Ingredients

FOR THE BANANA BREAD

  • 3-4 over ripe bananas
  • 1/2 tsp bourbon extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 4 tbsp cold butter
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 tbsp light brown sugar

FOR THE SMOKED SALT HONEY BUTTER

  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp tupelo honey

Instructions

FOR THE BANANA BREAD

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Combine over ripe bananas, eggs and bourbon extract in a large bowl and mash until slightly chunky yet mostly smooth. Whisk in the cake mix for about 2 minutes. The batter should be pretty smooth but with a little bit of chunkiness because of the bananas.
  • Chop butter into tiny cubes and grease 2 loaf pans. Sprinkle each pan evenly with butter cubes, cinnamon and brown sugar. Pour in the banana bread mixture half way and bake for 40-45 minutes or until the bread is cooked through. Test by using a toothpick.
  • Remove banana bread from the loaf pans immediately and let it cool for 10-15 minutes before smothering it with honey butter.

FOR THE SMOKED SALT HONEY BUTTER

  • Mix together butter, tupelo honey and smoked sea salt the serve.
