Banana bread with blood orange marmalade glaze8

Posted on January 28, 2012 by ChristieSweet Treats, Taste Tests, Vegetarian

I had a few pesky overripe bananas in my fruit bowl last weekend, and when that happens there is only one thing to do.

Make banana bread.

I’d also just received a jar of Beerenberg Blood Orange Marmalade. I’m not a marmalade fan at all, but this one is much sweeter than other ones I’ve tasted, so I decided to tweak my usual dense and moist banana bread recipe and top it with a sweet glaze.

I simply warmed three tablespoons of the marmalade in a saucepan and then poured it over the cooked cake and brushed it in with a silicone brush.

The marmalade added a lovely tang and a welcome sweet/sticky element when served in thin slices with a dollop of whipped cream. Just heavenly.
