Banana Gingerbread

Banana Gingerbread created by Baby Kato

Two of my favorite things: gingerbread and bananas. How can you go wrong? The bananas keep the bread so moist. This is the perfect fall treat.

    Missing ginger. Smells absolutely lovely. But, it was too "spice"y for my family and I.

    It came out way too heavy for me and I definitely think it needs a lot more leavening than the self-rising flour provides. The taste is okay, but the texture is just so gooey/sticky that it's difficult to enjoy. I think I can make changes to the recipe to fix it, but as-is, it just doesn't make nearly as good of a quick bread as I generally make on my own.

    Where is the ginger? I added 1 1/2 teaspoons of powdered ginger, substituted 1/3 cup oil for the butter, and more molasses for the honey. I also used one cup each of unbleached and whole wheat flour, adding 2 teaspoons baking powder & about 1/2 teaspoon salt (had no self-rising flour) - and a good handful of raisins at the end - and now I have a loaf of delicious bread that is moist, spicy, not too sweet and not overwhelmingly banana-y - this is definitely my new banana bread recipe. Thank you!
