For the Banana Bread:

  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 large eggs

For the Salted Caramel Sauce:

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt (adjust to taste)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas with a fork. Add melted butter and mix well.
  3. Add the granulated sugar, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and eggs to the banana mixture. Mix until well combined.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and a pinch of salt.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the banana mixture, stirring until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan.
  7. In a small saucepan, make the salted caramel sauce. Heat the granulated sugar over medium heat, stirring constantly until it melts and turns a golden brown color. Add the butter and stir until melted. Slowly add the heavy cream while stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in the sea salt. Let the caramel sauce cool slightly.
  8. Drizzle about 1/3 to 1/2 of the salted caramel sauce over the banana bread batter in the pan. Use a knife or toothpick to swirl the caramel into the batter.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven for 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  10. Once the banana bread is done, remove it from the oven and let it cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
  11. Drizzle the remaining salted caramel sauce over the cooled banana bread before serving.
  12. Slice and enjoy your delicious salted caramel banana bread!

Feel free to adjust the amount of salt in the caramel sauce to suit your taste preferences. Enjoy your homemade treat!
