  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup Double Barrel Honey
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups mashed ripe bananas (about 4 medium bananas)

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

    2. In a mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and Double Barrel Honey until light and fluffy.

    3. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then add the vanilla extract, mashed bananas, and buttermilk or yogurt. Mix until well combined.

    4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

    5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.

    6. If using nuts or chocolate chips, gently fold them into the batter.

    7. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan, spreading it evenly.

    8. Bake in the preheated oven for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

    9. Allow the banana bread to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.

    10. Slice and serve the Double Barrel Honey Banana Bread, enjoying the delightful flavors of bourbon-infused honey and ripe bananas!

    This delicious twist on classic banana bread will surely be a hit, offering a subtle hint of bourbon flavor from the honey.
