Mini Banana Swirl Cinnamon Bread

I come across this recipe via Pinterest. Where do I start with my love of Pinterest? They say a picture is worth a thousand words and I believe this reflect it. It allows me to check out other interesting photos and recipes, ideas for the home… and when I feel like I need some inspiration of any kind, it’s there.

So Lovin from the Oven posted this recipe and I know that this would be the one that my new oven would be debuted. The first EVER dish my oven will cook.

This was my thought process when I was deciding what dish I should cook first in our oven.
– It has to smell heavenly. (ie cinnamon, something sweet probably)
– It has to make our home smell like a home (cookies, cakes?)
– it has to be fast (check out the dust that countless trades bring in)
– it has to make use of what I have in my pantry… as I had no time to grab anything from the shops
– it is to be made on the day I want to have treats
– something that is in my 10% of guilt free treats. got to make the most out of it. It has to be WORTHWHILE.

And so I decided on a simple cinnamon swirl banana bread. It smells fantastic, it’s a measure and mix recipe, and it took me 20 minutes to whip it up. Easy. And then I threw all my equipment in my dish washer, made us a cup of tea…

and enjoyed it with ice cream.

I halved the recipe as I didn’t want too many treats lying in our house. I made 4 of these mini loaves and savoured every bite of mine.

Mini Banana Swirl Cinnamon Bread (Makes 4 mini loaves)
3 bananas
1/6 cup melted butter
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
pinch salt
3/4 cup flour

Swirl:
1 tablespoon of cinnamon (yes I’m crazy)
1/6 cup of brown sugar

Preheat oven 180C.

Mash bananas. In a jar, mix melted butter, egg, vanilla and banana together. In a bowl, mix flour, pinch salt and sugar together. Fold banana mixture to dry mixture.

For the swirl- small bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon together.

Spray oil in small loaf tin. Spoon the banana mixture into the tin-fill to half. Sprinkle sugar/cinnamon mixture and then spoon the rest of the mixture on top. Repeat for 3 more loaves. Sprinkle the remaining mixture on top of each loaf.  Bake for 15 minutes.
