Orange Raisin Five Spice Banana Bread

We experiment quite a bit with our favorite banana bread recipe. We’ve developed chocolate versions, added white chocolate or chocolate chips and all have turned out well.

Give ripe bananas a brand new life!

This is another great version that would make a delicious addition to any lunchbox or brown bag lunch. It would also be especially enjoyed when served warm at a weekend brunch.

As with any of our great versions of banana bread, we sometimes make them in little, muffin sized loaf pans. They are a great addition to packed lunches or as a grab and go morning treat.

We always call these little loaves crinkle cakes, small snack cakes that I remember from my childhood.

Orange Raisin Five Spice Banana Bread - what a wonderful combination of flavours in this heavenly scented banana bread. Another great use for ripe bananas.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3 medium ripe bananas, mashed
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp Chinese five spice powder (See note for substitute)
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • zest of one orange finely minced
  • 1/2 cup raisins

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Beat sugar and oil in a bowl. Add eggs, mashed banana and orange zest.
  3. Sift together dry ingredients and fold into banana mixture alternately with orange juice.
  4. Fold in raisins.
  5. Pour batter into 1 large greased loaf pan (about 9x5) and sprinkle the tops with turbinado sugar if desired for a little extra crunch.
  6. Bake for 45 minutes to an hour depending upon pan size. A toothpick inserted in the center which comes out clean is the best indicator that the loaf is fully baked.

Notes

In this recipe, if you don't have five spice powder, you can use 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp cloves and 1/4 tsp allspice or nutmeg instead.

Your recipes never fail. I had 4 small overripe bananas and I came across this gem. I made some substitutions: cranberries for raisins, honey for sugar, and coconut oil for vegetable oil. I also added 2/3 cup oats since the honey added liquid. I also made them into muffins. The flavors blended beautifully and the texture and consistency was perfect. I am getting rave reviews from family. Thank you!!
