|Jamaican Banana Bread|
Bring the Caribbean to your house with this outstanding banana bread. The best you’ll ever eat!
Here’s another goodie I found from Maria from Maria’s Mixing Bowl. She posted it on her Facebook page and when I saw it I knew I had to make it.
First of all, I’m nuts for coconut, so anything that has it as an ingredient, I know I’ll like. My favorite quick bread is banana bread so it was a marriage of two things I happen to love.
|Rich texture and terrific taste!|
I did change a couple of things from the original. I used sour cream in place of plain yogurt because I didn’t have yogurt and I substituted vanilla for coconut extract, which I had on hand and thought would be better.
The glaze I made with the rum, although the original called for lemon juice. I also omitted the 2 tbs of coconut in the glaze. I love the stuff, but to me, that was sort of overkill. But if you think you’d like it, then just add it!
|A very adult glaze, but it can be made with lemon juice.|
This recipe is a real keeper. Everyone who tasted it loved it. You really can’t stop at one slice!
