Cinnamon Banana Bread

1 c. sugar

1/3 c. butter, softened

2 eggs

3-4 bananas, really really ripe and black

1/3 c. water

1-1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

1-2/3 c. flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. baking powder

1 T. cinnamon


Mash bananas well. Whisk in water and vanilla. Set aside. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, soda, salt, powder and cinnamon; set aside. Cream together sugar and butter until pale yellow and fluffy-ish. Add eggs one at a time, incorporating well between each addition. With mixer on low speed, add half of dry mixture, then all of banana mixture, then the rest of dry mixture; this should only take about a minute. Generously coat loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray. Pour batter in pan. Generously sprinkle cinnamon sugar over top of batter; this will give the bread a nice crisp crust. Bake at 350 for 55-60 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
