This is new twist on an old favourite. Due to the expense of babana's, I decided to use pear and zucchini because they are inexpensive and in season.
This is a great sweet treat for older babies and other members of the family. It is wonderful for hiding extra vegies into food to maximise nutrients for you children.
Even though the zucchini sounds horrible it makes the bread really moist.
11/4 cup self raising flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup coconut
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup orange juice
1 pear, peeled and grated
1 small zucchini, pealed and grated
1. Preheat oven to 180. Grease 14cmx21cm loaf pan.
2. Sift flour and cinnamon into a large bowl, rub in butter.
3. Stir in sugar, coconut, egg, milk, orange juice, pear and zucchini. Do not overbeat mix, the batter should be lumpy.
4. Spoon mixture into prepared pan. bake in the oven for about 30 minutes or until cooked when tested. Stand bread 10 minutes before turning onto a wire rack.
To serve, toast bread and top with cream cheese.
