  • 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.
