Butterscotch Banana Bread


This base banana bread recipe has been my go-to recipe for years.  It has gotten nothing but rave reviews since the day I posted the original version.  I just recently started adding butterscotch chips and OH MY, it is amazing.  Something about the flavor of the bananas, cinnamon and butterscotch just warms the soul.

This bread is soft and tender and stays fresh for several days.  The butterscotch chips melt and leave little pockets of rich and creamy toffee flavor.  I can't wait for you to try this comforting and delicious bread.

(Printable Recipe)

1 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 c. wheat flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon, opt.
1 c. mashed ripe bananas (2-3 large bananas)
5 Tbl. unsalted butter, melted
3/4 c. sugar
1 large egg
1/3 c. buttermilk
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. butterscotch chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.  In a separate bowl, whisk together the mashed bananas, melted butter, sugar, egg, buttermilk and vanilla until smooth.  Add wet ingredients to dry and stir together until almost combined.  Add the butterscotch chips and gently stir just until combined.  

Pour batter into a greased 9x5-inch loaf pan.  Bake for 42-44 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  If the top begins to get too brown, tent a piece of foil over the top while it finishes baking.  Allow to cool.  Then, slice and serve.
