Banana Bread Recipe
0

13 posts in this topic

Someone asked for a recipe without any gums, and this could probably be adapted to use some other fruit besides bananas, also? I made it last Friday, came out great! I based it on a recipe in my 30 year old Fanny Farmer cookbook, which is my favorite. I used 2 bananas instead of 3, and left out the nuts just because I'm avoiding most nuts at the moment.

Banana nut bread

3 ripe bananas, well mashed

2 eggs, well beaten

2 cups flour [i used 1 cup white rice, 1/2 cup brown rice, 1/4 cup each of tapioca and potato starch]

3/4 cup sugar [i used 1/2 cup granulated cane and 1/4 cup light brown C&H sugar]

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder [i added this from the original, since it's gluten-free flours]

1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts (optional)

Mix everything together well, I mixed the wet & dry ingredients separately, then added the wet to the dry. It's a moderately stiff dough. Pour into a buttered loaf pan, bake for 1 hour at 350. Adjust for your oven, I baked it for about 55 minutes. Remove from pan on to a cooling rack for at least 30 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!

I make this all the time and it is great. I use my sorghum flour mix (with brown and white rice) with it and add cinnamon and a bit of nutmeg.

When I mentioned possibly using other fruits, I had maybe apple or pear in mind. I haven't had a mango in years, though. Please reply back and let us know how it is! And you're welcome. :)

I was also thinking of something with a little more "body"?? than mango". It's that nice stickiness of the banana I think that holds it together so nicely :) without the gum.

Yum! Looks great--I normally make my banana bread with the Gluten Free pantry Muffin Mix but will keep and try this too.

Shroomie--I always add cinnamon and nutmeg to my banana bread. Love it that way!

How much sorghum/brown/white rice do you use? Do you also mix potato starch or tapioca?

Looking at my blends (I have two, one for heavier, one for lighter) the ratios for sorghum, brown rice and tapioca are 1-1/2 / 1/ 1/2 and 1 / 1 / 1 respectively.

Thanks for your feedback, Marie & Mushroom. I think the mango might work because I googled recipes for mango bread today and they look pretty much the same as regular quick breads, but I could be really wrong. I'm not sure how much fruit pectin mango has compared to bananas or apples. Anyway, the mango is defrosted, I'll make it this weekend and report back. :D

Thank you! I will try that. It looks good!

I made the bread this morning substituting mango pulp and half a chopped apple for the mashed banana. I also added 1/2 cup sunflower oil to the wet mixture. My only remaining loaf pan is 8", so I poured some of the batter in two ramekins and baked them along with the bread.

The ramekins were cooked in less than 30 minutes and cooled quickly, so by the time the loaf was done, we were able to have delicious warm bread for breakfast! :D (They had nice eye appeal too, I tossed some dried cherries on top of them before baking.)

I'll be using this recipe often. DP loved it, noting that it didn't really taste like mangos.

My intentions were to make banana bread this morning and make a smoothie out of the mango. I picked up 4 dark skinned bananas at the fruit market on Friday (they charged me 9 cents for them). I peeled the first banana and it was perfect fruit for eating, but not overripe at all.

So I went with plan B (my original plan A) after eating the banana. Thanks again for the recipe.

    • I've lost 3-4 pounds.   It surprises me, as I would have expected to lose more, considering how limited my diet has been,  how sick I was since early May, and now walking 35 to 45 min. after dinner.   I think it's the increased gluten-free bread and shortbread cookies.  I've eaten more of these as they settle my stomach and are safe when I'm not sure what else will work.   I think I may also be having more sodium, so there may be a bit of water weight. I am actually doing better.   I've been on Famotidine 20 mg., 2x daily for about 9 days, and added Vit D a few days ago.   I've been able to drop one of 4-5 stacked pillows at night, and will try dropping one more tonight.   I am down to Tums (1500 mg.)  around 3-4 a.m. for mild heartburn / upset stomach, and again when I get up.   Not much else, maybe occasional simethicone.     i tried returning to a salad at dinner, just lettuce, tomato, and onions, but seemed to have more trouble overnight, so quit.  I'm mostly eating an egg with toast, well cooked sweet potatoes/mixed veggies, tuna, some salmon, hamburger, chicken, Ian's fish sticks, bone broth, Schar's breadsticks and shortbread, some soy milk or macadamia milk, and the bakery gluten-free bread.  
    • Ebetta posted this 6 years ago ... not sure she/he will respond
    • Welp, according to the lady at the gastro's office, my tests were all "fine" and I don't have cancer or celiac. I asked for a copy of the report so hopefully that will happen. I guess I will follow up with my family practice doctor and see what they think I should do next, but I am not going to go back on gluten again. My eye doctor is concerned about an inflammatory condition in my retinas, that is rapidly advancing over the last year and thinks that anything I can do to decrease inflammation should be done. So to me, that means sticking with gluten free and lots of vegetables, especially the leafy greens. Also need to figure out why my liver enzymes are elevated. This is the third time in the last 9 years according to my old labs. I've gone over all my supplements and my one medication (compounded thyroid) to make sure they are all gluten-free. My plan is to live like I have celiac disease from here on out. My only dilemma is what to give people as a reason why I can't eat the food they make for me. For now, "Gluten makes me deathly ill" is going to have to be good enough. thank you all for the help and advice! I've found a wealth of information here and am currently reading Dr. Fassano's book and a couple of different threads on this forum that are incredibly helpful.
    • Hello ebetta! Can you tell me have you found any other or even better drugs to help you with gastroparesis? 
    • That's interesting, thanks.  I will look into both - and I believe our forefathers' habit of boiling up bones was good for the joints, too.  I wonder if you could tell me, did you lose much weight through all of this? I have lost about 4-5 pounds since this began, and I don't really like losing weight when I'm not trying to. Mind you - some days I just can't eat, after lunch yesterday I couldn't face anything much at all.
