to blend.
Mash up your bananas on a plate to have them ready.
In a mixer, cream together your brown sugar and butter. Add the eggs and vanilla and blend until mixed well, making sure to scrape down the sides of your bowl. Add the mashed bananas and blend until mixed well.
Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and stir until just combined. You don’t want to over mix so just use a spoon to stir the two together. Pour mixture into a greased loaf pan; I used 4 small loaf pans and it was just the right amount. Bake at 350ºF for 60–65 minutes for a large loaf pan or 25–35 minutes for small loaf pans.
For the orange glaze:
Mix together the powdered sugar and orange juice. If it seems too wet, add a little more powdered sugar. If it seems too dry, add a little more orange juice. Be careful and add the juice slowly because it is easy to over add! Drizzle over the bread.
Chocolate zucchini bread loaded with chocolate chunks and drizzled with an orange-infused chocolate glaze.
These beauties are nutrient-dense, full of healthy fats, protein and antioxidants. And not to mention, with staying power to keep you fueled well until lunchtime. Be sure you don’t skip the cinnamon in these muffins. Not only does cinnamon have several wonderful health-related effects on the body, but it is magic when paired with blueberries.
I will admit that I adore traditional banana nut bread, but I always feel as though there is something missing. In this recipe, I added cinnamon and nutmeg to provide a warmth and depth of flavor that cannot be achieved any other way. For those of you who say, “I do not like bananas,” you should still give this recipe a try. My husband said that it reminded him of carrot cake!
