Banana Raisin Bread

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

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?
