Caramel Pecan Banana Bread 




½ cup unsalted butter, softened 

¾ cup light brown sugar 

2 large eggs 

1 tsp vanilla extract

4 ripe bananas, mashed 

½ cup buttermilk 

1 tsp baking soda 

½ tsp salt 

¼ cup caramel sauce


Pecan Streusel 

¼ cup all purpose flour 

¼ cup light brown sugar

1 Tbsp unsalted butter, cubed 

½ cup chopped pecans 



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 5 pan with nonstick cooking spray or butter 

  2. In a stand mixer with paddle attachment cream the butter and brown sugar until fluffy, 2-3 minutes

  3. Add in eggs one at a time and mix until combined. Add in vanilla and mashed bananas 

  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt

  5. With the mixer on low add half of the dry ingredients followed by all of the milk. Mix until just combined then stir in the rest of the dry ingredients. Do not overmix. 

  6. Add the batter to the prepared pan and spoon the caramel sauce on top. Swirl the caramel sauce into the bread

  7. Streusel Topping: In a small bowl combine flower, brown sugar, and butter until it is combined and crumbly (like wet sand). I use a fork to work the cold butter into the flour. You can use a food processor with a couple of pulses. Stir in the pecans.

  8. Sprinkle streusel topping over the batter and bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick comes out clean (if bread starts to get too brown cover with aluminum foil) 

  9. Remove from the oven and allow the bread to cool completely before releasing from the pan.
