Stephanie’s Banana Bread

A friend of mine from Oregon told me about this new recipe for banana bread that her mom and her had been making. She said it was really good. I already have a banana bread recipe that I love, but I decided that her version sounded interesting. I got the recipe from her and gave it a try. I agree, it is really good. But it is not really a bread. This is more like a dessert. Don’t get me wrong, it was really, really good, but I would not eat this for breakfast.

My family loved this, even my daughter who does not really like bananas or banana recipes liked it. She said that it was really good and to please make it again. What makes this more like a dessert is the topping. It gives it a really nice glaze. In fact I think you could use this glaze on any banana bread to make it tastier and more dessert like.

I think the trick is to let the glaze soak in well. You need to let it cool most of the way in the pan. I did this and the glaze soaked into the bread, but I was still able to remove it easily from the pan.

I did make this a little healthier by adding half whole wheat pastry flour. That at least made me feel like I made something healthy.

    Thanks for joining us for Tasty Tuesday! I am a big fan of banana bread! I’ve never seen one with a glaze before…I bet it does seem like a dessert! I’m waiting for the bananas on our tree to get ripe and then I’m going to make quite a bit! They should be ready in a week or so. Thanks for the neat recipe!

  3. Kim, my daughter would love to live where we could have a banana tree!
