Maple syrup banana bread

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a 9x5 bread loaf pan with vegetable shotening.
  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk together flour, salt and baking soda. Set aside.
  • Using an electric hand mixer, cream the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy (3 minutes). Add in the maple syrup and mix for one more minute. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  • Beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Blend in smashed bananas and vanilla extract and mix until completely incorporated.
  • With the mixer on low speed, add half of the flour mixture and beat until just combined. Add in the sour cream until well blended. Then, add in the rest of the flour mixture. DON'T overmix, the less you mix the lighter and fluffier the bread will be.
  • Pour batter in prepared bread pan. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until a knife comes out clean in the center. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to completely cool.

Maple bacon glaze

  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the confectioner's sugar and maple syrup. Crumble up bacon. Drizzle glaze over bread and layer with bacon pieces. Serve and enjoy!
