banana-bread-8 recipe

 Until now, I've been unconvinced about ff baking...I've found it to be
 chewy, dense, and generally unpleasant-tasting.  This is what changed
 my mind...  banana bread.  I combined ideas from the list (baby food
 prunes) with Moosewood's recipe (calls for over a cup of butter), and
 came up with great results.
 This recipe could esily be adapted to pumpkin bread, zucchini bread,
 etc...maybe even that persimmon bread I've heard about recently!
 Hope you like it...
 Dry ingredients:
  2 c flour
  1/2 t salt
  1/4 t baking soda
  1/2 T baking powder
  1 t cinnamon
  dash of allspice
 Wet ingredients:
  4 ripe bananas, mashed
  2 jars of baby food prunes
  1/2 c. brown sugar, packed (you could use less)
  juice of one lemon
  zest of 1/2 a lemon (you could use more)
  2 egg substitutes, beaten (I used egg-beaters)
  1 1/2 t vanilla
 Optional additions:
  dried cherries
 Preheat oven to 350.  In a large bowl, mix dry ingredients.  Combine wet
 ingredients thoroughly, add to dry ingredients.  Mix until evenly moistened
 (do not overmix).  Spread batter into a loaf pan that has been prepared with
 oil spray.  Bake 45-50 minutes till a knife inserted comes clean.  Let cool
 in pan 10 minutes, then cool completely on a rack.
