Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread.

Super-moist banana bread with a thick cinnamon swirl and topped with vanilla glaze.

Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread - for those of you who love banana bread and warm, gooey cinnamon rolls!

 Early last week, I picked up a bunch of bananas and anxiously waited for them to turn the perfect shade of speckled brown. Sweet, over-ripened, and practically-rotten bananas are the force behind a spectacular banana bread. When it comes to bananas in banana bread, I like to say… the browner, the better.

Sunday morning, I woke up like a giddy little girl on Christmas morning and popped my head into the kitchen in hopes to find my perfect speckled bananas waiting for me.  I like to stick mine in a brown paper bag to speed up the process. Who has patience?  Not this girl.

Alas, the naners were ready.  50 quick minutes later, a star banana bread was born.

This is by far the easiest banana bread you’ll ever make. 5 minutes to mix together, pop in the oven, go back to sleep…

…at least that’s what I did. ;)

Soon enough, you’ll be graced with an alluring scent wafting through the house and one fine lookin’ bread ready in the oven.

Easy Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread - a recipe for all of you who love banana bread and warm, gooey cinnamon rolls!

What you’ll love most is that there is only 1/2 stick butter in the entire recipe.  The bread is left moist and tender from the vanilla yogurt and bananas, so there really wasn’t any need for more artery clogging fat.

But there’s obviously a need for a sweet heavy cream/powdered sugar glaze. There’s always a need for that. Sure the drippy glaze is drool-worthy, but what I loved most about the banana bread is the pretty little cinnamon ribbon hiding inside.

I’m a true cinnamon fiend and love to sprinkle cinnamon sugar on just about anything these days. A thick layer of the good stuff peeking through the moist banana bread layers is to die for.

Because of the added sweetness in the glaze and cinnamon-sugar layer, I reduced the sugar in the actual bread itself. I don’t enjoy a sugar-bomb banana bread because it takes away from the most important part – the bananas. Unless of course it’s this banana bread.

Today’s bread is unreal. It’s like biting into a huge cinnamon bun but better. A beautiful merging of moist, dense banana bread with sticky, sweet cinnamon rolls.

Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread

Moist, flavorful banana bread swirled with a thick layer of cinnamon and topped with cream vanilla glaze.

Yield: 1 loaf

Ingredients:

Banana Bread

  • 2 cups (250g) white whole wheat flour (or all-purpose flour)
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup (100g) light brown sugar, not packed
  • 4 Tablespoons (60g) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 and 1/2 cups mashed very ripe banana (about 3 bananas)
  • 1/3 cup (80g) plain or vanilla yogurt (I used greek yogurt)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cinnamon Swirl

  • 1/4 cup (50g) granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Simple Glaze

  • 1/2 cup (60g) powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1 Tablespoon (15ml) heavy cream (or half-and-half or milk)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a 9×5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside. In a separate large bowl, beat the brown sugar and butter with a stand or handheld mixer on medium speed until well blended – about 1 minute. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. With a wooden spoon, stir in the mashed banana, yogurt, and vanilla. Slowly add in the dry ingredients. Do NOT overmix. Batter will be thick.
  3. Spoon half of the batter into prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar swirl ingredients. Top with remaining batter. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 15 minutes in the pan on a wire rack. Remove from pan and cool completely on the wire rack.
  4. While the bread is cooling, make the glaze in a small bowl by combining the powdered sugar and heavy cream. Add more powdered sugar until you reached desired thickness. Drizzle over banana bread. Bread will stay fresh and moist at room temperature for up to 10 days in an airtight container.

    Hi Sally,

    I made this recipe last night, it didn’t work out for me :(
    All the ingredients were measured out correctly and I used the right baking tin. A lot of the banana sank to the bottom and the swirl just dissapeared – it also took much longer than the 40-45 mins in my fan assisted oven.

    Maybe I added too much banana?
    Hoping to give it another go in the next couple of weeks as it does look like such a lovely recipe!

      Hi Katy! I’ve made this bread several different ways in several different ovens – I fear your oven temperature may be off. Do you have an oven thermometer? I strongly urge my readers to buy one. They are less than $10. My oven is 20 degrees warmer than what the dial states and when it comes to baking – that leaves room for so much error. Which is why I bake with a thermometer. Did you measure your ingredients correctly? Here is a post I wrote about common measuring mistakes: http://sallysbakingaddiction.com/2012/04/18/how-to-not-screw-up-your-next-recipe-measuring-101-2/

      Also, is your baking soda up to date? It expires after 6 months and to be safe, I urge readers to switch every 3.

    Sally, this is fantastic! It’s so delicious, especially with the ribbon of cinnamon sugar in the middle. The kids (both three years old) really enjoyed helping to make it – and eat it. I love the fact that you made this healthy. We are constantly researching recipes that sound delicious and are also healthy. Now, I just need to step away from the kitchen (and not take the banana swirl with me) before I eat it all! Thank you for posting this incredibly kid-friendly recipe. My little ones also send their THANK YOU MISS SALLY FOR THE YUMMY YUMMY BANANA MAGIC BREAD (oh the magic is the swirl hidden in the bread).

    Hi Sally!
    I just tried ur recipe for the Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread. It tastes awesome!! I only had an 8″ x 4″ loaf tin so I had some mixture left which I managed to get another 6 muffins. :) My husband is a this very moment chomping on them as I am telling u!
    Just one point and I think it is a typo. For baking time it states 40-45 mins & I tell u the mixture was still sticking to my toothpick when I went to check. However 20 mins later, it came out the same as the picture! :)
    I’ve only just gotten my table top oven, so I will be trying a lot more of ur recipes, esp the skinny versions!!
    Keep up the great work!!! :D

      Hi Suzy! Thanks so much for reporting back about the banana bread. This is one of my favorite little treats this time of year. The 8×4 loaf pan is a great substitute – plus, who doesn’t like a few extra banana bread muffins to go along with it? All ovens are different. I know when I make this banana bread in my mother’s house, the baking time is much longer. That’s why it’s important to use the toothpick to double check! Thanks Suzy, let me know what you make next.

    This was the first banana bread I ever made, and I’ve made it every time my bananas have gone brown since! I usually substitute sour cream for the yogurt, last time I even subbed cream cheese with great results.This time I went all out and added apples, then baked it with a streusal topping, and of course the icing on top of that! My oh my. But that cinnamon swirl is so genius! People think I’m so advanced I should open a bakery, and I now attempt to add a cinnamon swirl to everything I can!

      Hi Marsela – did you test the banana bread with a toothpick as instructed? If the toothpick comes out clean, the bread is done. However if your bread was gooey inside and collapsed, that means it wasn’t done in the oven. All ovens are different, so it sounds like your bread needs to be baked a little longer.

    This banana bread was some of the best I’ve ever made- I love the addition of the cinnamon swirl. I’m about to make it again and I think I may add it in 2 layers this type it was so good!

    Hi Sally! Thank you so much for this incredible recipe – it’s in the oven right now and smells amazing! I was browsing your blog earlier and my fiance (who typically does not like sweets) stopped me on two or three recipes because the pictures looked so good. So this week will be full of delicious baking!!

    I have previously made your Super Crumb Coffee Cake and the Raspberry Almond Thumbprint Cookies, and wow, were they great. Can’t wait to try more!

      Hope you enjoy this bread, Theresa! And I’m so happy that you love a few of my other recipes too. The crumb cake and those thumbprint cookies are great choices!

    I don’t know what happened… I used all the right ingredients and measurements. I cooked it for 45 minutes and the middle was goey. I cooked it another 30 minutes on a slighty higher temperature and still goey in the middle. Totally bummed because now we have no breakfast. :(

      I’m quite concerned that a traditional quick loaf recipe won’t cook in your oven in 1 hour, 15 minutes. So sorry that it wasn’t cooked through – perhaps try checking your oven temperature with an oven thermometer or baking for longer until it is done.

    Sally, I just made these last night. After dinner just now, I gave one to my 14 month old in his high chair (his 2nd one today) and turned around to work on a cake for Easter. When I turned back around a minute or two later, my son had grabbed the tupperware of muffins (which apparently I left in his reach-Whoops!), pulled the lid off, and helped himself to FIVE more, which he piled on his high chair. After thanking him for the compliment, I took them away, moved the tupperware, and went back to work. The next thing I knew, he was eating yet another muffin! He must’ve stowed it down by his hip and I missed it!! Gabriel and I both thank you for the best banana bread recipe I’ve ever had!!

    Hi Sally, firstly, this recipe looks really awesome and easy to try! Thanks for sharing with us :) Secondly, quick question for you, can I use Mini loaf tins for this recipe, if so, how much batter do you recommend that I use per tin and how long should I leave it in for?
    Thanks again! :-D

      I’m unsure of the bake time for mini loaf pans, but fill them about halfway to 2/3 full. Enjoy!

    I love bananas, but I’ve never been a fan of banana bread; however, I made this early this morning and to my great surprise I loved it! Might have something to do with all the cinnamon ;)

    This looks delicious! I don’t really have any yogurt or it’s substitutes on hand…could I just use extra butter instead?

    i made your banana bread with cream cheese frosting the other day and my parents loved it i had to make a new batch for my sisters! i tried this version but i used your caramel as glaze instead and it rocked our house! :) we are banana and cinnamon lovers and yes, this will be a main stay recipe in our oven :)
    by the way, i made your monkey bread with caramel this afternoon and we’re waiting for tomorrow to try it! i will also be baking your white chocolate chip cranberry cookies tomorrow! i’ve been taste testing your site for four consecutive days now and i LOVE all of it! thank you so much for the wonderful recipes :)

    Making this now…so excited! One thing I found unclear…in the recipe it says to add the dry ingredients, but should those be mixed in by hand or with the mixer? Maybe I’m having a blonde moment!

      Hi Jessica! Sorry about that. Mix in the dry ingredients by hand.

    I don’t normally comment on recipes, but I just wanted to say that this turned out great! I’ve avoided making quick breads in my current oven because the middle never cooks and the top burns. I didn’t have enough banana, so I subbed in half a cup of pumpkin and used a half whole wheat and half all purpose flour, and even with these modifications, it turned out delicious.

    Thank you for giving me hope in making quick breads again! :D
