Caramel Rum Banana Streusel Muffins

When life hands you beat up looking bananas, make some spectacular Caramel Rum Banana Streusel Muffins! This recipe is actually originally for banana *bread*, but I have now made this same recipe also as coffee cake and muffins. All have been great, but I do have to say that the original *bread* version is still my favorite. Happy Monday!

Caramel Pecan Banana Bundt Cake

I’ve had company visiting for the weekend (which actually seems to often be the case!) so to make the “hey, sure, you can sleep in the spare bed” more like a bed and breakfast experience, I made some banana-bread like thing to snack on in the morning.

Equally as epic… and it doesn’t hurt that you can say that you had rum for breakfast on a Friday! 🙂
