Original recipe yields 1 - 9x5 inch loaf

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray one 9x5x3 inch loaf pan with a non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat the white sugar and margarine or butter until smooth and creamy. Beat in the eggs, water and bananas with the sugar mixture until it is well blended.
  3. Mix in the flour, baking soda, salt and baking powder just until the mixture is moistened. Be sure to scrape the sides of the bowl to blend all ingredients.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degree C) for about 60 minutes. Bread is done when the top is firm to the touch and a golden brown color. Time will vary according to loaf size and oven type. When bread is removed from oven, allow it to cool on it's side for 10 minutes, then remove from pan and let cool on a rack. This bread is also excellent if you add mini chocolate chips or small fruit pieces to the mix just before baking.

I LOVED this recipe. After mulling over all the reviews, I changed it up as follows: 1) Added 1/2 cup of bananas, 2) 1 Cup white flour, 2/3 cup wheat flour, 3) Did 1/2 brown and 1/2 white sugar, 4) used applesauce instead of margarine, 5) added 1t of vanilla, 6) added 1t of cinnamon, 6) used milk instead of water, and 7) added 1/2 cup of walnuts. It turned out SO moist and no different than full-fat banana bread.

I replaced the margarine in this recipe with 1/8 cup applesauce and the eggs with 6 tbs. egg substitute. This made it completely fat free. It still came out as moist and delicious as ever!!! With these changes, you should lower the oven temperature to 325 and bake it for 40-45 minutes depending on oven. Great fat free recipe!!

I, too substituted applesauce for the butter and used only egg whites, making this virtually fat-free. To battle my fiance's chocolate cravings, I added unsweetened cocoa powder to half the batter and made a two-layer loaf. Um, yum! Thanks for the healthy and versatile recipe!
