Sun-Maid Raisin Cinnamon Swirl Bread!
It can work wonders.

I don’t know about you but, brunch is back. I absolutely love having brunch and even brinner sometimes but, I’m a fan for the sweet tooth side of brunch. Sun-Maid sent me a few coupons for Sun-Maid Raisin Bread and I loved the idea of this recipe, I decided to share my version of it with you guys!

Brunch is a fun, easy and affordable way to connect with family and friends–doesn’t take much to plan! You don’t have to worry about slaving away in the kitchen or having someone watch the kiddos while you cook.

Did You Know?

In a recent survey conducted by Angus Reid, 80% of Canadian families stated they would consider a festive brunch in place of the typical dinner this holiday season because it offers a change of pace and ample time ton enjoy with guests.

Who woulda thunk?

Well, I agree, brunch is easy and this recipe is my twist to a banana foster dessert brunch dish. You can eat this on it’s own or in place of french toast, crepes or even pancakes and you will be equally as satisfied. Or if you’ve come with a big appetite, save it for dessert.


Things You Will Need:
  • 6 slices of Sun-Maid Raisin Cinammon Swirl Bread
  • 2 bananas
  • 3 tbsp. of brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp. of butter or margarine
  • 1/2 a tsp. of vanilla
  • 1/2 a tsp. of cinnamon (or to taste)
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup of heavy whipping cream
  • 1 sauce pan
  • 1 muffin baking tin
  • whipped cream (optional)
Serves: 6



Take butter or margarine and coat your muffin/cupcake tin with a brush or use a cooking spray so that the bread doesn’t stick. To make the cups from the Sun-Maid raisin bread, start pushing in the bread softly in the center, once it’s cupped in the middle–pull the corners up and place into the tin. If they rip, it’s okay–try to shape and mold them into cups as best as you can and place in oven for about 10 minutes or until toasted.

Heat: 350 degrees

Banana Foster Filling:

Take 3 tbsp. of butter/margarine and place it in sauce pan. Begin to melt on medium heat on the stove. Add 3tbsp. of brown sugar into mixture, make sure to stir well until sugar becomes part of the mixture.

Add 3/4 cup of heavy whipping cream and mix well. Add 1/2 tsp. of vanilla extract, 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg.

Combine well and let it simmer, if you aren’t using a non-stick pan, continue to stir frequently and fold the mixture from the outside in.  Once the bananas are nice and soft and the filling has thickened, take off the heat and let cool slightly.


And Enjoy!

Carefully take the Sun-Maid Raisin Cinnamon Swirl Bread cups out of the tin. Place on serving plate and spoon in the Banana Foster mixture into the cups. Top with whipped cream and if you’re so inclined, add a bit of chocolate!
