More About This Recipe

  • I love salted caramel. And I love banana bread. So, I thought they needed to meet and get to know each other. As you can see, they fell in love and got married! Banana is so delicious with caramelized sugar and a touch of sea salt. Those three things are just meant to be together. And I love taking a beloved fave I have been making for years and years (like my banana bread recipe) and turning it into something new. I have to be honest, I tried to bake the caramel into the actual bread—but it did not work the way that I wanted it to. I decided that a layer of caramel over the top was the way to go. It is sticky, so give your knife a little spritz of cooking spray before slicing! There you have it—I’m so glad I got these two together, and I’m sure you will be too.
