The Best Butterscotch Banana Bread

  • Author: Laura
  • Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes
  • Yield: 1 loaf banana bread 1x



1 1/2 cups white all-purpose flour

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

1 stick unsalted butter, softened

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup sour cream

3 large ripe bananas (or roasted, see post)

3 large eggs, room temperature

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup butterscotch chips

1 yellow banana (optional)


Preheat oven to 325°F

In a small bowl whisk together the flour, salt and baking soda, set aside

In the bowl of your electric mixer fitted with blade attachment add the butter and sugars

Beat on high to cream the butter and sugars together until fluffy, about 2-3 minutes*

Add the sour cream, mix to combine

Add the bananas, beat until the bananas are smoothly combined

Add eggs 1 at a time, mixing in between

Add the vanilla, mix

Slowly add the dry ingredient mixture to the wet ingredients, mix until just combined

Fold in the butterscotch chips

Throughly grease a 9 X 5″ loaf pan

Spoon the batter into the pan to fill it 3/4 of the way full

Smooth the batter into an even layer

Slice the yellow banana length wise and place the 2 halves on top of the batter for decoration**


*scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl with a rubber spatula as needed while creaming

**this is totally optional, it makes the banana bread look beautiful, but sometimes it can also make it bake slightly less evenly
