Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a loaf pan.
  2. Mash thawed raspberries in a bowl with a fork; press raspberries through a sieve to remove seeds. Mash banana in another bowl with a fork.
  3. Combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg in a bowl. Beat sugar, eggs, raspberries, banana, and vegetable oil in a bowl with an electric mixer set on low until smooth, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir flour mixture into raspberry mixture until batter is just moistened; stir in lemon extract. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

This was pretty high in fat, so I did everything I could to lighten it, and it was successful. I used Egg Beaters, Splenda Sugar Blend, and substituted half of the oil with applesauce. Even with these modifications, this bread came out melt-in-your-mouth moist and flavorful. I don't mind raspberry seeds (now blackberries, that's a different issue), so I didn't sieve them. I wanted to have some chunks of raspberries in the bread, so I just lightly mashed them and added them along with the flour. I was concerned that if I beat the raspberries with the mixer, it would totally pulverize them. Thicknik, my apologies for the changes, since I don't usually do that the first time through. I had an idea of what I wanted, and this still is a delicious bread. For others who are watching their diet as I am these days, this will give them an option. Either the way it's written or the way I prepared it, it's still a winner. Thanks for sharing.

Delicious! Also translates perfectly into muffins, just bake for about 30 min. I only had sweetened raspberries on hand, so I used a bit less sugar. I didn't have any lemon extract--vanilla worked just fine. Folding the raspberries into the batter at the very end gave me the bigger berry chunks I wanted.
