I've taken several recipes that I have found successful and reworked
them. You can even bake this in a bread machine on the cake cycle. And
who doesn't have a few frozen bananas in the freezer? My 15 yr. old son
refuses to eat this quick bread because it has bananas in it -- and the
only reason he doesn't like bananas is because of the "sound" they make
when being chewed!! Go figure. Hey, that just means more for the rest
of us, right?
Best Banana Bread
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups mashed very ripe bananas (about 6 medium to large)
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour (part whole wheat pastry) OR 1 1/2 cups flour + 1/2 bran
cereal or uncooked oats
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
shake of cinnamon
Combine ingredients and bake in spray coated loaf pan for 1 hour at 350
degrees. Two small loaf pans bake for about 40 min.
ABM: place all ingredients in pan (wet ingredients first), insert pan
into unit and select CAKE cycle. Check to make sure all
ingredients are moistened and no flour remains in the corners. Check
for doneness after about an hour with an uncooked
piece of spaghetti.
Let me know how it turns out.
