Glazed Banana Bread

Banana Bread was always something I shied away from because it usually always contained nuts and and was always too banana-y according to me. I absolutely love bananas - the fruit. I love them in my smoothie or to eat plain or with peanut butter. But, banana flavored desserts have never really been my thing. Same for Kimmy (my dear friend and co-owner) and Jackie (our assistant manager). So when I made a Banana Bread that all three of us liked - I knew I had hit the jackpot. This Banana Bread recipe below is just perfectly banana, has no nuts and is topped with a cinnamon glaze. 

Glazed Banana Bread

Makes 9 x 5-inch Loaf


1 stick (113 grams) organic salted butter, softened

113 grams (1/2 cup) organic packed dark brown sugar

57 grams (1/4 cup) organic cane sugar

1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract

2 organic large ripe bananas

2 organic large eggs

3/4 cup organic heavy whipping cream

170 grams (1 cup plus 3 tablespoons) all natural cake flour

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon organic cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt


142 grams (1 cup) organic powdered sugar, sifted

2 tablespoons organic milk

1/2 teaspoon organic cinnamon

Method Preheat the oven to 350°F.

To make the batter: In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter, sugar, dark brown sugar, bananas and vanilla extract. Add the eggs and cream and mix on low until combined.

Add cake flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and sea salt into the mixing bowl in that order. Mix on low until combined, and you have a smooth batter.

Grease the bottom and sides of a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan. Pour the batter into the loaf pan and spread out evenly. Bake for 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Once the loaf has cooled, remove it from the pan.

To make the glaze: Add powdered sugar, cinnamon, and milk and whisk until smooth. Drizzle the frosting over the top of the loaf.

Store in an airtight container for up to 7 days.

Gluten Free - Just substitute the cake flour for 170 grams (1 cup plus 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon) organic gluten free flour blend, our favorite is Namaste Organic Perfect Flour Blend.

High Altitude – Bake at 350°F for 45 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
