Cinnamon Banana Bread

This banana bread is worth baking even for the smell alone. A sweet scent fills the whole kitchen as soon as the bread starts baking. It’s quick, easy and oh-so-good! There is something incredibly comforting about warm and fluffy banana bread along with some hot tea or coffee, especially when the weather outside is chilly.


I decided to go a step further and bake my banana bread with a delicious and crunchy cinnamon topping. Cinnamon and bananas are literally made for each other, these two flavors go so well together!
