I love this recipe because I never have anything besides skim milk (or more recently rice/almond milk) on hand. Since you suggested other fruits, I tried lemon preserves with the bananas and raisins, and it gave it much more grown-up flavor. I've tried it with just bananas and raisins, though, and it's very homey-heartwarming. I also sub in canola oil for butter because we don't buy butter/margarine/veg oil. Thank you!
