    All-Bran Banana Bread

    The addition of All-Bran breakfast cereal to this Banana Bread recipe,
    makes for a healthier bread with a richer taste and spongier texture

    3 large bananas (approx)
    2 eggs
    2 cups All-Bran cereal
    2 cups flour
    3/4 cup granulated sugar
    1/2 cup butter or shortening
    1 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp salt

    Preheat oven to 350F (180C) Peel and mash the bananas, you need to end up
    with 1 1/2 cups. If you have too little add another banana, too much then
    don't use all the banana. Soften the butter/shortening Break the eggs into
    a bowl and beat well. Sift together the flour, baking powder, soda and salt.
    Combine the All-Bran and mashed bananas in a separate bowl and let this
    mixture stand for approx 5 minutes. Cream the butter and sugar together,
    fold in the eggs and then the banana/cerealmixture. Beat well. Stir in the
    sifted flour and mix until the flour is evenly distributed through the
    mixture. Grease a 9X5X3" loaf pan and spoon in the mixture. Place in the
    preheated oven and bake the banana bread for 60 minutes. It is done when a
    toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Remove the banana
    breadfrom the oven and allow to cool slightly in the loaf tin. Turn out
    onto a rack to complete cooling. Slice and serve the banana bread buttered
    or with honey.
