#378 - Deceptively Delicous Banana Bread

Here's another recipe I love from the book Deceptively Delicious. We try to make it at least once a week with all our ripe bananas. I of course tweaked it just a little, so here's my recipe:

Ingredients
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup olive oil or canola oil (I usually use olive oil)
2 eggs (the original recipe just calls for 2 egg whites)
2 cups well mashed banana (the original recipe calls for 1/2 c cauliflower puree, but I just put more banana)
1 tsp vanilla extract

Directions
Preheat oven to 350.
Spray a 9x5 loaf pan with nonstick spray.
In lg bowl, mix the sugar and oil with a wooden spoon until well combined. Mix in eggs,then banana puree (it's about 4-5 bananas), and vanilla. And flours, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Mix until just combined.
Pour batter into pan, bake until a toothpick comes out clean, about 55-60 minutes. Let cool on a rack for 5 minutes then turn out onto rack to cool before serving.

It's our new banana bread recipe! And Baby O even helps me mix it all together...we're making progress in the kitchen.

I just love banana bread but it always seems like the middle is doughy and the outside is too well done. I need a remedy for this.
