  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3 very ripe bananas (1 cup)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract (can substitute rum extract)
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
  • Brown Butter Icing:
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3 cups sifted powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons water
make it
Banana Bread:
Sift the flour, baking soda and salt into a medium bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl mash the peeled bananas with a fork. Combine the eggs, vanilla, buttermilk, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and mashed bananas with a whisk or electric mixer at medium speed. Do not over-mix. The mixture should be lumpy.

With a rubber spatula, mix in the flour mixture until just incorporated. Fold in the nuts and transfer the batter in to a buttered loaf pan.

Bake 45 minutes at 400 degrees F or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean. Cool completely on a wire rack.

Brown Butter Icing:
In a small saucepan heat the butter over medium heat until golden brown, stirring occasionally. Remove saucepan from heat; stir in 3 cups sifted powdered and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Stir in enough water to make the icing the right consistency to drizzle. Drizzle on banana nut bread.
