Salted Caramel Banana Bread combines the classic comfort of banana bread with the rich sweetness of salted caramel.
Here’s a delicious recipe for you: Ingredients: For the Banana Bread: 3 ripe bananas, mashed 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 teaspoon baking soda Pinch of salt 1/2 cup granulated sugar 1/2 cup packed brown sugar 1 large egg 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour For the Salted Caramel: 1 cup granulated sugar 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cubed 1/2 cup heavy cream 1 teaspoon sea salt (adjust to taste) Instructions: For the Banana Bread: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
Grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan. In a large mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas with a fork. Add the melted butter and stir until well combined. Mix in the baking soda and salt. Add the granulated sugar, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and egg.
Mix until smooth. Gradually add the flour, stirring until just combined. Be careful not to overmix. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. For the Salted Caramel: a. In a saucepan, heat granulated sugar over medium heat, stirring constantly with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon. b. Once the sugar is melted and reaches a deep amber color, add the butter. Be careful, as the mixture will bubble. c. Stir the butter into the sugar until it’s completely melted. d. Slowly drizzle in the heavy cream while stirring continuously. Again, be cautious of any bubbling. e. Allow the caramel to boil for 1 minute, then remove from heat. f. Stir in the sea salt.
Taste and adjust the salt level to your preference. Pour about half of the salted caramel sauce over the banana bread batter and swirl it in using a knife or skewer. Bake in the preheated oven for 60-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let the banana bread cool in the pan for about 15 minutes, then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely. Drizzle the remaining salted caramel sauce over the cooled banana bread before serving.
