Anything Bread

This is a great recipe if you've got anything you need to use up. It was posted some time ago, on the FoodWine list, and I finally got around to trying it a couple of weeks ago, when I had some bananas which were way past their prime. I used raisins instead of nuts...still trying to figure out a good crunchy substitute for the nuts in recipes.

Anything Bread

3 cup flour
1 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoons baking soda
1 tablespoons cinnamon
3 eggs
1 cup oil
2 cup sugar
2 cup "Anything"
3 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup chopped nuts


Sift together flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon and set aside.

Beat eggs in large bowl. Add oil and sugar and cream well.

Add "anything" and vanilla.

Add dry ingredients. Mix well.

Add nuts. Spoon into 2 greased and floured loaf pans or a large Bundt pan.

Bake at 350 F for 40 minutes (loaves) or 50 to 55 minutes (Bundt pan).

Cool in the pan for 15 minutes and then turn out onto rack to cool completely.

Recipe Notes:
The anything in this recipe can be one or any combination of: grated apples, mashed bananas, grated carrots, chopped dates, pumpkin puree, raisins, chopped rhubarb, chopped strawberries (or any other berry), grated squash or zucchini, etc.
