Ingredients

Bread

2
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
3
teaspoons baking powder
1/2
teaspoon kosher (coarse) salt
1/2
cup unsalted butter, softened
1
cup packed light brown sugar
2
eggs
3
teaspoons vanilla
3
ripe bananas, mashed

Glaze

2
tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4
cup packed light brown sugar
2
teaspoons whipping cream
1/3
cup powdered sugar
1/4
teaspoon kosher (coarse) salt

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 9x5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
  • 2 In medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt; set aside. In large bowl, beat 1/2 cup butter and 1 cup brown sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating just until combined. Beat in vanilla and bananas until well blended. Gradually add flour mixture, beating on low speed just until incorporated. Pour batter into pan.
  • 3 Bake 45 to 55 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 20 minutes. Run knife around edges to loosen loaf; remove from pan to cooling rack.
  • 4 In small saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons butter and 1/4 cup brown sugar to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly with whisk. Boil and stir 1 minute. Stir in whipping cream. Remove from heat; stir in powdered sugar and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Immediately drizzle over loaf (glaze will harden quickly).

Expert Tips

To test the bread’s doneness, stick a clean skewer or toothpick in the center. If it comes out clean, the bread is done.

This bread is great served warm; toast in a toaster oven, if desired.
