Rum Banana Bread

I’ve always loved my mother’s banana bread recipe but when it’s a winter storm warning outside, it’s time to play in the kitchen.  Bananas and rum go together in a variety of different recipes so I decided to add some rum (real and extract) to my banana bread and it had delicious results.

Rum Banana Bread

1/3 cup butter, softened
2/3 cups sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 3/4 cups flour
3 ripe bananas, mashed
½ tsp rum extract

2 tbsp rum

Cream together butter and sugar.  Add in eggs and mashed bananas.  Gradually add in dry ingredients.  Bake in a greased loaf pan for 70 minutes at 325°.
