Yield

one 9 x 5-inch loaf (12 servings)

Bread Ingredients

cooking spray
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 large very ripe bananas
1/2 cup caramel macchiato flavored liquid coffee creamer (such as International Delight®)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
2/3 cup granulated (white) sugar
2 tablespoons instant coffee granules

Glaze Ingredients

6 tablespoons unsalted butter
6 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Grease a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with Pan Release or baking spray with flour.

In a bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.

In a large mixing bowl, mash the bananas with a fork until almost smooth, and stir in the coffee creamer, vegetable oil, eggs, sugar, and instant coffee granules until the coffee granules have dissolved. Gradually stir in the flour mixture, about 1/2 cup at a time, until batter is almost smooth, and pour batter into the prepared loaf pan.

Bake in preheated oven for about 1 hour until a toothpick inserted into the center of the banana bread comes out clean. Allow to cool before removing from pan.

Melt the unsalted butter in a saucepan over medium heat, and mix in the brown sugar and vanilla extract. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar, and reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer the syrup for 3 minutes, allow to cool to a warm but liquid temperature, and pour the glaze over the banana bread. Serve when glaze has set.
