I can not reiterate enough how much I enjoy this bread. From time to time, I give this Bananas Foster Bread and Muffins as a gift or a special treat to friends.
The reason this bread is that special is that it is moist from yogurt and eggs, full of caramelized banana flavor and has a depth of flavor from light rum and turbinado sugar. Add a little pat of butter onto a freshly toasted slice of Bananas Foster Bread and it is pure comfort.
I made mini muffins (1 tablespoon of filling for each mini muffin tin) and adjusted the cooking time to 25-30 minutes versus 30-40 minutes. Additionally, to add a sweet crunch, I added a layer of turbinado sugar to the tops of the bread and muffins. I think when I compare the mini muffins versus mini loafs of bread, the moistness is retained in the loaves versus mini muffins. Lesson learned, going forward I will only make loaves.
Melted brown sugar and butter
