Upside Down Banana Bread Recipe

For the Bread:
3 very ripe bananas
2 ripe bananas, sliced into 1/4” coins
½ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup mix-ins – walnuts, chocolate chips, raisins, etc

For the “Upside Down:”
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup plus two tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line a loaf pan with greased parchment paper.

For the bread: using the paddle attachment on a stand mixer, beat the butter and sugar until soft and combined. Mash in the bananas. Add the eggs and beat just until mixed in.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add this to the banana mixture slowly. Add the vanilla extract and mix-ins. Scrape down the bowl.
Layer sliced bananas at the bottom of the loaf pan. Top with the batter. Bake at 350 for 45 – 50 minutes, until an inserted toothpick pulls away clean. Allow to cool to slightly above room temperature before inverting. Cool completely before slicing.
