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.)

These were great! So glad this thread got bumped!

Mine were a bit dry as I didn't have quite enough banana once it was all mashed and didn't have enough creativity to find something else to throw in. I made the muffin form as well since it's a really hot day here and figured having the oven on for only 30 minutes instead of an hour would be a good thing.

I've just frozen some over-ripe bananas and was looking for an idea of what to do with them when I stumbled across this thread - now I can't wait to get to Sainsburys to buy the extras I need to make it !!! Gutted its Sunday night and Mr Sainsbury has gone home for the weekend !!!

Its in the oven - very exciting ! Although it did occur to me as I was pouring my mixture into the tin and saw the raisins - that chocolate chips would be de-lish in it !!! I reckon I could get away with it as there is no sugar in it ...

Ahh - that reminds me - my mum used to make the BEST banana and chocolate muffins ... mmmmmmm

I have to say I've been cooking this cake way way longer than I've been posting on here and it's brilliant! THANK YOU!

I have made this quite a few times and it is so yummy, probably a bit naughty though as I eat more than I should and justify it by the 'no sugar' content!

apologies if this has already been asked but ds won't give me a chance to go through all the posts...
I don't have mixed spice and am not sure if its available here. What could I use instead?
Looking forward to making these.

I just used cinnamon and maybe a bit of nutmeg. Not sure if that is like mixed spice, but I put cinnamon in my other "sugary" banana bread, so I figured it would work here too.

lovely! Very easy to make, but i cooked my 2nd one at 170 for 40 mins as my fan assisted oven tends to be hot! Made one for my friend who is expecting twins and told her about web site :-)

We make this all the time, and Luke's favourite imaginary food when he is playing is always 'nana cake' :D Just thought I would add that I hide all sorts of veg in here - I know BLW purists don't hide food but, hey, I have a toddler who eats nothing green. But I hide courgette, spinach (from the frozen balls) and carrot in the nana cake, and he never complains!

Add dates for sweetness :) super-moist variation.

Postby Breebie » 29 Dec 2010, 00:38

I just made this, after having used a staple banana cake recipe for many years. It doesn't QUITE compare, but then my other one has a lot of sugar in it, so no surprises! I did manage to add some nice natural sweetness by adding chopped dates rather than raisins - here's my modified recipe (and I've used cups instead of oz, I'm from Australia!)

1 cup sr flour
bit of mixed spice or cinnamon
80gm butter (i upped it a bit)
1/2 cup chopped dates (after first taste test, i reckon i'd make it a full cup next time)
2 eggs (i added an extra as it didn't seem wet enough for my liking)
2 bananas (again, for moisture - you could sub in a grated apple)

as per original recipe, rub butter into flour, chop dates and add to dry mix (you can actually partially rub in the dates too if you have nice soft ones). whisk eggs in separate bowl, mash bananas and add all to dry mix. pour into loaf pan (or muffin pan - but reduce baking time) and bake fan-forced 180 degrees for 45 mins or until golden-brown and firm to touch.

my cake came out SOOO moist and lovely, and my little boogie (nearly 10 months) gobbled it down with lots of noises of satisfaction!

I made muffins using your adaptation Breebie, and added another banana and used a bit more than a cup of dates and dried apricots. I soaked the dates and apricots in hot water for a couple of hours first. (could soak in hot apple juice... there's a thought for next time I make them, which will be this afternoon). They were fantastic and Moo loved them.

Well it's been a very long while since I made this but did yesterday with banana, raisins and chocolate chips and it was super scrummy, as usual! Took it to a friend's house where I knew the other mums would appreciate the addition of chocolate as much as me - all gone in minutes :D

Does this work as well if the bananas aren't quite ripe (but still edible IYSWIM)?
