       Title: Banana Loaf (Microwave)
  Categories: Home Cookin,
       Yield: 4
 
       1    1/2 cups all purpose
            flour ( I
            didn't sift it, since  high
            altitude requires a
            little extra
            flour)
     1/4 c  wheat germ
     1/3 c  best olive oil
     2/3 c  sugar
       1 c  mashed banana pulp (2-1/2
            bananas)
     1/2 ts grated orange rind
            (didn't have a lemon)
       2    eggs (egg substitute)
     1/2 c  broken pecan meats
       8    apricots, cut into very
            small
            pieces
            The recipe actually
            called for 1 1/2
         c  of banana pulp, but I
            made a
            mistake, and it didn't
            seem to
            matter - the bread
            definitely tasted
            more of banana than
            anything else.
            So, I guess you can vary
            the banana
            pulp, according to what’s
            on hand.
 
   Since I didn't have a loaf pan except one for Microwave, I
   decided to cook this recipe that way. It was a mistake - a loaf
   pan cooks the bread at the ends, first, and the middle didn't
   begin to look done till I'd cooked it 11 minutes. Next time, use
   the glass ring pan.
   Prepare ingredients: grate orange rind and set aside, mash
   bananas,
   dice the apricots and chop the nutmeats.
   Blend the oil, sugar and rind until creamy, then beat in the egg
   substitute and banana pulp.
   With the mixer on slow, add the baking powder, wheat germ and
   flour, then increase the speed to medium and beat the batter
   until smooth.
   Fold in the apricots and nutmeats.
   Spray the ring mold with canola oil spray. Scrape the batter into
   the mold and Microwave on high for 6 minutes (more if necessary).
   A toothpick inserted in the thickest part should come out clean.
   Turn out on a plate on a rack and cool before slicing.
