Mmmm...a nice change from regular banana bread. Use all white flour if you like. I've made three mini loaves with success, as well as one large one.
- In a blender, combine the milk, sugar, peanut butter, vanilla, and bananas and blend til smooth.
- In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
- Add the banana mixture and mix well.
- Pour into a 9x5 inch loaf pan that has been sprayed with nonstick spray.
- Bake at 350 degrees 45 minutes or til toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
- Cool in pan before slicing.
I have made this recipe with some changes. I added 3large eggs, 1/2 tsp extra of baking powder, and when after ifinished mixing I pour into my prepare 9x5 loaf pan all except maybe 1 1/2 cups of the batter. In this reserve batter, I added 3/4 cup nutella. I blended well and topped the batter in pan. Then I marbleized with icing spatula. Ibaked it foe about 55 minutes. Then. I realized that I could not expect for nutella to becom totally cook like rest of the bread. I think that next time I will bake only 45 minutes because the outside became bit scorched. It was very moist and very high. I will remove the crust cut it into thin slices ( about 3/8" thick). I will cut each slices in 4 even squares. I will mix lemon or orange zest along with some half n half into lowfat cream cheese and use this as a spread to put 2 squares together to make a small pastry. I might also make pouring royal icing (like petit fours) and ice them. If I do this I will let you know it came out. Bon Appetit!
Very tasty alternative to traditional banana bread. A bit too sweet even using 7/8 cup. Easy to do, would recommend this as a good after school snack.
This tastes delicious and has a smooth texture. I used natural peanut butter and substituted all whole wheat pastry flour instead of using any white flour, and cut the sugar back to 7/8 cup. I made it in a large (14 cup) food processor. I don't think it would fit in a smaller one. Add wet ingredients first, mix, then add dry ingredients and pulse just until blended. It did take longer to bake. I gave it an hour and it was still a little underdone. Next time I will use two pans. Peanut butter is the dominant flavor but there is a hint of banana too. Because it was underdone, I sliced some and "baked" the slices at 350 degrees for 15 minutes in my toaster oven. It's really good toasted. I will make this again, it's yummy. Thank you!
