The Ultimate Banana Butterscotch Bread

Butterscotch Banana Bread

By Larry Billinger

A bunch of browning bananas caught my eye in the bustling aisles of Dillons amidst the regular hustle and bustle. They were sitting in the sale bin, their yellow peels speckled with brown, whispering of potential and sweet treats. With these ripe bananas in my basket, I approached AI for a culinary challenge: to create a recipe that would embrace these five bananas in a delectable dance of flavors.

Enter the Banana Bread – a recipe born from a fusion of ripe bananas. However, I also had one bag of butterscotch chips, waiting patiently in my pantry for their moment. I asked AI to add the butterscotch chips to the recipe as well, and this is what happened.

The Recipe: A Symphony of Sweetness


  • 5 ripe bananas
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 bag (11 oz) butterscotch chips


  1. Preheat and Prepare: The journey begins at 350°F (175°C). A 9×5 inch loaf pan, greased lightly, stands ready.
  2. Mash and Merge: Bananas, ripe and eager, are mashed to a smooth consistency. Flour, baking soda, and salt join in a separate union.
  3. Cream and Combine: Butter and brown sugar whirl into a creamy dream. Eggs and bananas, blended in harmony, are introduced.
  4. The Twist: Vanilla extract and butterscotch chips bring their unique flair, mingling seamlessly with the batter.
  5. Bake and Await: The batter finds its home in the loaf pan. The oven, a chamber of transformation, works its magic for 80 to 85 minutes.
  6. Cool and Revel: The bread, now golden and fragrant, rests in its pan before being transferred to a wire rack.

The Result: A Culinary Masterpiece

The bread emerged victorious from the oven – moist and sweet, with a crust that held the perfect crisp. Each slice was a harmonious blend of banana and butterscotch, a testament to the beauty of culinary experimentation.
