 Ingredients List

  • 4 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup walnuts
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons dark rum
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


Preheat the oven to 350F. Mash the bananas using the back of the spoon, until mushy.

Put the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium-sized bowl and, using your hands or a wooden spoon, combine well. In a large bowl, mix the melted butter, sugar and beat until blended, beat in the eggs one at a time, then the mashed bananas. Then, with your wooden spoon, stir in the walnuts, dark rum and vanilla extract. Add the flour mixture, a third at a time, stirring well after each batch. Scrape into a loaf tin and bake in the middle of the oven for 1-1 1/4 hours. When it’s ready, an inserted toothpick or fine skewer should come out clean. Leave in the tin on a rack to cool, and eat thickly or thinly sliced, as you prefer.
