Sticky Fingers Banana Bread

Salted Caramel and Banana Bread. It’s like peanut butter and jelly, strawberries and chocolate, Brad and Angelina…


½ cup butter, melted

1 c. flour

1 tsp. baking soda

¼ tsp. kosher salt

¾ cup sugar

¼ cup buttermilk

¼ cup yogurt or sour cream

1 tsp. vanilla

2 large eggs

4 ripe bananas, mashed


1 cup sugar

6 Tablespoons butter

½ heavy whipping cream


Make Caramel:

Have the butter and cream ready to go next to the stove. Melt the sugar on medium heat in heavy saucepan. As the sugar begins to melt, stire vigourously with a whisk. As the sugar comes to a boil, stop stirring. Let it turn amber and then add the butter and whisk. Once butter is melted, take off the heat and slowly add the cream. Bea careful. It is extremely hot.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and butter and flour a 9-x-5″ loaf pan.

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt.

In another large bowl, combine sugar, butter, buttermilk, vanilla, egg and egg yolk until smooth. Pour wet ingredients over dry and stir until combined, then fold in mashed bananas and ½ the caramel.

Transfer batter to prepared loaf pan. Bake until deeply golden and a toothpick comes out clean, about 60 minutes. Let cool at least 10 minutes before serving. Drizzle with caramel.
