Banana Papaya Bread

Banana Papaya Bread!!
The papaya in this recipe compliments the banana flavor really well. The addition of dried fruits adds a little something extra to this already delicious recipe!
I made it once with black raisins and walnut and 2nd time I tried it with cashew nuts, figs and raisins.
Preparation Time: 20 Min
Baking Time: 45 Min

Ingredients:
· 1 cup all purpose flour
· 1 cup over ripe bananas, mashed well
· 1 cup ripe papaya, mashed
· 1 tsp baking powder
· ¼ tsp salt
· ½ cup butter
· 1 cup sugar
· 2 eggs, beaten
· ½ cups dried fruits or any other nuts you have at hand
Method:
1. Pre heat the oven for 10 minutes.
2. In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt. Sieve the mixture well.
3. In a separate bowl cream together butter and sugar.
4. Stir in eggs, mashed bananas, papaya and dried fruits until well blended.
5. Gently stir this mixture into flour mixture where it just moistens. 6. Lightly grease a loaf pan.
7. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan. 8. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes or until brown. Insert a toothpick into center of the loaf, where if it comes out clean, the bread is ready to eat!
9. Let bread cool in loaf pan for 10 minutes, then remove slice and eat! TIPS:
· If you don’t like papaya you can just add an extra 1/2 cup of mashed banana. You can check the recipe of Banana Walnut bread at: http://anjaliskitchen.blogspot.com/2009/07/banana-walnut-bread-today-i-thought-i.html
· You can use dried fruit or perhaps some of your favorite nuts.
