Number of Servings: 12


    2/3 cup white sugar
    1/4 cup margarine, softened (reduced calorie)
    2 egg whites
    2 medium bananas mashed
    1/4 cup water
    1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    1 teaspoon cloves
    1 teaspoon nutmeg


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray one 9x5x3 inch loaf pan with a non-stick cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, beat the white sugar and margarine or butter until smooth and creamy. Beat in the eggs, water and bananas with the sugar mixture until it is well blended.
Mix in the flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder and spices just until the mixture is moistened. Be sure to scrape the sides of the bowl to blend all ingredients.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degree C) for about 60 minutes. Bread is done when the top is firm to the touch and a golden brown color. Time will vary according to loaf size and oven type. When bread is removed from oven, allow it to cool on it's side for 10 minutes, then remove from pan and let cool on a rack. This bread is also excellent if you add mini chocolate chips or small fruit pieces to the mix just before baking.

    Very Good
    It was delicious, however, next time I'd cook it for a lot less time. It didn't actually burn, but the outer "crust" is REALLY tough, and it's rather dry inside. But it still tastes good! - 12/8/07

    Very Good
    Really good! Very moist but, does fall apart quite easily. Did not have cloves so I used 1/2 tsp all spice instead. - 9/9/07
