This recipe comes to us from Karen Sirois.

Heat oven to 350F and grease a 9x5x3 inch loaf pan.

Mix thoroughly:

  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons soft shortening
  • 1 egg

Stir in:

  • ¾ cup milk
  • 1 cup mashed overripe bananas

Stir in: (heres where it gets personal)

  • 2¼ to 2½ cups brown rice flour (I started with 2 and ¼,
    added a little more till the consistency looked right to me)
  • 2 tablespoons of xanthan gum
  • 3 and ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt

When you have the consistency looking right to you, add ¾ to 1 cup chopped nuts. Bake about 60 minutes (I started checking mine at 50 minutes...when a toothpick stuck into the center comes out clean its done). As with all rice flour baked goods, it slices a lot cleaner when its cooled. welcomes your comments below (registration is NOT required).
