    0Types Available

    Ingredients

    2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened

    2 tablespoons cream cheese

    1 cup white sugar

    1 egg

    2 cups all-purpose flour

    2 teaspoons baking powder

    ½ teaspoon baking soda

    ⅛ teaspoon salt

    1 cup mashed overripe bananas

    ½ cup milk

    2 tablespoons dark rum, or rum flavoring

    ½ teaspoon lime zest

    2 teaspoons lime juice

    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    ¼ cup chopped toasted pecans

    ¼ cup flaked coconut

    Topping

    ¼ cup brown sugar

    2 teaspoons unsalted butter

    2 teaspoons lime juice

    2 teaspoons dark rum, or rum flavoring

    2 tablespoons chopped toasted pecans

    2 tablespoons flaked coconut

    Directions

    Step 1

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease two 8x4 inch loaf pans.

    Step 2

    Beat together 2 tablespoons of softened butter and cream cheese in a large bowl until fluffy. Slowly beat in sugar until well incorporated. Add the egg and mix well. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl. In a different bowl, mix together the bananas, milk, 2 tablespoons rum, lime zest, lime juice, and vanilla extract; stir well. Pour 1/3 of the flour mixture into the butter and mix well. Mix in 1/2 of the mashed bananas. Continue with another 1/3 of the flour, followed by the remaining banana mixture, and finally the remaining flour. Fold in 1/4 cup pecans and 1/4 cup coconut flakes.

    Step 3

    Pour the mixture into the loaf pans, and bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about one hour. When finished, cool for 10 minutes in the pan, remove, and finish cooling on a wire rack.

    Step 4

    After you take the banana bread out of the oven, prepare the topping by stirring together the brown sugar, remaining butter, lime juice, and 2 teaspoons of rum in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a simmer stirring constantly; cook until the sugar has dissolved, and the mixture is smooth, about one minute. Remove from heat, and stir in 2 tablespoons pecans, and 2 tablespoons coconut. Spoon this topping over the loaves while they are still warm. The topping will harden slightly when the loaf cools.
