Banana bread gets a delicious, boozy twist straight out of The Big Easy.

Although this banana bread recipe takes a big cue from the New Orleans classic Bananas Foster, you won’t have to flambé anything! If you’re worried about not cooking out the alcohol in the glaze, you can substitute it with fresh lemon or orange juice. Serve slices of the bread with fresh vanilla ice cream or give away individual breads as gifts. EQUIPMENT NOTE: You will need a stand mixer with a whisk attachment or a handheld mixer and a mini loaf or muffin tin
