Get ready to raid your liquor cabinet! A moist and delicious treat for any time of the day with ingredients you probably already have! My husband ate half a loaf in one sitting!! Haven't tried freezing yet as it doesn't last that long, but stays for at least a week in the fridge :)Makes 2 loaves.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix together 1/8 cup triple sec and 1/2 cup sugar and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  3. Mix together margarine and 1 1/2 cups sugar until creamy.
  4. Beat in eggs and bananas.
  5. Add flour, baking powder, salt and vanilla. Mix well.
  6. While mixer is still mixing, slowly add 1/3 cup of triple sec and 2 tablespoons orange juice.

this is really good! i think a little spice would be nice so i may add some cinnamon next time (hmm goldschlager instead of triple sec?) but yummy!

Very good! I used coconut rum liqeur and real unsalted butter instead, still tastes great. My husband doesn't even like bananas, and he gobbled it up!

Very moist and lush-shush, if you know what I mean ;) And this yummy banana bread is, I think, even better the day after baking. I followed your instructions almost exactly, only substituting butter for the margarine and adding an additional 5-10 minutes to the bake-time. My family requests that I make this again soon!
