Are you ready?


My family is!

Banana bread is good anytime of the year, but this recipe… with the add of the International Delight Caramel Macchiato creamer and the coffee and the cinnamon  – all definitely give this it’s certain holiday flare. Oh, and the glaze…

You’re welcome.

Here’s how you too can bake yourself a little loaf of caramel macchiato goodness in time for the holidays:


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (I add a couple pinches more… makes the flavor a pinch holiday-ier)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large very ripe bananas (mine were not VERY ripe, but the produce guy helped me find the ripeeee-est in the store and gave them to me for no charge! THAT, is customer service. And also his daughter is in my daughter’s class, etc and whathaveyou…)
  • 1/2 cup  International Delight® Caramel Macchiato liquid creamer
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs (I used eggs from my friend’s chickens)
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons instant coffee granules (I only bake with instant coffee. I do not actually drink the stuff. No.)
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter (I used salted. I have a *thing* for salt)
  • 6 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

How you do it:

  • Combine that first cluster of bullet points.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the second cluster of bullet points… mix until the coffee granules have dissolved.
  • (I am so good at recipe writing)
  • Then, a half-cup at a time… combine the dry stuff (bullet cluster #1) with the wet stuff (bullet cluster #2)… And pour into a prepared (sprayed with cooking spray) 9×5 loaf pan.
  • Pop into an oven heated to threefitty (350), yo! Bake for an hour… or until a toothpick poked in the center comes out clean.
  • Now (after you take out the loaf)… melt the butter… add the brown sugar and vanilla. Stir. Keep stirring… and bring to a boil. Keep stirring and reduce to simmer for 3 minutes. The recipe says to let it cool, but mine is always thick at the end of 3 minutes so I just pour it right onto the loaf.
  • Serve when the glaze has set and enjoy!

Oh friends. So moist.
