How to Make Bourbon soaked raisin banana bread

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a medium size saucepan combine the raisins and the alcohol and bring to a boil over medium heat. Remove from heat and let stand one hour or overnight in the refrigerator. Before using in batter, discard any liquid that remains.
  • 2Position an oven rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 325°. Grease or spray with Pam a 9x5 loaf pan.
  • 3In large bowl combine all ingredients except for raisins and walnuts with electric mixer until well blended. With a spoon, stir in the raisins and walnuts.
  • 4Turn in to prepared loaf pan and bake for 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center emerges clean. Cool in the pan on a rack. Slice thin and serve at room temperature. It ALWAYS tastes better the next day.
  • 5*I frequently have bananas that go brown and I peel them and put them in freezer bags and freeze them. I then take them out a couple of hours ahead of time and use them in this recipe.
