Banana Cashew Raisin Bread

This recipe makes a very moist and tasty banana bread. All my family and friends love it.. :) Its quite simple and easy to make, just one of those recipes you can never go wrong, as there are no set mixing rules. I came across this recipe a few years back on a website, jotted it down and has been making it quite frequently ever since. I have tried several versions of it and the recipe posted here is the one closest to the original. So, here you go... 


1. Sugar - 2 cup
2. Salt - 1/2 tsp
3. All purpose flour - 2 1/4 cups
4. Vegetable oil - 3/4 cup
5. Eggs - 3 large
6. Vanilla extract- 1 tsp
7. Baking powder - 1 1/2tsp
8. Buttermilk - 1/4 cup
9. Nuts - 1 cup Feel free to use nuts of your choice. I normally use cashews, pecans or walnuts.
10. Raisins - 1 cup
11. Bananas - 4-5 bananas (use completely ripe almost black bananas)


1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 F. 
2. Grease the pan for baking with butter or cooking spray. 
3. In a large bowl mash the bananas with a masher or hands. 
4. Dissolve the baking powder in buttermilk. It will foam in a few minutes. 
5. Mix all ingredients with the bananas one by one. 
6. Bake at 350 F  for about 50-60 mins or until a toothpick comes out clean. 
7. Let cool for about 15 - 20 mins. 

Enjoy ! :D
