If banana bread isn’t the most glowed up hero of quarantine this year, I don’t know who or what is. I swear in the beginning few months of quarantine, there was a new flavor combo of banana bread every single week. Some were amazing, some were… different.
I mean, to each their own, and I am ALWAYS here for banana bread… classic or new, but lately I’ve been loving just going back to the basics (with a twist here and there).
I like to classify this banana bread as classic with a twist. Pecans in banana bread is the farthest thing from revolutionary. Hell, I can imagine my grandma would probably be horrified if I made a banana bread without pecans in or on top of it. But, the twist comes in by way of the easiest 2 ingredient caramelized pecans, and brown butter in place of regular butter. Basically all of the same ingredients as a normal pecan banana bread, but leveled up by preparing things a bit differently.
Best of both worlds if you ask me!
If you made this recipe, I’d love to see it! Let me know in the comments or tag me on IG at @simply_unbeetable 🙂
