Banana Caramel Pecan Bread

Ready to be put into the oven!

I got this recipe off of a friend's blog and decided to give it a try.

Caramel Pecan Banana Bread

2 cups flour

1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed

1 1/4 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

2 ripe large bananas

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled

1/3 cup vanilla yogurt

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1/3 cup chopped pecans

half a package (5.5 oz package) Werther's chewy caramels, chopped

In large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In medium bowl, mash the bananas. Add the eggs, melted butter, yogurt, and vanilla and combine well. Lightly fold the wet ingredients into the dry mixture until just combined. Don't overmix.

Pour batter into greased 9-inch loaf pan. Sprinkle the chopped caramels and chopped pecans over the top of the batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes until bread is golden brown and toothpick comes out clean.

The finished product!
I'll wait until my husband is home before sampling, but it sure looks good! :)
