Coffee Toffee Banana Bread

Making it with MaryAnn

Breakfast and coffee go so well together! I am going to share a delightful recipe that I like to make if I have company staying over, or when I have to bring something tasty to a brunch. I have a banana bread that tastes great on its own and even better when you add coffee to it!

Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

  • 3 large ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 cup brewed strong coffee (I used Caffe D’arte Velletri Drip)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup chopped toffee

Here’s how it’s done:

  1. As your oven preheats to 350 degrees, begin mixing all of the ingredients together. You will want a large mixing bowl to combine the brown sugar, olive oil, eggs, vanilla extract, bananas, and coffee; mix thoroughly.
  2. Once the wet ingredients are mixed you can add in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon, mixing thoroughly again. Lastly, add in the chopped toffee.
  3. Spray a bread pan with a non-stick spray and pour in your bread batter. All that’s left is to toss it in the oven!
  4. Your bake time will be about 50 minutes or until a toothpick can be inserted and removed clean (without banana batter).
  5. You can sprinkle your favorite topping on top for a bit of flare and flavor, I like to use powdered sugar. Let your delicious bread cool down and as always, enjoy with a nice hot cup of coffee!
