banana bread

Had to help D's brother + sister-in-law move on Saturday. I wasn't sure what our movements would be re: food, and I had a very overripe banana in the fridge, so on Friday night, after getting back from the cinema, I attempted some banana bread. It ended up more like cake than bread, but made a great on the go snack the next day, in between voting, heaving lifting, and throwing things into boxes.

Banana and Sultana Bread

1 ½ cups SR flour
½ cup wholemeal flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
½ cup brown sugar
1 superripe banana, mashed
1 tsp lemon juice
¼ cup sultanas
2 tablespoons applesauce
½ cup soy milk

Sift together the flours with the cinnamon. In a separate bowl combine the banana, sugar lemon juice, apple sauce and milk, and then mix into the flour. Add the sultanas, and keep mixing until well combined. If it seems a bit dry after five minutes, add a tiny bit more milk.

Line the base of a bread tin, and grease the sides. Pour smoothly into the tin, and bake at 180C for 45 minutes.

Banana in baked goods always = win! And I like the idea of adding sultanas, too!

Yum yum, banana bread. What movie did you see?

Mandee, the sultanas make an excellent addition because of the sweetness!

Theresa, we saw Star Trek.

This looks great! I tried to make some banana bread the other day and it came out like a brick. I'll be trying this one very soon.

Helen, I'm pretty average at banana breads but this one turned out great! :o)
