The Banana Bread of Kings
OK. Here it is. The one you've all been waiting for. :)
I should mention that I asked a friend, a banana-bread connoisseur of
sorts, to try it. She agreed that it was very good. But she said that it
was a little heavier than normal b.b. So there you have it. And here it is.
1 cup ready-to-eat bran cereal (I used Total - .5 g fat in 1 cup)
1 cup mashed ripe banana (2 ro 3)
3 tablespoons applesauce (replacing shortening)
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup + 2 tbs boiling water
1 1/2 cups sifted flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Measure bran, banana, applesauce and sugar in a large bowl. Add the water
In another bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, and salt (or don't sift
it -- stirring it well with a fork works also). Add this to the banana
mixture, stirring only until combined.
Pour into bread pan and stick in the oven.
Bake at 350 for about 45 min.
