I'll have to try this gluten free. I do miss banana bread, sigh.

LOL! That sounds about right for those darling girls.

Only 1 piece of banana bread each day? I know. Let's put it on top of a quart of ice cream and crumble a chocolate bar on top. That will work.

Maybe they're going to use it for ice cream topping! emoticon

Wednesday recipe: Rob's banana bread

I have 2 young ladies (ages 11 and 12) who visit me on Wednesdays. We always take a walk, have lunch, and do an art project. I do my best to get them to eat more healthy when they visit me and include something they can help prepare. When feeding children for a special visit, you must include a treat for the day. This week's treat and kid friendly recipe was Rob's banana bread.

Something went wrong in the cooking because the bread did not rise. Something went right in the tasting because they asked to take the left overs home.

400F oven temp and 45 minutes, but I only baked mine for 30 minutes. I like mine a little soft.

What oven temp and how long did you bake the banana bread?

No, I have not used it with any other fruit. I assume that it would work with any sweet soft fruit. Be sure you use over ripe bananas that have started to go black.

Rob. how did you know that Banana Bread was my most favorite food in the universe? You have inspired me to go shopping for bananas and use your recipe this week.

Have you tried this same recipe with any other fruit that can be mushed up, like figs? Figs are in season now where I live.

When quick breads get a little stale or are soggy in the middle, just toast some slices in your oven under the broiler.

You are worth it!

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup 10 grain flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
5 tbsp margarine
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup chopped pecans

I had some over ripe bananas so it was bread time. The original recipe I started with called for 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour but I wanted more whole grain so I added the Bob's Red Mill 10 grain I had on hand. They tell you not to replace more than a 1/2 cup so that's what I did. Oh course you can use any nuts you like. It turned out very good and it is all gone!
