Bananas Foster Bread

Okay, so I have never really eaten bananas foster. I planned to when Ian and I were in New Orleans. Only then we decided to bring Charlie with us, and Brennan’s did not appear the place to take a baby to brunch.

It’s been on my list of things to try and make at home, but I don’t particularly care to create fire in the kitchen. Although, I bet the kids would get a kick out of it.

I don’t even know why I want to try it, I’m not really one for rum. It just sounds delicious.

So when I found a recipe in Cooking Light for bananas foster bread, well bread and I you know, we got a thing going on. I knew I had to try it. Again, I’ve never had the real deal, so I cannot say if it has a similar taste or not. What I can say is that I don’t ever want to eat bananas without first cooking them in butter, brown sugar, and cognac.  I’m surprised they actually made it into the bread batter.

I adapted the recipe only slightly from this one in Cooking Light. It is easily the best banana bread  I have ever made.
