  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (or 325 if convection).

    With a wooden spoon, mix olive oil (or butter) into the mashed bananas in a large mixing bowl.

  2. Mix in the sugar, egg, vanilla and bourbon, then the spices. Sprinkle the baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix in.
  3. Add the flour last, mix. Don't over mix, it should be lumpy.
  4. Pour mixture into a buttered 4×8 inch loaf pan. Bake for 50 minutes to one hour, or until a tester comes out clean.

    Cool on a rack. Remove from pan and slice to serve.

    Toasting this bread and adding a drizzle of Cloister Honey Bourbon Infused Honey is out of this world!
