Submitted by: Susan
Recipe By :Bryanna Clark Grogan
Serving Size : 10
I just found this at vegsource, so I haven't made it yet. I omitted one of the optional ingredients (1/2 cup chopped nuts) to make it low enough in fat to meet the fatfree guidelines. The nutritional info at the bottom should be correct.
8 ounces medium-firm regular tofu -- OR 1 c. firm or extra-firm SILKEN tofu
1/4 cup water or juice
3/4 cup unbleached sugar -- or white beet sugar or Sucanat
2 medium ripe bananas -- peeled and chunked
2 teaspoons vanilla
zest of 1 orange -- (organic if possible; orange part only)
2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
OPTIONAL: 1/2 tsp. freshly-grated nutmeg
3/4 cup pitted dates -- chopped, or other dried fruit
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Blend the Wet Mix ingredients in a blender. In a medium bowl, mix the dry Mix ingredients. Stir in the blended mixture and mix BRIEFLY. Add fruit and optional nuts, stirring BRIEFLY. Pour into a greased loaf pan. Bake 1 hour. Cool a few minutes, then turn out on rack to cool.

The tofu and banana make this bread moist and tender without added fat.
