Gluten Free Banana Nut Bread
6 tablespoons butter, softened
1/2 package (4 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
3/4 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2 medium)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups GF all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cups chopped pecans, divided
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons orange juice
1/2 teaspoon grated orange zest
1. Preheat oven to 350°. Cream butter, cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg, beating well. Beat in bananas and vanilla. In another bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Fold in 1/2 cup pecans.
2. Transfer to greased loaf pan. Sprinkle with remaining pecans. Bake, until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 1 to 1-1/4 hours. Cool 10 minutes before removing to wire racks.
3. While loaf is still slightly warm, whisk glaze ingredients. Drizzle over loaf, using a baking pan or parchment paper under racks to catch excess. Cool completely.
