The same day my husband sought out and found a Low Fat Banana bread recipe that was "almost" there. He modified the indgredients but kept the simple recipe the way it was, hoping that perhaps we could create a well balanced, healthy, low fat banana bread.
Well lo and behold! Not only did my husband find a nice low fat banana bread he certainly made it yummier. Simple to follow. Easy to make. Tasty to eat. I think you'll enjoy it. (I've noted hubby's mods down below where appropriate)
Preheat oven to 325°F. Lightly grease 8 1/2x4 1/2x2 1/2-inch pan; dust with flour. Using electric mixer; beat eggs and sugar in large bowl until thick and light, about 5 minutes. Mix in smashed bananas, buttermilk, oil and vanilla. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt over mixture; beat until just blended. Transfer batter to prepared pan.
Bake bread until golden brown on top and tester inserted into center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Turn bread out onto rack and cool.
My husband took the original recipie and modified it to give our family a little lift into our stepwise approach into a healthy food lifestyle. This cake is to DIE for. Rich in banana flavour, and very addictive. When he makes them I always ask him to make two because one doesn't last the day.
I strongly suggest you try out his modifications. Why not bake one of each and see which one tastes better. I'm sure you'll agree that our healthy alternative is a tasty alternative.
