Tropical Banana Bread-Muffins

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
12 teaspoon salt
12 cup butter, softened (1 stick)
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
2 extra-large eggs
1 12 teaspoons vanilla extract
14 cup dark rum
1 cup mashed banana (4 to 5 medium banana)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
14 teaspoon ground nutmeg
14 teaspoon ground cloves
3 tablespoons plain yogurt or 3 tablespoons sour cream
12 cup macadamia nuts (pecans or walnuts can be used)
12 cup flaked coconut
12 cup raisins (optional)


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray giant muffin tin with non-stick spary. Whisk together the flour, salt and baking soda. Mash the bananas with the sour cream/yogurt. In a large bowl beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Add the vanilla extract, rum and spices and beat until blended. Alternately add the dry ingredients and the banana mixture to the batter, beating until fluffy. Fold the remaining ingredients into the batter. Spoon the batter into the pan; bake for 25 -30 minutes; until the bread pulls away slightly from the sides of the pan and a toothpick inserted comes away clean.
