Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread

We found this recipe a day or two before Christmas,
and decided to bake it as part of our Christmas morning brunch!
The cinnamon aroma was delightful,
and the bread was delicious in every way!
We decided then and there it should be a keeper,
and have already had several requests for the recipe!
So, here it is!
3 over-ripe bananas, smashed up
1/3 cup melted butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
I tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
dash of salt
1 1/2 cups of flour
For the swirl:
1/3 cup sugar
1 TB. cinnamon
1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Butter and flour a 9 X 5 loaf pan
2.  Mix bananas, butter, sugar, egg and vanilla together.  Sprinkle baking soda and salt around top of the banana mixture.  Then gently stir in flour.  Be careful not to over-mix!
3.  In a small dish, mix together the 1/3 cup sugar and 1 TB. cinnamon.
4.  Add 1/2 of the batter to the loaf pan and then sprinkle half, or a little more than half of the cinnamon-sugar mixture all over the batter in the pan.  Add the rest of the batter, and then sprinkle the leftover cinnamon-sugar on top.
5.  Bake for 50-60 minutes.
