Banana Bread with Almond Orange Glaze

It's been far too long since I've made banana bread.  While picking out meals for my "getting ready for baby" freezer meals, I found this bread recipe.  I figured it would probably be good to have some breakfast items along with all the dinners I made, so I made it.  The recipe was easy to follow and I loved the glaze that went on top. The recipe makes 2 loafs.  I ate one this week and froze one for when baby is here.  Enjoy!

Recipe from 36th Avenue 

4 large bananas { mashed }
1 Cup Butter (room temperature)
2 Eggs
2 Cups of Sugar
4 Cups of Flour
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/2 Cup Water
2 tsp. baking soda


1. Peel and mash those ripe bananas.

2. Cream the butter, sugar and eggs.
3. Add flour and salt to the creamed mixture.
  4. Dissolve baking soda in warm water and add to mixture.

5. Blend in the mashed bananas.
*I added walnuts to one loaf at this point and chocolate chips to another. 
Bake in a well greased pan at 325º for 1 hour.

About five minutes before the bread is done add in a small sauce pan
1 and 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup Orange Juice
and 1/2 tsp. of almond extract.
