A Banana Bread Recipe For Parties Or A Homemade Gift! 

This Rum Glazed Banana Bread is the perfect party dessert! Not only is it really easy to make, but you can make it ahead of time so you aren’t rushing around at the last minute. This banana bread is so moist and delicious, and has a little kick from banana rum.

We added banana rum to this banana bread recipe not only inside the bread but in the glaze that gets poured on top. We’re not messing around here when it comes to our rum.

This banana bread is also a really nice, homemade gift to give around the holidays or when a friend is feeling down. Nothing like a boozy, delicious dessert to cheer you up!

How To Make Rum Glazed Banana Bread

The banana bread recipe is pretty basic. Mashed bananas, sugar, butter, cinnamon, all the good stuff that goes into banana bread.

Then a shot of the banana cream rum.

Although I’d love too, don’t put more than the one shot in here, the bread will come out a little to underdone. Trust me, I tried it. This was banana bread recipe number two.

After mixing the ingredients for the bread and getting it into the oven, you can make the rum glaze for the top of the bread.

We like to pour this boozy glaze over the bread when it’s still a little bit warm so it gets all melty and tasty…

If you want a thicker glaze you can add more sugar, or pour on a layer, let it set a few minutes and then pour another layer over the top. But this way was perfect for me, boozy banana bread with a boozy glaze…doesn’t get much better than that.


The glaze soaks into the bread as you can see, so it’s got a thin layer on top but then right under the crust there you can see where the glaze soaked in. It’s really the perfect banana bread if you ask me.
