Banana Bread


From EatingWell:  January/February 1993

Banana bread is the perfect vehicle for using bananas once they are past their prime.

1 loaf, for 12 servings | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 1 1/2 hours



  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly oil a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan.
  2. Dissolve brown sugar in coffee in a bowl. Stir in bananas. Whisk together egg, egg white, oil and vanilla in a large bowl. Add the banana mixture. Whisk together flours, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, salt and baking soda in a separate bowl. Add to the banana mixture and stir just until combined.
  3. Pour into the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 40 to 50 minutes. Let cool in the pan on a rack for 10 minutes. Invert the loaf onto a rack and let cool completely.
