Bundt Pan Banana Bread


My banana bread is doing double duty for dinner tonight!
First of all, it's serving as the centerpiece of the table
 on top of my new "old" breadboard.




I love how huge it is...plenty of room for a large cake plate, serving 
dishes and something to spread on the bread.




Since I'm serving this bread for dessert, I'm replacing
the typical butter with some homemade buttercream frosting.
See that frosting getting all melty?  The bread was still
warm when I ate it.  The cook has to test the food before
it's served, right? ha.



Yum.


Bundt Pan Banana Bread

4 ripe bananas, sliced
1 1/2 c sugar
4 eggs
1 stick of butter, melted
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Mix above ingredients in electric mixer.

In a separate bowl, sift...

3 1/2 c flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg

Add the dry ingredients to the mixer, alternating with

1/2 c buttermilk

Mix on low just until combined.

Bake at 350 in a greased bundt pan
for 55-60 minutes.  Toothpick test.

  5. Oh yum, and I love out it looks made in the bundt pan. Now Betsy...that is some SERIOUS drizzle. What a tasty and lovely centerpiece.
    Today was cookie day and one of the older boys when he got his cookies, ask if I ever made white chocolate maccadamion (sp) cookies. I said with a smile..if you by the nuts...$15.00 at Costco.... HaHa. Beggers can't be choosers....right.. HaHaHa.

    1. Smearing frosting isn't nearly as pretty as drizzle....maybe I should call it smearzzle. hahaha....

      Oh, that boy has some good but expensive taste in cookies! lol....

    2. I love it ~ we have a new word....smearzzle. I think it love just lovely...I want a slice. I will try your recipe next time. It's very similar to mine, but I love trying new things and then I can smearzzle it.

      Delete
    3. I love that word too...Smearzzle...just saying it is fun.
      I definitely am going to make this bread in a bundt pan. Never thought of doing it that way before.
      Now I am getting hungry.

    4. lol....Oh, what have we started...hilarious! Yes, it is very fun to say!
      I love baking bread in a bundt pan...or tube pan. Just double any favorite sweet bread recipe and it takes about an hour to bake.

  6. So... when you cut me a piece, make it a much bigger piece, please.
    This recipe just might have to replace my Aunt Dorthy's old family recipe, especially with the frosting!

    1. I had a cup of frosting left over and in the freezer....it came in really handy to pull that out today!
      One gigantic piece coming up....I'll cut one for me, too! :)

      in case you forgot an ingredient in haste. lol...

    1. Does that mean you want your slice without the frosting? ha.

  13. doesn't buttermilk just make the best baked goods? Looks beautiful. I will sometimes use my banana cake recipe instead of bread. Lighter, sweeter texture. Kind of cheating though. I want the frosting and a scoop of vanilla ice cream here!

    1. Come to think of it, I think this banana bread recipe was originally a sheet cake years ago! Then I added the buttermilk...it does make everything moist and yummy! I love your idea of the ice cream...the finishing touch!
