Sugar Free Banana Bread

Post them up and every so often I'll snaffle them and put them on the blog, if that's okay? It'll save you the trouble of emailing them to me. (It will mean you lose out on our charming personal interaction but I sense you can live with that.)

I will be making this over the weekend too as i have about 10 banas to use up!! This always goes down well in our house, even with my fussy DD.

Can it be frozen??

I was wondering about freezing. I should think so as it's pretty robust. I was also going to try freezing some mashed banana - you know when you have some bananas left in the fruit bowl looking very sad, but no time to make a cake? I wondered about mashing them and freezing the right quantity for a cake. Can't hurt to try I suppose.

I don't think it lasts very well out of the freezer so best eaten on the same day (oh go on its got to be eaten!) so I wouldn't bother freezing. You could always freeze the banana instead.
Let me know if I'm wrong tho!!

i have frozen them in mini muffin form (that's how i often cook them as they only take about 10mins then) but i agree with mae'r that they defrost fine but are then best eaten straight away.

i have also frozen loaf but i sliced it first then but greaseproof sheets between the slices so i could defrost one slice at a time if needed.

I'm a newbie to this forum, but made this bread yesterday for the first time - forgot the baking powder (oops!) but it is really yummy! However, had a mini panic today went I went to give a slice to my 8mth old son as I included sultanas and wondered if they would be a choking hazard?? He hasn't got his pincer grip sorted yet, so I've been working to the principle that anything he can't pick up himself - which would include sultanas - is a choking hazard. Am I worrying unnecessarily?

Hi hun *waves*,

I've given it to Jacob, I figure as the sultanas/raisins break down and go squishy in the cooking process, then it's fine.

However, Jacob wasn't at all keen on it, and DH doesn't like bananas, so I just had to eat it all myself. Shame ;)

Made the banana bread this morning and it turned out great!

My variations: I used one banana, one small grated carrot, dash of cinnamon and I only used the egg yolk as I am avoiding egg white for the LO until he is one as there is eczema on DH's side.

Will definitely be making this again and experimenting with it! Thanks for the recipe!

I made this yesterday I found it very easy and used Aitch's tip of melting butter in the microwave instead of rubbing in. The just added all the wet stuff to the dry stuff and folded in. We only have a huge loaf tin - I would have needed to triple or quadruple the recipe to fill it so we put it into the muffin tin and made six small muffins instead. They were baked in half an hour. I don't like raisins so I didn't try them but H ate some and MIL said it would be nice if I'd done it in a loaf tin and then she could have sliced and buttered the pieces. Thanks!

i've just taken mine out of the oven... i'm tempted to burn my tongue to taste, i'm holding back!!! I put dried cranberries in mine, almost bought some raspberries when i was at the shop to put in it but not when i saw they were from usa! what a luxurious jet setting lifestyle those rasps lead!

I made this in a loaf tin before and was a bit disappointed (probably more to do with my lack of cooking skills than the recipe!), but I have just used original quantities (SF flour + 1tsp baking powder) into 8 muffins, cooked for 20 mins at 160 fan oven, and they are gorgeous!! Made them for DS's birthday, but I might scoff them all tonight!! Thanks!!!

I was going to post on this thread about what a forgiving recipe it is. I totally misread it this afternoon (6 months pg, non-napping toddler, impending house move: is it any wonder my brain is mush?)

Anyway, I used TWICE as much flour as needed, and had rubbed the butter in by the time I realised. So added an extra egg, and a slosh of milk until it looked vaguely right.

Made it in muffin tins, no idea how long I cooked them for, probably until I had a moment to take them out between mopping up wee and reading Monkey Puzzle for the 100th time today.

But, they are still yummy!

And I will use Aitch's tip next time - genius!

Just wanted to say that I made these in muffin form, used Aitch's melted butter trick, one heaped teaspoon of baking powder and cooked them at 175 for probably about 25 mins and they worked a treat. Perfect size for LO to hold and they have frozen and defrosted really well. Have had lots of compliments/admiring glances from mums and babies!

i make these regularly, usually as muffins, to take to coffee mornings etc. easier than the loaf for me, as ready portioned. :)
