Banana Coffee Quick Loaf | Italian Food Forever

Must Try

Random Image Popup

I like baking quick sweet bread or loaf cakes as they are easy to put together and pretty forgiving. This particular recipe allowed me to use up some over ripe bananas in our freezer which kept the loaves nice and moist and added extra sweetness which allowed me to decrease some of the sugar.

The breads are flavored with some extra strong coffee along with a dash of cinnamon which paired perfectly with the subtle sweetness of the bananas. You might consider coffee to be an odd ingredient in banana bread but actually enhances the banana flavor of this moist loaf.

When sliced, these loaves were very moist with just a subtle coffee flavor. A slice is a perfect addition to my morning cappuccino, or as an afternoon pick-me-up with a shot of espresso.
