Prepping a Aromatic Banana Caramel Swirl Loaf


Aromatic Banana Caramel Swirl Loaf!
– 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
– 1 teaspoon baking soda
– 1/4 teaspoon salt
– 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
– 3/4 cup white sugar
– 2 eggs
– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
– 1 cup mashed ripe bananas
– 1/3 cup chopped pecans
– 2 tablespoons caramel sauce

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan.
2. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
3. In a separate bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla.
4. Mix the mashed bananas into the creamed mixture.
5. Stir the dry ingredients into the batter just until blended. Gently fold in the nuts.
6. Pour half the batter into the prepared pan. Drizzle the caramel sauce over the batter in the pan. Top with remaining batter and swirl together using a knife.
7. Bake for about 50 minutes in the preheated oven. Loaf is done when a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.

Making the Recipe Gluten Free

For those requiring a gluten free version of this delightful loaf, you can use an all-purpose gluten free flour mix in place of the all-purpose flour. Depending on the brand you choose, some of the all-purpose gluten free flour mixes may need a teaspoon or two of baking powder to help rise, so if you find your loaf is not as fluffy as you’d like, you can adjust that.

Making The Recipe Vegan

To make this recipe vegan, simply substitute the butter for vegan butter and the eggs for vegan eggs. For the “egg” part you can use either a mashed banana, flax eggs, chia seeds, apple sauce or even a blend of the above. Additionally, depending on your plant-based milk of choice, a teaspoon of lemon juice or vinegar can help “activate” the baking soda to help with the rise.


For a simple, yet delicious and decadent treat, look no further than the Aromatic Banana Caramel Swirl Loaf. With thoughtful swaps of ingredients and/or adjustments to the amounts of baking powder, this tasty loaf can be enjoyed with a variety of dietary restrictions. Enjoy!
