For the bread:
¼ cup butter
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup honey (we substituted creamed honey)
1 ½ cup mashed, very ripe bananas
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
½ cup crushed candied pecans
For the top:
¼ cup creamed honey (or as much as desired)
¼ cup crushed candied pecans (or as much as desired)
Cream the butter with a wooden spoon. Add the sugar and honey and beat until creamy and light. Add the eggs, one at a time, then thoroughly mix in the bananas. Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt and blend thoroughly into the mixture. Finally, fold in the pecans.
Butter a 12 x 4 ½ x 2 ½” loaf pan and pour in the batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour, or until knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
Once cooled, top loaf with creamed honey and candied pecans.
