- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¾ cup firmly packed brown sugar
- ½ cup (1 stick) butter, softened
- 2 eggs
- ⅓ cup sour cream
- 4 ripe bananas, mashed
- 1 ½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- ¼ cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons heavy cream
- ⅓ cup powdered sugar
- ½ teaspoon kosher salt
- Begin by preheating your oven to a toasty 350 degrees F and generously greasing a 9×5-inch baking dish.
- In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking soda, ground cinnamon, and salt. Set this heavenly mix aside.
- In a generously sized bowl, work your magic by beating the brown sugar and softened butter until they form a creamy concoction. Add the eggs one at a time, incorporating them smoothly.
- Now, let’s introduce some depth of flavor. Add the sour cream, the mashed bananas, and the pure vanilla extract to the sugar-butter blend. Mix this tantalizing trio until they unite in sweet harmony.
- With patience and precision, gradually fold the dry ingredients into the wet mixture until they just dance together. Avoid overmixing; we want a graceful waltz, not a marathon!
- Lovingly transfer this divine batter into the awaiting loaf pan. Slide it into the oven and let it bake for 55-60 minutes, or until a toothpick emerges clean, signifying its readiness. While your bread is cooling, let’s conjure up the enchanting glaze.
- In a petite saucepan, let the brown sugar and butter come together in a gentle simmer over medium heat. Allow them to merge for about a minute, ensuring the sugar dissolves entirely.
- With a flourish, introduce the heavy cream to the pan and then gracefully withdraw it from the heat. Add the powdered sugar and kosher salt, whisking until a smooth, velvety symphony of flavors forms.
- Grant your glaze a brief reprieve, letting it cool for five minutes, before you gracefully pour it over your awaiting bread.
