All the ingredients for this recipe can be combined in a food processor which makes it a perfect entry to Mansi’s BBD# 18: Quick Bread event. Bread Baking Day (BBD) is the brainchild of Zorra @ Kochtopf.
This recipe is from Vegetarian Bible by Sarah Brown. The recipe used pecans and dried apricots, I subbed them with walnuts & raisins resp.
Recipe adapted from Vegetarian BibleIngredients:
Self Rising Flour – 2 cups (I used 2 cups AP flour + 3 tsp Baking powder + 1 tsp salt)Butter – ½cup, melted
Eggs – 3Light brown sugar – ½ cup
Bananas – 3 ripe, choppedWalnuts – 1 cup
Raisins – ½ cup
- Reserve ½ cup walnuts for garnish.
- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease an 8” circular baking pan or 9”x 5” loaf pan.
- Add bananas, flour, eggs, butter, sugar, nuts & raisins to the food processor; pulse till well combined. (I had some technical problems with my processor when I tried to turn it on after dumping all the ingredients in it; so I had to dump everything back into a bowl and use a hand mixer to mix. It was a little annoying cleaning up the mess, but the bread turned out just fine).
- Pour into the prepared pan; arrange the reserved walnuts on the top. Bake for 45-50 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
- Cool in pan.
This bread tastes great toasted with some butter. I brought it to my colleague’s birthday breakfast and everybody loved it.
