Eggless Banana Apple - Walnut Raisin bread

Its December 1st and so officially its holiday season. I thought why not start of the holiday season with a sweet bread recipe, afterall its a sweet holiday!

A few posts back I blogged or rather just put up pics of a wonderful banana bread I baked. It was so yummy that I had to make it again soon. And I did, only this time made it eggless by adding apple sauce.
Its been sitting in my drafts for a long time, so what better time to post it now for the Hols....

The bread did come out, moist and sweet and yummy! Thats why the name Eggless Banana Apple - Walnut Bread.
Added raisins too this time along with walnuts, it sure was a good addition as well.

So if you want a sweet side to your holidays, go ahead, bake it and Enjoy it!

Original Recipe

Changes I made: using 2 bananas instead of 3, using apple sauce instead of eggs, lesser walnuts and using raisins.

Wet Ingredients:

2 bananas
2 small cups apple sauce, about 1 cup (substitute for eggs)
1/2 cup unsalted butter, 1 stick (melted in MW and cooled)
1 tsp vanilla extract

Dry Ingredients:

3/4 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped
2 heaped tbsp raisins
1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour, maida
3/4 cup granulated white sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Get your loaf pan ready b sparying oil or buttering and flouring it.

Mix all the wet ingredients together in a bowl.

Mix the wet ingredients together, smash the bananas with the apple sauce, butter and vanilla extract.

Gently fold the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients. Don't mix in too hard. It should remain chunky.
(The original recipe says that if  you mix it in to smooth, will yeild and rubbery bread.)

Pour into the loaf pan and bake for 1 hour or till cooked, untill the toothpick comes out clean. I kept checking it after 50 mins.

Cool it, or serve warm....tastes yummy Enjoy!!!
