Banana Bread

Banana Bread

2 cups all-purpose flour;
1 teaspoon baking soda;
1/2 teaspoon salt;
½ teaspoon cinnamon;
¼ teaspoon nutmeg;
2/3 cup sugar;
2-1/2 T butter, softened;
1 1/2 cups mashed ripe banana (about 4 bananas);
3 T skim milk;
3 T fat-free sour cream or vanilla yogurt;
2 large egg whites;
½ t vanilla extract.


Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat loaf pan with cooking spray. In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Set aside.
In a different large mixing bowl OR stand mixer bowl, combine sugar and butter. "Beat at medium speed of a mixer until well-blended." Stop beater. Add banana, milk, sour cream, and egg whites. Resume beating until well combined.
Pour flour mixture into banana mixture and beat until everything is well-blended. 
Pour batter into loaf pan. Bake 60 or 70 minutes, or until loaf passes the toothpick test. (Insert a toothpick in the middle of the bread. If it comes out clean, you're golden.) Remove from oven. Let sit for 10 minutes on a wire rack. Pry bread from pan and let it cool totally on that same wire rack. For best flavor, wrap in tin foil and let sit overnight.
