Bananas Foster Bread and Muffins

This is the best banana bread recipe. With a little pat of butter, these bananas foster bread slices and  muffins are addictive. I use very ripe, brown bananas (of frozen bananas), light rum, brown sugar to make a caramelized banana foster flavor, and gives additional depth to the bread.

Adapted from Cooking Light

  • 1 1/2  cups  mashed ripe banana
  • 1  cup  packed brown sugar, divided
  • 5  tablespoons  butter, melted and divided
  • 1/8  cup  light rum, divided
  • 1/3  cup  plain fat-free yogurt
  • 2  large eggs
  • 1 3/4 cup  all-purpose flour
  • 3/4  teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 3/4  teaspoon  ground cinnamon
  • Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350°. Combine banana, 1/2 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 1/2 cup brown sugar, and eggs. Beat with a mixer at medium speed. Weigh or lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 5 ingredients  in a small bowl. Add flour mixture to banana mixture; beat just until blended. Pour batter into a loaf pan coated with cooking spray or muffin tins. Bake at 350° for 1 hour (for a large loaf), 30-40 minutes for muffins. Remove from oven; cool 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack. Remove bread from pan; place on wire rack.
