Banana Bread

This is the version of banana bread my kids love the most.

Non-stick cooking spray
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup vegetable or canola oil
2 large egg whites
1 1/2 cups banana puree
1/2 cup squash puree (I use baby food for this part)
1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Coat a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan with cooking spray.

In a bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine sugar and oil with a wooden spoon until well combined. Mix in egg whites, bananas, squash and vanilla. Add the flour mixture and mix until just combined.

Pour the batter into the loaf pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 55 to 60 minutes.

Did I change anything? I added the squash. The original recipe suggest adding cauliflower puree, but I am too lazy to buy it, so I add squash puree and just use baby food. Also, I had substituted applesauce for the oil in this recipe before, but it doesn’t turn out as good; the applesauce makes it too sweet.

What does the family think? I made a loaf today at about 4:00p.m. and it was almost gone by 8:30p.m. I’d say they like it.
