I don't have any other recipes, unfortunate, but I can help you with a more
"banana-ful" tasting bread...
It takes a while to cook, but I've never had problems with the "rawness" you
This recipe is also from my web pages, so if you forget it, lose it,
whatever, you can find it there. On my page, it has an ingredient that no
one here would like, so I left it out here. My friend for whom I've made
this bread says it's really great sliced and toasted.
3 ripe bananas, well mashed (be sure they are super ripe)
4 egg whites (also works with egg replacer)
2 cups of flour
3/4 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon baking soda
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. "Grease" a loaf pan (2 if small). Mix the
bananas and "eggs"
together in a large bowl. Stir in the flour, sugar, salt, and baking soda.
Put the batter in the pan(s) and bake aprox 1 hour, or until
toothpick/tester comes out clean. Remove from the pan to a rack. Serve still
warm or cooked, as you like it.
