Roasted Banana Bread

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 15x10-inch baking pan with foil. Place bananas in prepared pan. Prick banana skins with a fork at 1 inch intervals. Roast 15 minutes (skins will turn dark brown); cool. Grease bottom and 1/2 inch up sides of one 9x5-inch or two 7 1/2x3 1/2-inch loaf pans.
  2. In a large bowl stir together next seven ingredients (through ginger). Make a well in center of flour mixture.
  3. In a medium bowl combine eggs, sugar, and oil. Split banana skins and measure 1 1/2 cups roasted bananas; stir into egg mixture. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy). Fold in walnuts. Spread batter in prepared loaf pan(s). If desired, sprinkle with Streusel-Nut Topping.
  4. Bake 55 to 60 minutes for 9x5-inch pan, 45 to 55 minutes for 7 1/2x3 1/2-inch pans, or until a toothpick comes out clean. If necessary to prevent overbrowning, cover loosely with foil the last 15 minutes of baking. Cool in pan(s) on a wire rack 10 minutes. Remove from pan(s); cool completely on rack. Wrap and store overnight before slicing.
