Maple (Walnut) Banana Bread
(originally made 3/15/08)
Made this up because I was overrun with ripe bananas. Searched high and low for my loaf pan, couldn't find it, so ended up using a 9x9 square pan instead. Made streusel with 1/2c white whole wheat flour, 1/2c maple sugar and about 4T butter. The topping needed a few more T of butter, came out a little dry and crumbly. Tim thought the cake itself wasn't very moist, but I'm 99% sure that it was a combination of cook's error (judging the time wrong for new pan size) and the fact that I used white whole wheat flour instead of AP. Will definitely give it another try.

Maple Walnut Banana Bread
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour (I used white whole wheat)
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (2 to 3 medium)
3 tablespoons butter or stick margarine -- melted ( I used butter)
2 tablespoons fat-free milk
1/4 teaspoon maple flavoring
1/4 cup chopped walnuts (omitted due to allergies)
In a bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Combine the eggs, bananas, butter, milk and flavoring; mix well. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Spoon into an 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pan coated with nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle with walnuts. Bake at 350' for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.
