dead computer. getting angry, punching a pillow, more than a little pouting.
what do you do when your computer is dead and you don't have a new one yet...and you have a blog?
i don't know.
i appear to be borrowing someone's computer, loving up on instagram, and making banana bread to comfort my soul.
i got my hands on some finger limes for the first time, and they are crazy cool. i couldn't help but to squeeze some of the crunchy little lime beads into the glaze.
Vanilla Rum Banana Bread with Kaffir Lime Glaze
adapted from Cooking Light
2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup (4 tbsp) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 tbsp dark rum
1/4 cup sour cream
1 1/2 cups mashed bananas, about 3
finger lime (optional but fun)
preheat oven to 350. sift or whisk the flour, baking soda, and salt together. beat the butter and sugar in an electric mixer for a few minutes. add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. add the vanilla, rum, sour cream, and mashed banana. then add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. scrape into a 9x5 inch loaf pan and bake for about 60-70 minutes.
simply mix lime juice with confectioners sugar until it becomes a smooth glaze and desired consistency is achieved. pour over the cooling bread.
