Hubby left me with bananas on the counter before heading east to meet our newest granddaughter and what could I do, but come up with something I've never done before.
Brown Butter Banana~Almond Tea Bread
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted and browned
3 large banana, peeled and mashed
1 can (8oz) Almond Paste, crumbled
1 cup granulated sugar
3 large eggs
1/2 tsp. Almond Extract
3 cups King Arthur all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup chopped nuts (almonds, pecans, walnuts)
Preheat oven to 350F-degrees. Spray 1 Tea Loaf Pan-12" x 4" x 2 1/2" or 2 regular loaf pans with a baking spray.
In a medium saucepan, heat the butter over low heat until melted and golden brown. Add the mashed bananas to the butter and stir to combine.
In a stand mixer, using the whisk attachment, beat the sugar and almond paste to combine. Add the banana/butter mixture and mix once again. While mixer is running, add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the extract and scrape down the sides, if needed.
Allow tea bread to cool about 7 to 10 minutes, then, invert onto a serving plate. Cool bread before slicing.
I hope you like the apron because the flowers...and colors really appealed to me. Just post a comment, anytime this month (which is fleeting) and you could be the lucky one chosen by it:-D Enjoy!
