Biscoff Banana Bread

If you have never had a biscoff cookie then you are missing out.  They are delicious!  I had my first one on a plane ride to San Diego.  So good! I did a little research and apparently biscoff cookies are European and were made popular as inflight snacks. 

Biscoff cookies are crunchy with a caramelized flavor.  I normally prefer soft cookies but I will make a exception for biscoff cookies.    When I saw a jar of biscoff spread at the grocery store I knew I had to get it.  So good on a bagel.  The biscoff spread is also a great substitute for peanut butter. 

Biscoff Banana Bread
From Kirbie's Cravings

1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons baking soda
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 cup biscoff spread

1.  Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.  Grease four 6x2 inch mini loaf pans
2.  In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar.
3.  Blend in eggs, mashed bananas, sour cream, and vanilla extract.
4.  Mix salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and flour.
5.  Pour half of dry mixture into butter mixture.  Put half of biscoff spread into batter.  Use remaining dry mixture.  Put the other half of biscoff spread into batter.
6.  Divide into prepared pans.
7.  Bake for 30-35 minutes, until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

The taste of biscoff is very light in this bread but yet just right.  However, the smell of this bread is a-maz-a-balls!  When baking the whole house fills with cinnamon, biscoff, and banana. You can spread a little butter on the bread or some biscoff spread would work too.  I prefer to eat the bread plain. 

I shared these at a Tzu Chi meeting and by the end of the meeting I did not see any left on the plate.  I usually judge a recipe's success on how much is leftover and if people choose to take the leftover.

It's a new year so try new things!
