1 cup sugar ▢½ cup unsalted butter softened ▢½ cup creamy peanut butter divided ▢2 eggs ▢1 teaspoon vanilla extract ▢3 tablespoons milk ▢2 cups all-purpose flour ▢½ teaspoon salt ▢½ teaspoon baking soda ▢1 teaspoon baking powder ▢3 bananas overripe and mashed

Step -1

Preheat the oven to 325°F. Grease a 9 x 5 loaf pan and line with parchment paper, then set aside.

Step -2

In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the sugar, butter, and ¼ cup peanut butter until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, vanilla, and milk, and mix until smooth.

Step -3

Add the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder, and mix until just combined. Fold in the mashed bananas and pour into the prepared loaf pan.

Step -4

Scoop the remaining ¼ cup peanut butter into a ziplock bag, and cut the corner off the bag. Pipe three lines of peanut butter across the top of the batter, then drag a toothpick or skewer through the batter to swirl the peanut butter.

Step -5

Bake 60-70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
