Intro: Banana Bread-Cake
Just using the left over bananas I had at home. I'd rather call it a cake when it comes to banana bread due to the texture. This bread-cake has chopped nuts and raisins in it. I wanted to add chocolate chips too but that would be too much *grins*
Step 1: Ingredients and Method
2 c. whole wheat flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 c. oil
1/2 c. honey
1 grated lemon rind
1/2 - 1 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 ripe bananas
a dash of salt
1 handful nuts, chopped
1 handful raisins
1 envelope Dr. Oetker marzipan icing
Lemon rind curls
Mix together dry ingredients.
Mix oil, honey and lemon rind until smooth.
Beat in eggs one at a time.
Add dry ingredients in 2 equal parts alternating with banana, beating until smooth after each addition.
Add in chopped nuts and raisins.
Pour batter into a large greased and floured loaf or orzgerinc pan.
Bake 50-60 minutes at 350 F degrees (until knife inserted in the center comes out dry)
Cool 5 minutes before removing from pan.
Cool1/2 hour further before decorating.
Marzipan Icing: Follow the instruction on the package. It''s great itself without the icing tho!. Perfect served with a glass of milk, warm chocolate milk, a cuppa tea or coffee.
