Ingredients

Banana Bread

  • 4 overripe bananas
  • 1/4 c . butter melted
  • 1/2 c . granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 T . vanilla
  • 1 ½ c . all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp . baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp . salt

Browned Butter Glaze

  • 1/4 c . butter
  • 1/2 c . powdered sugar
  • 2-3 T . milk

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat bananas until mashed.
  • Add butter and sugar, and beat until well-combined.
  • Mix in egg and vanilla.
  • Add flour, baking soda, and salt; stir in until just incorporated.
  • Bake for 45-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, and then remove to a wire rack to finish cooling.
  • To make the glaze, add butter to a heavy saucepan.
  • Cook butter over medium heat until it starts to foam, stirring frequently.
  • Stop stirring, and let it continue to cook until amber brown.
  • Remove from heat, and stir in powdered sugar and enough milk to make glaze desired consistency. If your powdered sugar is lumpy, sifting it will help make the glaze smoother.
  • Drizzle over cooled banana bread.
