Banana Bread - All the sweet cakey goodness you would expect, with a nice sugary crust on top!

 1 cup Sugar
 1 stick Butter - Room Temperature
 2 Eggs
 3 Overripe Bananas
 1 tbsp Milk
 1 tbsp Cinnamon
 2 cups All Purpose Flour
 1 tsp Baking Soda
 1 tsp Baking Powder
 1 tsp Salt
 1 tsp Vanilla Extract or Vanilla Bean Paste
 Sugar for Topping

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.


In a mixer, cream together the sugar and butter until fluffy.


Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing on low to combine.


Mash the bananas in a small bowl. Add the milk, vanilla and cinnamon to the banana bowl and mix thoroughly.


In a small bowl, combine all of the remaining dry ingredients in a bowl. (Salt, Baking Powder, Baking Soda, Flour)


Add the banana mixture into the mixer, still on low.


Add the dry ingredients to the mixer and mix on low until everything is just combined. Do not over mix.


Pour the batter into a greased bread pan and top liberally with additional sugar.


Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour. You should be able to pull a toothpick out clean, if you can't add a few minutes at a time until you can.


Cool on a rack and then enjoy!
