Ingredients

For the banana bread:

  • All-purpose flour, 2 cups   
  • Baking soda, ¾ teaspoon
  • Salt, ½ teaspoon
  • Raw or turbinado sugar, 1 cup 
  • Butter, ¼ cup (melted)
  • 2 large eggs (at room temperature)
  • Mashed ripe banana, 1 ½ cups 
  • Plain low-fat yogurt, ¼ cup 
  • Dark rum, 3 tablespoons
  • Vanilla extract, ½ teaspoon
  • ½ cup plus 1 tbsp sweetened flaked coconut (divided)

For the lime glaze:

  • Powdered sugar, ½ cup 
  • Freshly squeezed lime juice, 1 ½ tablespoon

Step By Step Instructions To Make Jamaican Banana Bread

Step 1

Heat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 2

Stir together salt, baking soda, and all-purpose flour in a bowl. Keep aside. Using an electric mixer, combine raw sugar and melted butter in a large bowl. 

Step 3

After that, add one egg at a time. After each addition, beat until smooth.

Step 4

Mix the wet ingredients with bananas, low-fat yogurt, dark rum, and vanilla extract. Combine all ingredients thoroughly. After that, add the dry ingredients. Using a low speed, mix until just combined.

Step 5

Mix in ½ cup sweetened flaked coconut. Be careful not to overmix the batter.

Step 6

Prepare a 9×5 inch loaf pan by spraying it with non-stick cooking spray and lining it with parchment paper (leave some paper hanging on both sides to aid in removing the Jamaican banana bread with rum). After that, transfer the banana bread batter to the loaf pan you prepared. Add 1 tablespoon of sweetened flaked coconut on top.

Step 7

Until ready, bake in the preheated oven for 60 minutes. By inserting a toothpick into the center of the moist banana bread, you can determine whether the bread is ready. If it comes out clean, the bread is ready.

Step 8

You can cover the banana bread with aluminum foil if it has already turned golden brown but is not yet ready inside.

Step 9

As the bread bakes, prepare the lime glaze. Prepare the powdered sugar mixture by mixing it with lime juice in a bowl. Separately set aside.

Step 10

After removing the banana bread from the oven, let it cool on a cooling rack. Once the bread has been removed from the pan, let it cool. Drizzle lime glaze over the cake and place it on the cooling rack. Make sure it cools completely before handling. After that, slice and enjoy!
