Jamaican Banana Bread by Liane Brenner

Jamaican Banana Bread: perfect use of expiring bananas, quick & easy and simply mouthwatering!

3 bananas (brown spotted ones are recommended, adds natural sweetness!)
300 gr. flour
50 - 100 gr. sugar (Choose amount according to desired sweetness; less can be more & allows better taste for bananas. Tipp: use brown sugar with 2-3 tablespoons vanilla sugar added)
1 egg
Splash of salt
3 tablespoons baking powder
4 tablespoons margarine or butter
4cl Rum (I used honey flavored rum)
(Optional: raisins)
Crush bananas to mouse
Add rest of ingredients - the order does not matter
Grease baking pan & fill in dough.
Preheat oven to 180 degrees, bake for 45min until golden.

Perfect finish: glaze cold(!) cake with powdered sugar/lemon juice glaze

Add powdered sugar into bowl and add a squirt of lemon juice to it. Stir it. Keep repeating. You aim for a thick mass of glaze, not too liquid. Therefore easy on the juice! :)
If you want to add some kick to it, don't only use lemon juice but perhaps leftover white wine or splash of sangria! Whatever you find in your kitchen! Tasty!!
