This is SO good. And healthy! I love baking with whole-wheat flour. It makes me feel better about what I’m eating. Doesn’t this look pretty? And tasty? This is what I’ve had for breakfast the past couple mornings. It’s perfect. I hope you like it as much as I do!
1/2 c. butter
1 c. sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 c. mashed ripe bananas (about 3)
1 c. all-purpose flour, unsifted
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. soda
1 c. whole wheat flour, unsifted
1/3 c. hot water
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. allspice
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
Melt butter and blend in sugar. Mix in beaten eggs and mashed banana, blending until smooth. In a bowl, stir together all-purpose flour, salt, soda and whole wheat flour until thoroughly blended. Add dry ingredients alternately with hot water. Stir in chopped nuts and spices. Spoon batter into a greased 9×5 inch loaf pan.
Bake in a 325 degree oven for about 1 hour and 5 to 10 minutes, until bread begins to pull away from sides of pan and a wooden skewer inserted in center comes out clean (or a little gooey – you don’t want it to be dry!). Let cool in pan for 10 minutes; then turn out onto a rack to cool completely.
