I have to admit, I’m kind of picky about bananas. I don’t like them much once they get brown and spotty. We’ve had a few that I’ve been avoiding, not wanting to toss, but not wanting to eat, either. Sooo… I made some banana bread! I basically used the recipe for Yellowman’s Banana Lime Bread from the Sundays at Moosewood cookbook, but I made a few changes. There’s a link to the original recipe here. I left out the coconut (didn’t have any), and used this recipe for the icing:
1 package cream cheese (4 oz)
1 cup powdered sugar (or to taste)
juice of 1/2 lime (about 1 Tbsp.)
1 Tbsp. rum
Mix until smooth
This recipe makes more than you need for one loaf, so you may want to cut it in half. However, it’s so good that I figure we’ll use the leftover.
