I created this recipe, because I bought over ripe bananas & wanted a creative way to use them up.

I wanted a Banana Nut Bread, but not one that was plain & simple. I wanted one that could be appreciated by anyone that tasted it. I wanted it to be moist, tasty & full of nuts.

I shared with my neighbor,& with a friend & they both said it was outstanding. I hope you like it too. I recreated my old recipe to come up with this one, using applesauce instead of sour cream, making a glaze similiar to the one on my 7 up Pound Cake & & eleminating the cocoa & chocolate in the original recipe.YUM

How to Make BANANA GLAZED PRALINE TOPPED NUT BREAD

Step-by-Step

  1. This is my OVER THE TOP BANANA NUT BREAD. I BAKED IT IN MY 10 CUP Chicago Metallic Ribbon Pan. Spray pan liberally with non stick cooking spray, and set aside till needed. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Mix baking soda with Flour.
  3. Cream butter with sugar.
  4. Add eggs, and beat till mixed together.
  5. Mash bananas with potato masher then add along with butter flavor to egg mixture, just till mixed.
  6. Stir in half of flour mix, then add remaining half and beat again.
  7. Add applesauce & chopped nuts, then fold into cake batter with a spatula.
  8. Pour into prepared pan. Place in preheated 350 degree F. oven and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
  9. Melt 1/4 stick of butter in cast iron skillet and add chopped nuts.Stir Over low heat, until nuts are toasted about 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat, and spread on a large plate or platter and allow to cool.
  10. TO MAKE THE PRALINE TOPPING: To a medium sauce pan add the 5 tablespoons of butter, sugar, salt and 1/2 cup ginger ale. Stir to dissolve sugar. Place over low heat, while continuing to stir, allowing butter to melt, and let mixture come to a simmer and cook until it becomes thick & syrupy.
  11. Remove from heat, add the toasted nuts and the butter pecan flavoring. Stir to mix & drizzle over the top of cake and along the sides, allowing the glaze to fall along the sides. You are now done. Allow glaze to cool & then slice and serve plain with whipped topping or with your favorite ice Cream.
