Bananas Foster Banana Bread

I love bananas.  Especially when they are baked in bread.

After 15 weeks of intense diet and exercise a few years ago, I was eager to get back into the kitchen and bake something that I hadn't had in a long time!  I decided on banana bread after stumbling across this incredible recipe.  It's a little more time consuming than a typical quick bread because of the streusel and rum sauce, but it's totally worth it.

Bananas Foster Banana Bread
Are you drooling yet?  You should be.  Here's what you'll need:

Bananas Foster Banana Bread
For the Bread:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
1 cup granulated sugar
½ cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
3 medium bananas, mashed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons milk

For the Streusel Topping:
1½ cups chopped walnuts
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
¼ cup dark brown sugar
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 tablespoons butter

For the Rum Glaze:
¼ cup (4 tablespoons) butter
2 tablespoons water
¼ cup light brown sugar
¼ cup dark rum

This recipe is full of so many flavors, but is LOADED in sugar.  I made it for a family event, which I recommend you do this Fall.  It's so good, one slice will satisfy your dessert craving!
 Happy Sunday Funday!
