Safe Handling Instructions: Raw flour is not ready-to-eat and must be thoroughly cooked or baked before eating to prevent illness from bacteria in the flour. Do not eat or play with raw dough; wash hands, utensils, and surfaces after handling.
Whole-Grain Banana Bread: Ingredients: 2 cups thoroughly mashed banana; about 4 or 5 medium bananas; ½ cup vegetable oil; 1 cup brown sugar; 2 large eggs; 1 teaspoon vanilla extract; 1 cup King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour; 1 cup King Arthur White Whole Wheat Flour; 1 teaspoon baking soda; ½ teaspoon baking powder; ¾ teaspoon salt; 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, optional; ½ cup chopped walnuts, toasted if desired; optional. (1) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9 inches x 5 inches loaf pan (2) In a large bowl, stir together the mashed banana, oil, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. (3) Mix the flours, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and chopped walnuts into the banana mixture. Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl and mix again to thoroughly combine the ingredients. (4) Scoop the batter into the prepared pan. Top with 1 tablespoon sugar mixed with ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon, if desired. (5) Bake the bread for about 60 to 75 minutes, tenting with foil after 50 minutes. The finished bread will feel set on the top, and a paring knife (or other thin knife) inserted into the center will come out clean. (6) Remove the bread from the oven. Cool it in the pan for 15 minutes, then turn it out of the pan onto a rack to cool completely. Yield: 1 loaf. Say no to raw dough. Flour is a raw ingredient. Bake fully before enjoying.
After opening, keep cool and dry in a sealed container. Freeze for prolonged storage.
