The Nerd *loves* banana nut bread, and this version adds cinnamon and sugar for a yummy twist on a classic.
Cinnamon Sugar Banana Bread
Adapted From: Our Own Ordinary
4 very ripe bananas
1/3 cup melted butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup raisins
1/3 cup sugar mixed with 1 Tbsp. cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Peel the bananas and add them to a bowl. Mash them with a fork or spatula.
Add the butter, sugar, egg and vanilla to the bananas and mix with a rubber spatula.
Sprinkle the baking soda and salt on top of the banana mixture.
Slowly stir in the flour, making sure it is well incorporated.
Mix in the walnuts and raisins.
Pour half the batter into a greased loaf pan. Sprinkle 2/3 of the cinnamon and sugar mixture on top of that.
Pour in the rest of the batter and sprinkle the left-over cinnamon/sugar on top.
Bake for 45-50 minutes. Let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Slice and serve!
