This recipe was born when I thought I had Crema Mexicana, but to my surprise what I had was a large container of thick Greek yogurt. Well I substituted the yogurt for the crema and made my Mexican Rum Raisin Banana nut bread. It turned out delicious. My Mexican Rum Raisin Nut bread comes out super moist dense and delicious. It has been always been a family favorite. I like it better made with the Greek yogurt then with the crema Mexicana or Mexican sour cream. Try my recipe with or without the raisins and nuts. But do add the Rum. Toasted with melted butter it is to die for. Enjoy
