½ cup Unsalted Butter, cut into chunks, plus more for pan
1 cup packed Light Brown Sugar 2 cups Mashed Ripe Bananas 2 large Eggs ½ tbsp Dark Rum (or Vanilla Extract) 1 tsp Salt 1 tsp ground Cinnamon A few gratings fresh Nutmeg (optional) 1 tsp Baking Soda 1 tsp Baking Powder
Scrape batter into prepared loaf pan. It should come to just over 1/2-inch from the top rim. Set aside while you prepare the caramelized banana topping.
In a small skillet, melt butter over medium-low heat. Press brown sugar onto each cut side of the banana. Place banana cut side down in skillet & cook until golden brown & caramelized, 4-5 minutes. Gently turn, using a fish spatula so the bananas don’t fall apart, & cook 2 minutes more. Remove from heat, let cool & place banana halves cut side up on top of batter in pan.
Bake banana bread for 55 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the center is batter-free. The bread will get dark, but will not taste burnt. Let cool & serve.

Scared of baking with whole grain? This bread doesn't have the bitter taste you'd associate with whole wheat, so it's great for the whole family! Want to sneak in more whole grain? Try our Whole Wheat Brownie Recipe, too!
Title says it all. Really can’t go wrong with the grains Barton Springs offers. However I’m not the biggest fan of the paper bags they come in. They just feel kind of flimsy, like to the point where I’m almost concerned the bag will break. I recommend moving them to another container. Great wheat berries tho!
Stone ground flour from Barton Springs Mill makes amazing sourdough bread
I purchased several stone ground heritage grain flour from Barton Springs Mill and tried multiple Ken Forkish bread loaf recipes , from his black bread to an emmer loaf. The breads turned out amazing and I know the flour made all the difference. I have plenty more loaves to make and I’m truly happy having my stash of flour from Barton Springs mill. I highly recommend giving these heritage grains a try. A very happy customer from Texas - who is delighted to purchase local .
