Boozy Banana Bread

½ stick unsalted butter (4 tablespoons), room temp
3 over-ripe bananas
2/3 cup sugar
2 eggs, room temp
1 6-oz. container vanilla yoghurt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3-4 tablespoons dark rum
2 tablespoons malted milk powder (optional but very nice)

2 cups plus 2 tablespoons white wheat flour (you could probably substitute all-purpose, but I think this lends textural interest)
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
¾ teaspoon salt

2/3 cup chopped walnuts, lightly toasted

Preheat oven to 350.  In a large bowl, mash bananas with butter.  Add sugar, yoghurt, eggs, vanilla, rum, and malted milk powder and mix until well-blended.

In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  Add walnuts and stir to blend.

Mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients until just blended, and pour into a greased loaf pan.  Bake for 50-60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
