Toffee Banana Bread

  • Author: Laura | Tutti Dolci
  • Yield: 1 loaf, 12 slices

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup mashed ripe banana
  • 3/4 cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 Tbsp dark rum
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup toffee bits

Topping

  • 1/4 cup toffee bits

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and spray a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with nonstick spray. For the bread, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the center of the mixture. Combine mashed banana, yogurt, melted butter, egg, rum, and vanilla in a medium bowl; add to flour mixture and fold in until almost combined. Fold in pecans.
  2. Scrape half the batter into prepared pan and smooth with an offset spatula. Tap pan sharply to remove air bubbles, and sprinkle 1/2 cup toffee bits over batter. Add remaining batter, smooth with an offset spatula, and tap pan sharply. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup toffee bits.
  3. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes, until bread is golden and springs back to the touch (if desired, tent with foil after 30 minutes of baking time to prevent over-browning). Bread is done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean or with a few crumbs attached. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes; carefully remove bread from pan and cool completely.
