Banana-PineBerry Bread

Had some bananas going bad and thought a banana bread might be in store, but then remembered this challenge and decided it was time to make up my own.  Had some pineapple and raspberries in the fridge too and so Banana-PineBerry Bread was born.

Took my favorite Banana Bread recipe....

Banana Bread
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
tsp baking soda
tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
2 slightly beaten egg whites
1 cup mashed banana
cup sugar
cup oil

Mix all wet ingredients, then mix in dry.  Spray loaf pan with nonstick spray.  Bake at 350* for  45-50 minutes.  Makes 1 loaf.

and changed it up where I thought fit.  Then tripled the recipe as I always like to make a bunch to freeze or give away.  Here's what I came up with...

Banana-PineBerry Bread

3 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
3 eggs - seperated
2 cups mashed banana
1/2 cup crushed pineapple
1/2 cup raspberries
2 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup melted butter

Seperate eggs, whip egg whites in one bowl, yolks in your mixing bowl.  In with yolks add banana, pineapple, sugar, and melted butter, mix thoroughly.  Then add both flours, baking powder and soda, cinnamon and salt.  Mix only until incorporated.  Fold whipped egg whites and raspberries in. Pour into 3 greased loaf pans.  Bake at 350* for 45-50 minutes.  Makes 3 loaves.

Ground the whole wheat.

Pureed the pineapple.  You could just use crushed.

All the ingredients ready to mix.

All nicely mixed. It's okay if you see some streaks of egg white.

Eye the batter evenly into the pans.

You can even cook them in a solar oven!

Straight from the oven.

Cut up.

Tada, gorgeous and delicious.

I want a solar oven!
I usually put blueberries in my banana bread, but I'm gonna have to try this version now.
Nicely done!

A delicious combination Smiley
And you make your own flour and use a solar oven too. Lots of awesome in one post.
