Blueberry- Banana Loaf and Raisin-Banana loaf- Take 2


These 2 loaves were made for a gathering of mothers and toddlers and they were all gone in an hour. The mothers preferred the blueberry- banana ones while the toddlers preferred the raisin-banana ones. Hmmmm…. I’d have though otherwise.

Both loaves have minimal fat and in my opinion I could have reduced sugar to 1/4 cup per loaf as I found this too sweet, since the bananas are naturally sweet. But that’s me, try it and adjust to your taste.

Self raising flour 1 1/2 cups
Baking soda 1/2 tsp
(Note- if you are using plain flour,just add 1-1 1/2tsp of baking pwdr to the flour)

Raw sugar 1/2 cup
Bananas 2 medium sized, very ripe
Applesauce 1/2 cup
Butter 2 tbsps butter melted
Oil 2 tbsp (canola)

Blueberries, a handful ( bruised with fork to release their juices)

Mix wet ingredients in a food processor
Add wet mixture to flour and fold in.
Last stir in blueberry and immediately pour into a loaf pan.
Bake 45 mins at 160-180 deg C


These pics below is the raisin-banana loaf. The only difference between the 2 is that i did not put the 2 tbsp oil in the banana-raisin loaf. The recipe is exactly the same otherwise.
That 2 tbsp made a lot of difference as the blueberry-banana loaf was lot more moist & cake like while the raisin-banana loaf was more springy & bread-like.
Both loaves get my tick of approval, just that one is good for brekky and the other for a tea-time snack.
