Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup of golden raisins dried blueberries or cranberries
  • 1 cup plus 2 Tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 oats
  • 1 tbsp raw sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup very ripe bananas mashed
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. butter and flour a 9" loaf pan
  2. preheat the oven to 325 degrees
  3. place the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder in a small bowl and combine well with either your hands or a wooden spoon
  4. In a large bowl or your mixer place the sugar and melted butter and mix well, add the eggs one at a time, then add the mashed banana’s
  5. with your wooden spoon mix in the raisins, oats, nuts and vanilla extract. Add the flour mixture a third at a time mixing well each time.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake in the middle of the oven for 1 hour
  7. Sprinkle the top of the loaf with the raw sugar.  This is optional and can be left out. The raw sugar adds a nice touch to the cake but will not detract from the recipe if  you don't have  this on hand.

  8. When the bread is ready a toothpick or knife inserted into the center should come out clean there may be a little clinging to it, just not gooey batter
  9. Place the pan on a rack to cool for 15 minutes and then pop it out of the pan and its ready to enjoy.
Recipe Notes

regular raisins may be used instead of golden raisins, i have used currents instead of raisins also.
If your a chocolate fan, try adding some chocolate chips if you like, chocolate seems a natural pairing with banana’s, just don’t get carried away 1/2 cup should be plenty.
