This classic banana bread is made with a homemade dulce de leche swirl to create the perfect combination of sweet and fruity flavors. Top off a warm slice of banana bread with a drizzle of the dulce de leche for a sweet treat that is every bit as decadent as it is simply irresistible.


Units Scale
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 bananas
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup dulce de leche


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease and flour a loaf pan.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar. Add eggs, bananas and vanilla. Mix until combined.
  3. Sift together flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to the creamed mixture. Mix until the batter is just barely combined.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Spoon the dulce de leche on top of the batter. Use a knife to swirl it through the batter.
  5. Bake for 55-65 minutes, making sure to "tent" the bread with foil halfway through baking.


If you like fairly sweet banana bread, I recommend making sure your bananas are pretty ripe.

If you use a mixer, you don't need to worry about mashing the bananas before mixing. They mix in really well with a mixer.

Try drizzling dulce de leche on a slice of warm banana bread. Trust me.
