#3879 - Fresh Raspberry Banana Cake

(by Shirley McNevich)

3/4 cup fresh raspberries
1 ripe banana
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 to 1/2 tsp. cinnamon (your choice)
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup canola oil
1 tsp. vanilla

Mash the raspberries in one bowl, then peel and mash the ripe banana in another bowl. In a third bowl add flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and nutmeg--stir to mix. In a mixer add white sugar and eggs--beat. Add mashed raspberries, mashed banana, vanilla and canola oil--beat. Remove bowl from mixer--add flour mixture--stir just until mixed. Pour batter into a greased bread loaf pan. Bake at 325 degrees 50-60 minutes--test with a toothpick for doneness. Cool for 10 minutes, then loosen and place on a cake plate to cool completely. Optional--once cake is cooled, dust the top with powdered sugar.
