    origamifreak's Note:

    My brother makes a killer banana bread, where the batter is basically a way to cement together all kinds of nutty, fruity goodness. There is no oil at all in this recipe. The result is almost fruitcakeish, except that it's actually edible! :-) Like fruitcake, the loaves are pretty stable and improve with age. You can add pretty much any kind/combination of dried fruit and nuts - as long as it adds up to the same total weight of the ingredients listed below.

      Add the dried fruit nuts etc. - this is where all that extra horsepower from a good mixer comes in handy!
    7. 7
      Spoon out the mix into the three loaf pans - a scale is a handy way to get them approximately equal.

      I don't usually like fruit cake but this sounded so yummy I just had to give it a try. I wasn't disappointed either this is great. I halved the recipe & got one large loaf and 2 small loaves out of it. I used sultanas, pineapple & apricot for the fruit & almonds for the nuts as that's what I had on hand. The banana gives the cake a nice flavour & because of all the good things in it I needn't feel too guilty about eating it. This one I will make again. Thanks for posting!
