Banana Butterscotch Bread

Banana Butterscotch Bread

Made  times

"Warning! Addictive! This is such a delicious version of traditional banana bread and is extremely popular whenever I make it that I had to share it on Allrecipes! I got it from an old Bed and Breakfast recipe from a place in Maryland and make it every year around the holidays! I don't use the walnuts, but I hear that it is really good for those that like them. This recipe has definitely become a new tradition!"

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 2 9x5-inch loaf pans. Set aside. Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg together in a bowl. Set aside.
  2. Beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until light and fluffy. The mixture should be noticeably lighter in color. Beat in the egg, then stir in the mashed bananas. Pour in the flour mixture, mixing until just incorporated. Fold in the butterscotch chips and walnuts; mixing just enough to evenly combine. Pour the batter evenly into the prepared pans.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 25 to 28 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

This has a really good flavor. Different from traditional banana bread. Only thing I did differently was I used less sugar since the butterscotch chips are so sweet. Also, I'm not sure if the...

This was amazing! I used half whole wheat and half white flour. To make it more of a dessert, I put a topping on it, 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon ginger, and 2 teaspoons melted butter, mi...

Amazing! I took it to a BBQ and it disappeared immediately! I put all the batter into a bundt pan instead of 2 loaf pans and I cooked it for 30 min at 350. When it cooled I put a glaze over it (...
