What makes this Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread so good?
In my opinion there are a couple of things that put this Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread recipe over the top.

- The bananas are soaked in strong coffee which gives it a great boost of flavor and adds to the breads moistness.
Why should you use overripe bananas in your Banana Bread?
Overripe bananas are much easier to mash up and they mix into your batter more uniformly. Also, overripe bananas are more aromatic and have a sweeter flavor. As a banana ripens more of the starch is converted into sugar. This gives your Banana Bread some great natural sweetness.
Another great tip for making the most delicious Banana Bread with overripe bananas.
Peel your overripe bananas, place them in a zip lock baggie and freeze them. Once you are ready to use them thaw them completely and add them to your batter. They will be very soupy and may not look very a…ppeal…ing to eat, however that stuff is liquid gold in your Banana Bread!
