Banana Bread with Currants and toasted Cashews and a Secret Ingredient (exposed)
I made a super ad-hoc loaf of banana bread this morning.
Here we go...
-4 super ripe bananas (small side)
-1/4 cup oil (I used olive)
-1/2 cup sugar
-2 Tbs maple syrup (molasses would be good too)
-3 Tbs Seedless Blackberry Jelly (its the secret ingredient)
-2 cups flour (I used whole wheat)
-3/4 tsp baking soda
-1 tsp cinnamon
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/4 tsp nutmeg
-currants about 1/2 cup
-cashews on top
Heat oven to 350 F and grease one loaf pan.
Smoosh the bananas real nice in a medium sized bowl. Then add the oil, sugar, syrup, and jelly and mix until well integrated.
Sift in the flour, baking soda, and spices and then mix until integrated. Add currants and mix 'em in.
Pour into pan and then sprinkle with nuts (I like cashews) and throw it in the oven for 60-75 minutes. Super fine!
