Sweet, soft banana bread is loaded with the flavor you already love and topped with a new, rich dulce de leche glaze that you won’t be able to get enough of.
By Michelle Verkade
This is what breakfast, snack, and dessert all rolled into one glorious quick bread looks like.
It’s basically a crime not to make this, because, wait for it–
Drum roll please…
The glaze is made of dulce de leche.
If I hated banana bread, I would eat this just for the glaze. But I don’t hate banana bread. And I
don’t hate dulce de leche.
