Favorite Bake-off Banana Wheat Quick Bread

Favorite Bake-off Banana Wheat Quick Bread created by Chris from Kansas

This recipe is from the 1973 Pillsbury Bake-off contest and is my favorite version of banana bread. I usually make a powdered sugar glaze for the top, which makes it extra special.

    Really delicious, not overly sweet, and no one would guess that it's pretty low-fat/healthy to boot! I doubled the recipe but instead of adding 3 total cups of bananas, I did 2 1/2c bananas + 1/2c mango (and thus omitted the OJ & lemon juice). Also added about 1/2t cinnamon & 1/8t ginger. After mixing, the batter seemed a bit moist to me so I added about 1/3c quick oats in addition to the 2 types of flour. My husband raved about these, especially the yummy raisins, and begged me not to give any away!
