This Banana Bread is tender and fluffy, with a crunchy crust. For an extra special treat, turn this bread into French Toast and top it off with my buttery banana syrup... (link below)

The joy of Banana Bread
One of the reasons I love banana bread so much is because it's super easy to make. The naturally sweet flavor of the bananas coupled with that distinct banana flavor makes it such a treat. This is perfect as breakfast, a snack, or dessert! I like to spread a bit of cream cheese on top of mine..it makes it oh so decadent.
This type of bread is a more traditional sweet, cake-like bread. It's super moist on the inside.
A closer look
ABOUT THE SUGARS-The use of brown sugar is important here as it adds to the moist nature of the bread. The combination of the two sugars means that your bread will have a caramel color, with the unique flavor the brown sugar brings combined with the caramelization and delicate sweetness that white sugar adds as well.
