We all know the reason behind making banana bread. Our bananas slowly start turning into nasty black fruits sitting on our counter/microwave/fruit basket and boy do they look scary. But we don't want to waste them even though our roommate/boyfriend/husband/significant other says they look ghastly and we need to throw them away.
So this one is a winner. I have to be craving banana bread to eat it because I don't like the idea of mushed up bananas in my bread. I'm weird, I know. But this one... this one is different. It's got cinnamon sugar swirl inside the batter. It's got this nice crunch on the middle that contrasts delightfully with the moist banana bread itself. Yum.
I also decided to keep the bread naked. No glaze, no topping. It's good enough on it's own. Feel free to add whatever you may please on it! Sometimes I toast my banana bread and spread on a little bit of butter (that's only when I'm in Texas though).
