Hey its Carla Bruno from CarlasCakes! Here is another great recipe I had to share with you. I am obsessed with banana bread and so it my husband, and I am also obsessed with Lotus Cookie Butter! If you don't know what that is yet, I strongly suggest you become familiar because I am telling you, it is the best thing ever! There are lots of different types of cookie butters. However, I love Lotus because it has a caramel taste to it.

  • Combine sugar and butter in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until creamy. Beat in bananas and eggs.

  • Mix 1 1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons cake flour, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl. Mix into the banana mixture. Stir in vanilla extract. Pour half of the batter into the prepared pan.

  • Heat cookie spread in the microwave until softened, about 20 seconds. Spread over the batter in the pan. Cover with remaining banana batter; swirl decoratively with a knife.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Invert onto a wire rack. Cool for 10 to 15 minutes before serving.

Cook's Note:

Substitute 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour for the cake flour if desired.

I made this last night and I tasted it after it cooled. I was pretty disappointed not sweet enough could not taste the cookie butter too dense. I decided to throw it away in the morning. This morning I sat down to review it and then thought I should try it again. Boy was I pleasantly surprised! The flavors all melded and came together to produce a sweet moist bread. I made half the recipe and decreased the bananas to 2 rather than 3. I think the addition of nuts would compliment this bread. Good recipe. Read More

A reliable recipe! I've made this cake 3 times and it's never failed me. My friends and colleagues loved it. It's moist tasty and the melted cookie butter in the middle is the perfect secret ingredient. Read More

We just recently discovered cookie butter.....yummm! I had some bananas and didn't want 'just' banana bread so I opened AllRecipes to do an ingredient search and before I even typed in bananas there was this recipe. PERFECT! This made such moist bread with that special surprise ribbon of flavor going through it. Hubby loved it!!! Enuf said! Read More
