  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 2 medium bananas very ripe
  • 1/4 cup vegetable or canola oil
  • 1/4 cup sour cream or Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 large eggs


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease and flour a 9" x 5" loaf pan. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and cloves.
  • In a large measuring cup, mash bananas. You should have 1 cup of the mashed mixture from 2 medium bananas. Add eggs, oil, sour cream, vanilla and sugar. Whisk together.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir with a spatula. Do not overmix.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan.
  • Bake bread for 10 minutes in 375 degrees F. When the timer beeps, do not open the oven door but lower the temperature to 350 degrees F. Bake bread for 30 more minutes OR until the top is cracked and golden brown and the toothpick inserted in few spots in the center of the bread comes out almost clean.
  • Cool bread in pan completely.
  • Brush bread with melted butter. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Slice and enjoy!


I always add a pinch of ground cloves to banana baked goods. It adds a nice warm flavor, especially paired with cinnamon.
You can brush the top with butter and cinnamon sugar or drizzle it with cream cheese glaze. Craving chocolate? Add 1/2 cup of semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips, or chunks of chopped chocolate bar to the batter. You can also make a cinnamon swirl like I did in my Blender Banana Bread. Feel free to add dried fruit and nuts, if you like. You can spread cinnamon butter over a slice and devour.
Keep bread in air-tight container for up to 4 days.
