Sugar Crusted Banana Bread


Sign me up for anything with a sugared crust! When baked, this banana loaf creates a sweet, caramel flavored crust around the bread. I also use four very ripe bananas to increase the flavor of the banana bread.

I’ve never been a lover of nuts in my banana bread, but you could add in a half a cup of walnuts if you’d like to give it a bit of a crunch, or for an even sweeter treat, try some chocolate chips!
