How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees…
  • Apply cooking spray and flour to coat 2 loaf pans….
  • Now have 3 different sized bowls ready to use. One large bowl, one medium bowl, and one small metal bowl. Place the small metal bowl in your freezer till needed.
  • In the large bowl combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and cinnamon. Mix together well with a whisk.
  • In the medium sized bowl place the bananas and mash them into small pieces. Then add to them the oil, vanilla, eggs, buttermilk and Rum.
  • Form a well in the middle of the flour mixture, and pour the liquid ingredients into the well. Slowly fold/stir together with a spatula very gently until just combined (if you over mix this your bread will not turn out as good as it should)
  • Next, get out your electric hand mixer and remove the small metal bowl from the freezer. Pour in the heavy cream and start mixing on low for a minute. Then increase speed to medium and while on medium speed add the 3 TBSP sugar. Turn the speed to high and continue blending until soft peaks form.
  • Fold this whipped cream gently into the batter. Again just until it just blends together.
  • Pour the batter gently into the pans distributing the batter evenly careful not to shake or bang the pans. The batter will settle on its own.
  • Bake for about 25 to 35 minutes. You will need to start checking at 25 minutes and go from there. All ovens and times will vary so I suggest 25 minutes to start checking so you don’t over bake. Use a long wooden skewer to check for doneness. When ready remove from oven and cool for 10 minutes before removing loaves from the pans. Enjoy!!!
  • Additional note: feel free to add toasted nuts of any kind or to frost the top of the loaves with your favorite frosting when cooled. I suggest a thin caramel glaze on top with fresh cream or vanilla ice cream and a warm slice of bread…MMMMM, if your real daring try sprinkling the top of your loaf with turbinado sugar and brulee it!

    Not to sound you think your recipe could be adapted for a bread machine? I would love to try to do that. Any thoughts? This sounds like the most awesome bread!
