Banana Raisin Bread

Today’s theme seems to be bananas. I have already posted a drink with green fig (banana) and one on green fig pie, now I have another. This time it is a loaf made with mashed ripe banana. This quick bread is perfect for dinner; also, it makes a good dessert. This recipe can make two small loaves (as seen here) or one large loaf.

    Hi, my son is allergic to dairy and I would really like to start baking for him since alot of the stuff sold in stores contain milk. I noticed some of your recipes (including this one)contain evaporated milk. Could you suggest any alternatives? Do you think soy or almond milk will negatively affect the flavour?

    Check out my GFCF recipes that is what you’re looking for. Those recipes do not contain any dairy or wheat flour.
