Does anybody have a good banana bread recipe that you're willing to share?

This recipe is Gluten and Dairy Free

Dry Ingredients:

100g of Rice flour

50g of Cornflour/starch

40g of Tapioca flour/starch

35g of ground almonds

2 tsp of baking powder

1.5 tsp of xanthan gum

1 tsp of ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp of ground mixed spice

1/2 tsp of salt

80g of chopped walnuts

60g of sultanas

Wet Ingredients:

1 tsp of vanilla essence

4 Tbls of vegetable oil

100g of demerara sugar

2 large eggs

3 medium ripe bananas (puree'd in a blender)

Method:

Pre-heat oven to 350F GasMark 4

Grease a 2 pound loaf tin

Beat sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla until frothy

In a medium bowl mix all the dry ingredients (except the nuts and sultanas)

Add half the dry flour mix and half the puree'd bananas to the wet mix and stir well, add the balance of flour and banana and stir till fully combined.

Sprinkle the nuts and sultanas over the top and stir until combined in the mixture.

Using a spatula dipped in water loosen mix from sides of the bowl.

Transfer to greased tin and smooth out using a wet spatula.

Again with the wet spatula cut a line along the length of the tin in the centre of the mix.

Place in the pre-heated oven and bake for about 90 mins check centre with a kebab skewer/Coctail stick. (it should come out clean)

Remove from tin and allow to cool on a rack.

I generally slice it completely and put 2 slices together in cling film/saranwrap and put these packs in a container or large Ziploc bag and freeze, removing a pack of 2 slices when needed.

Elizabeth Barbone Easy Gluten Free Baking has a banana nut bread recipe called Blue Ribbon Banana Bread in her book. You can't even tell it's gluten free. I cook mine in a heavy iron bread pan from Williams Sonoma the ones that have an imprint on the bottom and it make the top crunchy. It's so good. Not sure if we are allowed to post recipes from books on here. Anyone know?

Origin - I believe someone else posted this on the forum??

BANANA BREAD

1/3 cup canola oil (I used grapeseed oil),

2/3 cup brown sugar,

2 large eggs,

1 tsp vanilla extract,

1 and 3/4 cup all purpose gluten-free baking flour, (I use a mix of 1/3 sorghum, 1/3 rice, 1/3 tapioca)

2 tsp. baking powder,

1 and 1/4 tsp. cinnamon,

1 tsp. xanthan gum,

1/2 tsp. salt,

1 and 1/2 cup mashed bananas (I just used three bananas and it worked out okay),

1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts or pecans (did not use),

1/2 cup raisins (did not use and used a liberal amount of dried cranberries instead or can be omitted)

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Grease a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan.

Cream together oil, sugar, eggs, and vanilla in a large bowl with an electric mixer.

Add flour, xanthan gum, salt, baking powder and cinnamon to egg mixture.

Then add mashed bananas and beat until smooth.

Add the nuts and raisins (or dried cranberries) and stir in.

Batter will be somewhat soft.

Transfer batter to pan and bake loaf for one hour.

Serves 10.

I found Elizabeth Barbone's Blue Ribbon Banana Bread recipe online. I checked the ingredients with those in my cookbook and they are the same. For some reason I haven't used this cookbook but think it's the first one I bought.

Best way is copy and paste the URL (from the address bar on the recipe page)

Or type it out long hand and give credit to the owner of the recipe ie. Banana bread recipe taken from the cookbook xxxxxx by xxxxxx

Here's the latest one I copied from this forum that I thought I'd try someday. It comes from Domino's Sugar:

Thanks everyone! I used to make banana bread once a month or so and I'm starting to miss it being 2 months on the diet. I'm looking forward to trying these recipes!

While this isn't banana bread, I thought it would fit right in though. I found this recipe in the AmericanProfile that comes in the Sunday paper.

http://www.americanprofile.com/recipes/banana-breakfast-coffee-cake/

I modified it so I could make it gluten free. I substituted the all-purpose flour with an equal amount of gluten free flour (use whatever blend you wish) and added 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum. We also do not like walnuts so I either use chopped pecans or, since I ran out of pecans, I used chopped almonds today. I also used three whole bananas which worked out to be about a 1/4 cup more than what the recipe called for. I had no other use of the leftover banana so in it went. It turned out fantastic and moist and everyone loved it. Next time I'm going to make extra of the topping and layer it in the cake also. This is just a nice change to banana bread. I have a recipe for banana spice cookies that are fab and I will find the link and post back with it.

Here is the Banana Spice cookie recipe:

This is a recipe from my Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book 10th edition. Original recipe is as follows and changes I made are marked with an * and in parenthesis.

375 degree oven

1/2 cup margarine or butter (I find that margarine works better. If using butter you will probably need to increase the flour by 1/4 cup or so)

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour *(I use a brown rice flour blend but any gluten free flour should work and add 1/4-1/2 tsp. xanthan gum)*

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/8 teaspoon ground cloves

3 bananas mashed (1 cup)

1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)

frosting *(can make your own vanilla or cream cheese frosting or ready made vanilla works nice also)*

Beat margarine or butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add about half of the flour, the sugar, eggs, baking powder, vanilla, cinnamon, soda and cloves. Beat till thoroughly combined. Beat in remaining flour. Beat in bananas. Stir in nuts. Drop by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart onto a greased cookie sheet. *(I used parchment paper)* Bake in a 375 deg. oven for 8 to 10 minutes *(found 8-9 min. was good)* or till edges are lightly browned. Cool cookies on a rack. Frost.

I wonder if you could sub peanut butter for the margarine and end up with Elvis Cookies?
