Oh no not ANOTHER banana bread recipe. I can't help it, I always seem to have bananas that get ahead of me. My intentions are good but I forget about them. Before you know it they are turning black. This one has it's own good quality - hey it's got booze in it. How can you go wrong with that??
Bananas Foster Bread (Adapted from Cooking Light)
1 1/2 c mashed bananas (about 3)
1 c brown sugar (divided)
5 T butter
1/4 c dark rum
1/3 c buttermilk (or yogurt)
1 1/2 c flour
1/4 c ground flaxseed
3/4 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 t cinnamon
1/4 t allspice
1 T butter, melted
1 T dark rum
1/3 c confectioner's sugar
In a skillet combine bananas, 1/2 c brown sugar, butter, and rum. Cook until mixture begins to bubble. Remove from heat and add buttermilk to cool it down. Transfer to mixer. Add the remaining 1/2 c of brown sugar and the eggs.
Meanwhile in a separate bowl mix dry ingredients together.
Mix the banana mixture until combined. Add flour to banana mixture and mix until just blended. Pour into a greased 9x5 loaf pan. Bake at 350 (325 if glass) for 1 hour or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool on rack in pan for 10 minutes. Turn out onto cooling rack.
Meanwhile combine glaze ingredients and drizzle over warm cake.
I'm not such a good drizzler. I sort of pour it over and it didn't look so good. Then I spread it a little and it didn't look too much better. But the taste - YUM. I also used my long skinny loaf pan - thought I did some weirdo special effect with the photo huh?
