Bananas Foster Bread Recipe

How does one get the traditional flavors of Bananas Foster without lighting their dessert on fire?  This Bananas Foster Bread Recipe is just the thing.  Don’t get me wrong I do love the desired effect that bananas foster originated with. Whipping up a sauce of butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, dark rum, and banana liqueur and pouring that over a bananas and vanilla ice cream just to catch it on fire but not always an appropriate dish to do with the kids or on Tuesday night dinner.

Bananas Foster Bread

Bananas Foster Bread is one of the ways I’m serving bananas foster to my family and I can assure you there have been no complaints.  Talk about homemade banana bread on steroids!  The sauce is the key here and yes it does make it a bit stickier than normal banana bread but it truly takes it to the next level.  Who doesn’t love something with an added butter and brown sugar sauce?

    The first time I had bananas foster was in college. I took public speaking as a summer class, and for one of his speeches a classmate/chef demonstrated how to make bananas foster. He even had little dixie cups of ice cream in a cooler to serve it on.

    It was awesome.

    Bananas were on sale 38 cents/pound over the weekend and I grabbed a bunch, pun totally intended, and guess what we’ll be eating?! This bread looks sinfully awesome.
