Recipe Details

  • Yield: 12-16 Servings
  • Course:
  1. For the topping, melt the butter in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the sugar and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Add the rum and cook until the sugar dissolves and the mixture thickens, about 2-3 minutes. Off the heat stir in the sliced bananas, turning to coat with the sugar mixture; reserve.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375F. Lightly butter an Anolon Vesta Cast Iron 12-inch skillet.
  3. Combine the sugar, melted butter and eggs in a medium bowl, stirring until well mixed. Stir in the mashed bananas, buttermilk and vanilla extract until smooth. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a separate bowl. Add flour mixture to banana mixture and stir until just moistened. Transfer to the prepared skillet. Place the sliced bananas on the batter and spoon the liquid left in the skillet over them.
  4. Bake in the center of the oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the banana bread comes out clean, about 42-44 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool 20-30 minutes before slicing.
