Banana Bread

I found whole wheat pastry flour at the local whole foods store yesterday, which excited me greatly, so I was looking around for something to make with it and found this recipe for banana maple loaf from The Everyday Vegan, and then made a few substitutions based on what I had in the house. The verdict: delicious!

3/4 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
1 1/8 cups spelt flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup mashed overripe banana
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 cup soy milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp canola oil
1/4 cup each finely chopped pecans, dried cherries, and crystallized ginger

Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients, mixing well. In a separate bowl, combine mashed banana, applesauce, maple syrup, soy milk, vanilla, and canola oil. Add wet mixture to dry, and stir through until just well combined (don't overmix). Gently fold in pecans, cherries, and ginger. Pour into a lightly oiled loaf pan and bake for 45-50 minutes, until golden and a toothpick or skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
