I couldn't wait till tomorrow to try this great smelling aroma banana bread. I had to have a piece before bed. ( I will do extra laps around the yard tomorrow morning) This recipe was so easy to follow and it turned out wonderful and delicious. It was worth the trip to the liquor store to get the coconut rum ( I used Parrot Bay) I have to go get some flour tomorrow so I can finish up the rest of the bananas. Thanks so much for this great recipe Chef Dee

I chose to make this dish for the Chef Dee's Cook-A-Thon. We chose to take this to the State fair for our barn group to snack on, which did not last long, and everybody raved how good this was. Great recipe to try!

Wonderful recipe. I took it out of the oven at 50 minutes. The top was well done and I believe I should have taken it out at 40 minutes or at least covered the top with foil at 40 minutes. But...... sooo good! My husband has a strong disdain for coconut so I did not tell him that I added Malibu Coconut Rum to it - he LOVED it and said it was one of the best banana breads he had ever eaten. I think next time I would even add a little more coconut rum as I wished I tasted it a bit more (although then maybe hubby would not like it.) Anywooo Thank you Chef Dee for a wonderful recipe. It is going into my "This is How I Make My....." Cookbook - Our Highest honor! Hugs! Cheryl.
