Banana Bread (with pecans & raisins)


1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup semolina (rava)
1/2 cup Quaker oats
1 packed cup brown sugar
3 Ripe bananas
1 egg OR 1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup butter/vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon cardamom powder
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg powder
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup chopped pecans/walnuts
1/4 cup golden raisins


Mash the bananas in a mixing bowl. To this add the melted butter/vegetable oil and the sugar and mix all well. Then add the egg/milk and mix well with the banana and sugar mixture. Add the vanilla essence, cardamom powder and nutmeg along with the baking powder and baking soda and mix. Now add the whole wheat flour, all purpose flour, semolina and oats (one at a time) and mix everything well. : lastly add the chopped pecans and golden raisins.
Pour this mixture into a greased baking pan - you can use a loaf pan, a square pan, a round pan (I used a bundt pan) - bake in a preheated oven at 350°F for about 50 minutes to an hour. Check the cake by inserting a toothpick in the center - if it comes out clean - the cake/bread is baked.
