“This fragrant bread is better than original banana bread. If you don't have cardamom, you can substitute ground nutmeg. This bread keeps for 5 days without refrigeration.” - by Jen
Original recipe yields 1 loaf
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease one 9x5 inch loaf pan.
- In a small saucepan, combine the raisins and the rum. Cook over medium heat until simmering, then remove from the heat and allow to cool 10 minutes.
- In a large bowl, mix together the mashed bananas, brown sugar, canola oil, and eggs with an electric mixer for 1 minute. Sift together the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and ground cardamom; stir into the egg mixture with a spoon until well blended, Stir in the walnuts and the rum soaked raisins last. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow bread to cool slightly before removing from the pan.
