Bananas Foster Bread

Yep. I added rum to my banana bread.

And it pretty much rocked.

You could totally substitute rum extract for the rum…but yeah, I went with the real thing.

Why not? Life is short.  🙂

I’m pretty much addicted to breakfast breads, and banana bread is my ultimate favorite.  And while I thought I already had a favorite banana bread recipe, now I’m not so sure.  I think I’m going to have to make a loaf of each side by side and do a taste test comparison.


This version of banana bread is just a little different from others I’ve baked in the past.  You start by mashing {about} three bananas and adding ’em to a pan with butter, brown sugar, and rum.  Cook the mixture until it boils.

Then you can either eat it with a spoon, or add it in with the rest of the ingredients to make your bread.  😉

And while I suppose the glaze is technically supposed to be drizzled over the top of the warm loaf, I smeared it on like butter instead.

And it was gooooooood.

Bananas Foster Bread
  • 1½ cups mashed ripe banana (about 3 medium)
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar, divided
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted and divided
  • ¼ cup dark rum, divided
  • ⅓ cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup ground flaxseed
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground allspice
  • ⅓ cup powdered sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Combine banana, ½ cup brown sugar, 5 tablespoons butter, and 3 tablespoons rum in a nonstick skillet. Cook over medium heat until mixture begins to bubble. Remove from heat; cool. Place banana mixture in a large bowl. Add yogurt, remaining ½ cup brown sugar, and eggs. Beat with a mixer at medium speed.
  3. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 5 ingredients (through allspice) in a small bowl. Add flour mixture to banana mixture; beat just until blended. Pour batter into a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven; cool 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack. Remove bread from pan; place on wire rack.
  4. Combine remaining 1 tablespoon melted butter, remaining 1 tablespoon rum, and powdered sugar; stir until well blended. Drizzle over the warm bread.

I hope you’re all having a great Monday! Can you believe it’s November already??

    This looks really good. The bananna bread with coconut and lime is so good, but this looks like it might be even better. And it has flaxseed in it so it’s a health food – well maybe.

    I’d like to make this but don’t have flaxseed. Can you recommend a substitute? My Google search says that it is used by vegans as a sub for eggs… But the recipe calls for eggs. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello There!

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking.  In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
