Banana and Raspberry Bread

Banana and Raspberry bread - based on a Weight Watchers Recipe

This is REALLY nice toasted in a toasted sandwich maker, have to get the outside crisp and then slather it with butter! I also halve the oil and put in one whole egg as well as an egg white, try it as per the recipe but feel free to change it about. 

2 egg whites
2 medium ripe bananas mashed
¾ cup soft brown sugar
¼ cup vegetable oil (I use olive and think it is too heavy which is why I do what I do with the egg)
1 ½ cups plain flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 ¼ tsp baking powder
½ tsp bicarb of soda
1 ¾ cups frozen raspberries
2x little tubs of fruit like peaches or 2 fruits – I use Goldburn Valley – drained

Preheat oven 160 oC
Grease loaf tin (22cm x 12cm) & line w paper hanging it over the long sides

  1. Combine egg white, banana, sugar & oil (or egg) in a large bowl. 
  2. Sift flour, cinnamon, baking powder & bicarb in to wet mix.   
  3. Mix to combine then add raspberries & other fruit. (be gentle so the raspberries don't get squashed)

Spoon mix into loaf tin & bake for 1hour 15mins or until skewer comes out clean. 

Stand loaf in tin for 5 mins then cool on wire rack.

 This doesn’t cut well when it is really warm.
