Banana Cranberry Bread

Here is the recipe for Sean’s and a few workmates favorite banana bread recipe of mine. It is an adaptation of the recipe found in The Bread Bible by Rose Levy Beranbaum.

Cream together: 1/2c butter & 1c sugar

Add and mix well: 2 large eggs, 1 large very ripe banana mashed, 1 1/2 tbsp thick yogurt and 1tsp vanilla extract

Add and mix well: 2c flour, 1 tsp b. soda & 1 tsp salt

Add and mix until incorporated: 2c frozen cranberries and 1 c chopped pecans or walnuts.

Put into loaf pan and bake in preheated oven at 350F for 55-65 minutes. Tent with tinfoil after 20 to 30 minutes to prevent over browning.

Variations and Notes: You can add two mashed bananas to the recipe, but add an extra 30-60 minutes for baking. You can also throw in a handful or two of frozen blueberries. It is also advisable to cut the large cranberries in half prior to adding to the batter.

The pictures show the latest banana bread creation that has been all eaten up before I had a chance to blog about it. It had double the banana and blueberries added and used pecans.

    It is still snowing here………it comes, it goes, but so far it is not staying! I did cover up my garlic though, just to be safe!
