Boozy Banana Bread


Banana bread at its best. Lots of bananas and a hint of almond and almond liqueur make a delicious banana bread--I love it served with butter.

1 loaf


  • cooking spray

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 5 very ripe bananas, mashed

  • ¾ cup brown sugar

  • ½ cup butter, softened

  • 2 eggs

  • 3 drops almond extract

  • 3 drops amaretto (almond-flavored liqueur)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray.

  2. Whisk flour, salt, and baking soda together in a bowl.

  3. Mix bananas, brown sugar, butter, eggs, almond extract, and amaretto together in a separate bowl. Add flour mixture; mix just until flour is incorporated, about 1 minute. Transfer mixture to the prepared loaf pan.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Let cool before serving, about 30 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Substitute 1/2 cup egg substitute (such as Egg Beaters(R)) for the eggs if desired.
