Tide you over with some Banana Bread?

I think I drained my creativity yesterday by trying to hand craft a wooden bowl.... I know my arm muscles sure are hurting this morning and I am just soooo sleepy! Maybe its just writers block??? O well, I'm going to work on a post about the NAIA Pow Wow that I attended this weekend but until then... I hope some Banana Bread will tide you over.

Banana-Raisin Whole Wheat Bread

2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
       2 cups mashed bananas
1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
      1 cup Raisins (optional)
   2/3 cup vanilla yogurt
      2 eggs
  1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt

1. Move oven rack to lowest position. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bottoms of two loaf pans.
2. Mix ingredients together... pour into pan. Bake 1hr (8x4 pan) or 1hr and 15min (9inch pan)


  1. Oh you said the magic word. BANANA! Banana bread, banana pudding, banana cream pie, or just plain bananas. Maybe I'm part monkey, but I love the things.

  2. Mmmmmm! Love that stuff! Have you ever tried it with paw-paws? I bet it would be just as good. Of course, my sister is allergic to paw-paws, so you might want to try it carefully, if you ever try it.

  3. YUMM!! I'm keeping this one for my next baking Monday...or maybe this Wednesday!

  4. That looks SO GOOD. My mouth watered at the image. Nice.
