Directions:

1.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a standard size bread pan with butter and set aside.

2.) In a medium bowl, mix bananas, butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla together until well combined. Sprinkle baking soda and salt over banana mixture. Gently stir in flour; keep in mind that you don’t want to over mix!

3.) In a separate bowl, mix together sugar and cinnamon for cinnamon swirl.

4.) Pour half of the batter into pre-greased bread pan. Sprinkle 3/4 of the cinnamon swirl mixture on top and then add the remaining batter. Pour leftover cinnamon swirl to the top of the loaf.

5.) Bake 50-60 minutes. Keep and eye on how the bread is baking and lower the temperature if it doesn’t seem to be cooking fast enough in the center. Let bread cool completely in pan before removing.
