1 tsp. lemon juice
1/3 cup skim milk
quarter cup soft butter
7/8 cup white sugar
1 cup ripe mashed banana
1/2 finely grated zucchini
yolk of 1 egg
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup quinoa flour
1/4 cup ground flax seeds
1 full tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup (or 6) egg whites
1/2 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
I also add 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts just before baking. Some like it with 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips as well.
I play with the flours, by using different proportions and flour. Just don't exceed 2.25 cups. My mother's recipe used 2 cups white flour. You could use all quinoa or some old fashioned oatmeal
I bake it in a Bundt pan as it looks pretty and is easy to slice into 16 equal pieces. I dust it with 1 tsp. icing sugar if serving to company or giving it as a gift. It freezes well and keeps about a week at room temperature.
I often use this as a tasty emergency snack or breakfast food. My husband does not eat breakfast but he eats this!
Put lemon juice in a cup and slowly pour room temperature milk into juice. Let stand on counter for a few minutes to clubber. Add LAST to wet ingredients.
Cream butter & sugar. I use a food processor to mix all ingredients but last step of folding in beaten egg whites.
Add rest of wet ingredients, including curdled milk and process until well mixed.
Sift together flours, ground flax, salt & baking soda. Add to wet ingredients, in 3 batches. Process or mix until just blended.
EGG WHITES: Beat 6 or 1/2 cup pasteurized egg whites with 1/2 tsp. lemon juice until stiff and able to hold a peak.
GENTLY fold stiff egg whites into batter. When just mixed pour into GREASED Bundt pan or loaf pan.
Bake at 350 degrees F. for 40 to 45 minutes if using Bundt pan. Bake longer (50 to 60 minutes) in loaf pan.
Serving Size: Makes one loaf with 16 slices each
Number of Servings: 1
