1 9x5-inch loaf



  • cooking spray

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar

  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened

  • 2 large eggs

  • 3 medium ripe bananas, mashed

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract


  • ¼ cup packed light brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream

  • cup confectioners' sugar

  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.

  2. Make the bread: Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl.

  3. Beat brown sugar and butter in a bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until combined after each addition. Mix in bananas and vanilla. Gradually add flour mixture, beating on low speed just until incorporated. Pour batter into the prepared pan.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 45 to 55 minutes.

  5. Remove from the oven and cool in the pan for 20 minutes.

  6. While the bread is cooling, make the glaze: Bring brown sugar and butter to a boil in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook, whisking constantly, until sugar is dissolved, about 1 minute. Stir in whipping cream and remove from the heat. Add confectioners' sugar and salt; stir until smooth.

  7. Run a knife around the edges of the bread, transfer loaf to a plate, and drizzle glaze over top. Or, drizzle glaze over loaf while still in the pan, and serve it from the pan.
