Feel like some banana bread? Sometimes I have random cravings.. and hoping my bananas will quickly ripen! This is a delicious banana bread with a twist~ or should I say "swirl" hahha! Super quick and super easy :D

Cinnamon Swirl Banana bread
Recipe adapted from Sally's Baking Addiction

Banana bread
2 cups (250g) plain flour
3/4 tsp bicarb soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup (100g) brown sugar
60g unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups ripe banana, mashed (about 3 bananas)
1/3g (80g) plain/vanilla yoghurt
1 tsp vanilla essence

Cinnamon Swirl
1/4 cup (50g) caster sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon

Simple Glaze
1/2 cup (60g) soft icing sugar
1 tbs heavy cream

Chopped walnuts (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 180oC. Grease and line a loaf pan.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, bicarb soda, salt and cinnamon.
3. In a separate large bowl beat the brown sugar and butter on medium speed until well blended. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in mashed banana, yoghurt and vanilla. Slowly add the dry ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon - do not overmix. Batter will be thick.
4. Spoon half batter into prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar swirl ingredients. Top with remaining batter. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 15 minutes then remove and allow to cool completely on wire rack.
5. Make glaze by combining icing sugar and heavy cream. Add more icing sugar if needed to reach desired consistency. Drizzle over banana bread and top with some chopped walnuts (optional).
