Shelly's Delicious Homemade Banana Raisin Bread Recipe

One of my favorite fruits are bananas and I was hungry for some banana bread. Early this morning I baked a fresh loaf of Banana Raisin Bread. You can top it with vanilla or cream cheese frosting (we did vanilla). It came out super nice because I used a silicone bread loaf baking pan...nicely browned on all sides as you can see! I like to store my handmade breads in the Tupperware Modular Mates Rectangular Size 4 Container.

In addition, buy yourself a tub of honey butter. This bead and most other types of bread taste even more delicious when you drizzle melted honey butter on top of your sliced bread. Yummy!

Banana Raisin Bread Recipe

1/3 cup butter, melted
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 cup mashed ripe bananas
3 tbsp milk
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, optional

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a loaf pan. Stir together butter, sugar and eggs, blend in banana and milk. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt. Add to banana mixture, stir until dry ingredients are moistened. Fold in raisins and walnuts. Spoon batter into pan. Bake for 60 minutes or until done.

Can I ask what's on top of the bread in this pic?

Vanilla Frosting! (Homemade vanilla frosting, like the kind you would make for a cake).

OK...I'm an idiot. I just reread your description. Thanks for answering in spite of my ditziness.

This Banana Bread looks delicious. I made a banana bread today too, only it was from a box, still delicious though with melted butter on it.

I wanted to thank you for visiting and reply here to your question. I started Briar Rabbit by La D Da 2days ago, I have also been working on another piece though and mostly only stitched on that one yesterday. I should be done with the whole piece in a couple of days. Here is an address to this design: http://www.123stitch.com/cgi-bin/itemdetail.pl?item=07-1640
