Five very ripe bananas and a hint of amaretto liqueur make a delicious 'boozy' banana bread!
I only had four large ripe bananas which worked well. I added more almond extract and a glug of amaretto. I think a few more would do better as I could not detect either. I added half a bag of Guittard semi sweet chocolate chips because... chocolate. Got raves from all tasters. Definite do over with some minor tweaks. - 03 Nov 2018 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
8-21-2017 ~Five bananas is a lot for one banana bread, so I thought I'd be just fine with the four I had on hand. Turns out the four were more than plenty. I did have a couple of issues with this recipe. This is called “Boozy Banana Bread,” yet I had no doubt that a skimpy three drops of Amaretto called for would have absolutely no boozy flavor impact. Even the one tablespoon of rum I used (I had no Amaretto on hand at our place here in Naples) could not be detected at all. I believe that nothing less than a quarter cup would. Similarly, I questioned the value of three drops of almond extract, which I eliminated, adding a tsp. of vanilla instead. Of more concern to me was the one teaspoon of salt called for, a good 1/2 tsp. more than necessary. I cut that back to 1/2 tsp. which worked out just fine, as I knew it would. In this instance, muffins were a better choice for me so I baked these at 350 degrees, for about 24 minutes. I filled the 12 muffin cups nearly to the brim and they turned out beautiful and plump. While these ended up being just delicious in every way, I still must dock this recipe a star for not living up to its name and for the excess amount of salt. - 22 Aug 2017 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
