For the prettiest loaf, make sure the butter is chilled when beaten into the batter. You can use gold rum in place of dark, if you wish.

How to Make It

Step 1

Lightly coat an 8 x 4-inch loaf pan with cooking spray; dust with 1 1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour. Set aside.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 3

Lightly spoon 1 cup all-purpose flour and whole wheat flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flours, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg; stir with a whisk to combine.

Step 4

Combine sugar and 1/4 cup butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy (about 3 minutes). Add egg substitute; beat until combined. Beat in banana, rum, and vanilla. Add flour mixture to banana mixture; beat on low speed just until combined. Scrape batter into prepared pan with a spatula; smooth top. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes; gently remove from oven, and drizzle top with 1 tablespoon melted butter. Bake an additional 10 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Very plain bread, but the melted butter topping lent a nice crispiness to it! I don't understand the issue of the butter having to be chilled when preparing. It took forever to get the lumps creamed in with the brown sugar. Next time I make this, I will let butter soften. As other reviewers mentioned, I too did not taste enough rum---will add a little more next time I make this.

This was tasty, mine didn't have an overwhelming banana taste at all. Very subtle and loved the nutmeg in this. Will definitely make it again.

I couldn't taste the rum in the bread; it was overpowered by the bananas. I thought it tasted like regular banana bread and wasn't as moist as my favorite banana bread recipe, so I won't be making this again. Good idea though.
