Banana Bread with Maple Glaze

Going bananas! A simple & delightful recipe that is perfect for breakfast or dessert. I woke up to a gorgeous morning — sunshine, hot cup of coffee and a slice of banana-licious bread : ) 

It’s sweet treat with or without the maple glaze. Golden brown edges plus bursting banana flavor inside. Yes! I commonly add nuts baking banana cake or bread but even without the nuts it was delicious. We loved the wonderful sweet aroma throughout the house, too! Do what makes you happy #burstingbananas #happysunday #homebakedgoodness 💛 🍌

Bread Ingredients: 1/2 cup butter, softened – 1 cup sugar – 2 eggs- 2 cups all purpose flour – 1 tsp baking soda – 1/4 tsp salt – 3 medium bananas or 2 large – 2 tbsp. brown sugar – 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract – 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon  Maple Glaze: 1/4 cup butter – 1/2 cup pure maple syrup – 1 cup powdered sugar – 1/2 tsp vanilla extract – 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon 

Directons: Pre heat oven to 350. Grease one 9×5 pan or 2 8×4 pans. In s small bowl, mash bananas, brown sugar, vanilla extract and ground cinnamon. In a large bowl, cream butter & sugar together until light and fluffy. Add in eggs and beat until mixed. To the wet ingredients, sift in flour, baking soda and salt. Stir until just combined. Pour in mashed bananas, mix until combined. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes (for 2 8×4 pans) or until cake tester comes out clean. If using 9×5 pan, bake 350 for 30 minutes then lower temp to 325 and bake for 15-20 minutes longer until cake tester comes out clean. Allow to cool for 10 minutes. Move to a wire cooling rack. Glaze: Melt butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract and cinnamon over low heat. Once melted together, pull off the heat. Sift in powdered sugar, and whisk until fully combined. Allow to cool for 8-10 minutes so glaze can thicken. Once the glaze has thickened, give a quick stir and pour over the bread. Allow the glaze to harden completely before cutting into slices.
