Banana Bread in the Crock Pot

1 3/4 C flour (some whole wheat)
2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/4 t baking soda
1/3 C butter/margarine
2/3 C sugar (I did 1/3 and added 1/3 C applesauce)
2 eggs, well beaten
2 T dark corn syrup (I did light)
3 ripe bananas, well mashed
1/2 C chopped walnuts (opt.)

Grease & flour your crock pot.  Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and soda in a small bowl; set aside.

Cream butter in large bowl with electric mixer at med-high until fluffy.  Slowly add sugar, eggs, corn syrup, and mashed bananas.  Beat until smooth.  Gradually add flour mixture to creamed mixture.  Add nuts, mix well.  Pour into Crock-Pot.  Cover.  Cook on high 1 1/4 - 1 1/2 hours or until toothpick comes out clean.

Let cool (minimum 5 minutes), then invert onto serving platter.  (I was really worried that it wouldn't come out, but it did -- just fine!).

(The bread was plenty sweet and plenty moist.  I really liked this recipe! I want to make more breads in the Crock Pot now!)

This was from the Best Loved Slow Cooker Recipes cook book, page 208.
