  • Portion size 12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh cranberry
  • 1 1/2 cup coarsely chopped frozen cranberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecan
  • 1/4 cup milk

Method

In large bowl, beat butter with sugar until fluffy; beat in eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each. Beat in bananas, vanilla and lemon juice.

In separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir into butter mixture alternately with milk, making 3 additions of dry ingredients and 2 of milk. Fold in cranberries and pecans. Scrape into prepared pan, smoothing top.

Bake in centre of 350°F (180°C) oven until cake tester inserted in centre comes out clean, about 1-1/4 hours. Let cool in pan on rack for 5 minutes. Remove from pan and peel off paper; let cool completely. Wrap in plastic wrap; store at room temperature for 24 hours before slicing. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 2 days or overwrap in heavy-duty foil and freeze for up to 2 weeks.) Makes 1 loaf, or 12 slices.
