Swirl in some jammy goodness - it doesn’t have to be strawberry, use your favorite jam and make your banana bread even mo’ better.
- 1 stick butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 ripe bananas, mashed
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- pinch of salt
- 3-4 tbsp strawberry jam or any other kind you like.
Preheat oven to 350° (325° for convection ovens).
With a whisk, cream together butter and sugar. Then whisk in eggs, milk and vanilla. With a spatula, stir in mashed bananas.
Then gently stir-in the flour, baking soda and salt. Stir only until you no longer see traces of flour, don’t over mix.
Plop batter in a greased or parchment-lined loaf pan, then add dollops of jam and use a knife to swirl that goodness into the batter.
Bake for 55 minutes and let cool completely before slicing. Enjoy!
