About this recipe: If you have a cake setting on your bread machine, this is a great banana bread recipe for the bread machine. Mine wasn't quite done so I put it on for some extra minutes on the bake setting, though bread machines will vary!
if you don't have raw sugar then try brown soft sugar.
I liked this recipe because it didn't have bicarb of soda in it. I did have to bake it for much longer and found the base and sides to be on the near side of burnt, however my husband loved these chewy cuts so none wasted. It made a moist, chewy bread, and the raisins and nuts gave a lovely texture. I will definitely be making this again. - 07 Nov 2010
