Banana Bread with Goat Cheese Icing

for the cake:

1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 ripe bananas
1 tablespoon rum
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Mix together the butter and sugar until very creamy and smooth (I used a food processor). Add the eggs, bananas, and rum and mix until smooth. Mix together the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Fold into the butter batter until just mixed in. Using a #12 disher, scoop the batter into 12 parchment-lined muffin cups. Bake at 350 until set, about 15 minutes. Let cool and then ice.

For the icing:

2 ounces goat cheese, softened
2 ounces butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
Mix together the cheese, butter, and sugar until creamy (I used a food processor). Use a 4-inch icing spatula to spread on top of the muffins.
