Brûléed Banana Bread

I am not much of a baker as I enjoy cooking savory food, but once in a while I have a sweet craving which needs to be answered. One of these cravings decided to show up so I chose to make banana bread and to change things up I caramelized the top of the cake which added a nice sweet touch. In addition, I sliced one banana in half and added one part to the bottom of the bread and the other to the top and this does not only create extra flavor but it looks amazing as well when cut into slices. I hope you will love this as much as I did!

This recipe is for a medium size loaf pan.


4 very ripe bananas, peeled

2 eggs

75g unsalted butter, melted

150g sugar

190g flour

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon cinnamon

¼ cup milk

½ cup walnut, chopped

Pinch of salt



Preheat the oven to 180C/350F; butter the loaf pan and then cover with parchment paper.

Slice one banana lengthwise and set aside, transfer the other 3 bananas to a large bowl. Add the butter, eggs, sugar, milk and vanilla extract and start mixing everything with either a wooden spoon or a hand mixer. Now mix in the flour, baking soda and salt, once everything is well combined add the walnuts.

Pour a thin layer of the batter in the loaf pan and place half of the sliced banana. Pour the remaining batter, top with the second half of the banana and sprinkle the cinnamon. Bake the banana bread for 45-60 minutes. When inserting a toothpick it should come out clean.
