And the color....deep caramel, rich butterscotch flavor. It tastes so buttery and rich, but there's not a drop of butter in it! The first time I heard of this butterscotch and banana combination I was just a little bit skeptical, but guys, this is beyond wonderful - a match made in heaven!
And like I do with so many of my other banana bread recipes (original Banana Bread, Chocolate Chip Banana Bread, Dark Chocolate Raspberry Banana Bread, Strawberry Banana Bread...) I like to glaze the warm loaves with maple syrup after taking them out of the oven. Not only does it create a beautiful glaze, but it seals in all that wonderful moisture and flavor.
I'll be making up a selection of our favorite banana bread recipes for our annual Easter Brunch, and this one is going to fit right in. Hope that you'll give this a try too, and let me know how your family loves it!
