Is there anything that says classic baking more than a moist banana bread? Me thinks not. Of course, sometimes it’s fun to do something a little extra to your banana bread. I love banana bread with chocolate chips. And banana bread swirled with nutella. Or peanut butter banana bread. Or dare I say…snickerdoodle banana bread?
How to spice up your classic banana bread recipe?
Oooh baby! The possibilities are nearly endless. But one thing I’m loving as Fall is around the corner? Banana bread with cinnamon sugar, aka what I like to call Snickerdoodle Banana Bread.
Think the classic banana bread you know and love, but jazzed up with a hint of cinnamon spice, a luxurious cinnamon swirl and coated on all sides with cinnamon sugar that turns into a delicious crunchy exterior as it bakes.
It’s pretty wonderful.
One thing that’s super important to me in baking is using real ingredients. You’ll never find fake butter or sugar on this blog, because I so believe that if you use high quality ingredients and eat in moderation, baking with real butter and sugar is the best.
So I was so excited to hear about a new product from my friends at Domino: Golden Sugar. It’s made from pure cane sugar, is less processed than white sugar, and yet works cup-for-cup just like white sugar. It imparts just a hint of molasses flavor, and bakes into your desserts like golden perfection.
I used Domino® Golden Sugar entirely in this snickerdoodle banana bread, and I have to say, I’m obsessed. Like, why wouldn’t I want a deeper flavor in my baked goods, while baking with something less processed and that works just as well as white sugar? It’s a no-brainer for me, dawg.
Now that it’s Fall (sort of) I’ll just be baking up a storm until January with all the golden sugar and cinnamon spice I can possibly eat. And you can bet I’ll be making this Snickerdoodle Banana bread more than once (or twice) this Fall!
