Perfect Vegan Banana Bread

I have finally perfected vegan banana bread. Unlike most of the banana bread recipes I have used, this one is moist and light. I thought I'd share it.

2 T Earth Balance (vegan margarine)
3/4 cup sugar
4 ripe bananas
1/3 cup water
1/2 t cider vinegar
2 cups white flour
2 T soy milk powder
1 1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1/2 t ground nutmeg

Heat the oven to 350 degrees, and grease a square 8x8 baking pan (I use a glass one). In a large bowl, cream the Earth Balance and the sugar, add the bananas, and mix until smooth.

Mix together the dry ingredients. Add the vinegar to the wet ingredients, and add the wet mixture to the dry. Bake for an hour.

I'll just say here that Elaine's not exaggerating. This banana bread is perfect. And it rules.

Hi Elaine,
I am a student of Michael's and he mentioned this recipe on his blogspot. My daughter has been a vegetarian since July and she has been drinking soy milk, too. I think she will love this banana bread. I am always looking for recipes for bananas that get too ripe.

I just made this recipe and added some vegan chocolate chips--about half a bag or so. It was great. Not quite as healthy as the original, but a little chocolate is always good for the soul.
