You're right. Now that you point it out, this is a mistake. I use a 1/2 cup
measuring cup and fill the bottom half of it with brown sugar and then top
up the other half with Equal. In fact you could probably leave out the
sugar substitute all together because the fruit make it sweet enough.

Equal is aspartame (sp?) I think, plus a filler, and is called Equal
because it measures the same as sugar. It is unlike saccharine for which
you use only a very tiny amount. Anyway, the corrected recipe is:

Banana and Blueberry Bread (corrected)

4 ripe bananas
1/4 cup cup brown sugar
1/4 cup Equal (sugar substitute)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup raisins (optional)
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups self raising, wholemeal flour
1 can (425g) of blueberries, drained

Mash bananas, sugars and vanilla together.   Add remaining ingredients
(blueberries last). Pour into sprayed loaf tin and bake for at least one
hour at 160 degrees C or 320 degrees F. Or use muffin tins and bake for
less time. Remove from pan and let cool before cutting.

Thanks for catching this Sheri. That's what I get for trying to work from
