Banana Raisin Bread

The texture of this bread is fantastic! It stands up well to toasting and makes some wonderful French toast. I definitely recommend doubling this recipe. It is easily frozen too.

Banana Raisin Bread
  • 1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup (2 medium) mashed ripe bananas
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup raisins
1. Cream the butter and sugar together for 5 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla, mix well. Add bananas and milk, mix well.

2. In a separate bowl, combine the flours, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Slowly stir the flour mixture into the banana mixture. Stir in the raisins.

3. Bake in a greased loaf pan at 350 degrees for 55 to 60 minutes.

You always amaze me with all of your recipes! I love banana bread but haven't tried it yet with raisins. I'm sure it will be a nice change.

Hi! I have just recently discovered your blog, and I am really enjoying it.
I have discovered I have a little collection of banana bread recipes, so this one will be added to it. I don't think I've seen raisins in banana bread before, but it seems like a natural.
