Homemade caramelized Banana's Foster are the base for this otherwise traditional bread. What a great way to spice up this favorite treat.

  • Servings: 8

Ingredients:

2 Medium Firm Bananas, peeled
1 Tbsp Butter
6 Tbsp Light Brown Sugar
¼ cup Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice
⅛ tsp Cinnamon
1 cup All Purpose Flour
½ cup Whole Wheat Flour
½ cup Cornmeal
2 tsp Baking Powder
½ tsp Salt
Fresh Ground Pepper, to taste
3 Large Eggs, lightly beaten
½ cup Buttermilk
1 Tbsp Butter, melted
1 Tbsp Honey
2 cups Coarsely Mashed Caramelized Bananas Foster

Directions:

First prepare your caramelized bananas by cutting the bananas in half lengthwise. Melt butter in a nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add brown sugar and lay the banana slices on top, cut side up. Cook undisturbed for 20 seconds, then add rum, or orange juice, and cinnamon. Cook for 10 seconds, then turn bananas carefully and cook for 45-60 seconds more, basting with the pan sauce. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place a 9 inch iron skillet in the oven to heat.

Whisk the flour, whole wheat flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, and pepper in a large mixing bowl. Whisk the eggs, buttermilk, butter, and honey in a medium bowl, then add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients. Preferably mix with a rubber spatula. Stir in the coarsely mashed Bananas Foster. Remove the hot skillet from the oven and coat it with cooking spray. Pour in the batter, spreading evenly. Bake the bread until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 20-25 minutes.
