Gluten Free Banana Bread
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease the bottom(s) and 1/2 inch up the sides of one 9x5x3-inch or two 7 1/2x3 1/2x2-inch loaf pan(s); set aside. Line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with foil. Arrange bananas in the foil-lined pan. Prick banana peels with the tines of a fork at 1 inch intervals. Bake for 15 minutes (the peels will turn dark brown). Cool bananas in pan.
- In a large bowl combine Gluten-Free Flour Mix, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, and ginger. Make a well in the center of flour mixture; set aside.
- In a medium bowl combine eggs, sugar, and oil; set aside. Split banana peels with a small sharp knife; remove and discard peels. Measure 1 1/2 cups roasted bananas by gently pressing the pulp into measuring cups; stir the roasted bananas into egg mixture. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy). Fold in walnuts. Spoon batter into the prepared loaf pan(s).
- Bake for 55 to 60 minutes for the 9-inch pan, 45 to 55 minutes for the 7 1/2-inch pans, or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the center(s) comes out clean.* If necessary to prevent overbrowning, cover loosely with foil for the last 15 minutes of baking.
- Cool in pan(s) on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan(s). Cool completely on wire rack. Wrap and store overnight before slicing. (The quick bread's texture will be more evenly moist and less crumbly after standing.)
From the Test Kitchen
When you remove the toothpick, a few crumbs may be clinging to it, but there should not be any unbaked batter on the toothpick.
