Eggnog Banana Bread With Eggnog Kahlua Glaze

When Jake came back from feeding our neighbor's cat, he had two blackened bananas in hand. "I'm thinking banana bread," he announced. Translation: Can you make some banana bread? Sure thing. I decided to try some banana bread with our perennial holiday favorite - eggnog.

1 C organic granulated sugar1/2 C butter, melted2 eggs2 t Kahula1 t pure vanilla extract2 ripe bananas1 C organic eggnog1 T organic milk2 1/4 C white whole wheat flour2 t baking powderground nutmegground cinnamonground cardamom

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter your baking dish. With these ingredients I made 12 muffins and an 8" round cake. In a large mixing bowl mash the bananas. Add eggnog, eggs, melted butter, milk, Kahlua, vanilla, then mix in sugar. Gently fold in flour, baking powder and spices. Stir until just moistened. Pour into buttered pan. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Let it cool for at least 10 minutes. Remove from pan. Serve with ice cream, homemade whipped cream, or my Eggnog Kahlua Glaze.
