BLENDER BANANA BREAD
3/4 cup granular Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda
1 cup pecans, chopped, 4 ounces
1 tablespoon Da Vinci sugar free syrup, banana or vanilla flavor
2 tablespoons Carbquik
3 teaspoons baking powder
3 teaspoons banana extract
Add all of the ingredients to a blender, one by one in the order given, blending on HIGH after each addition. I recommend combining the Carbquik and baking powder for better blending. Be sure to blend the pecans very well because they make the "flour" in this recipe. Pour the batter in a greased 8x4" loaf pan and bake at 350º 30-40 minutes. Mine took 40 minutes to get browned enough. I lined my pan with foil, sprayed it with nonstick spray and it came out very easily. Cool in the pan on a rack; remove from the pan and cool completely before slicing. Store in the refrigerator or freeze.

This recipe is from someone with the nickname nawthwoodshuntress. The texture is very similar to Dottie's Pumpkin Pound Cake and it really does taste quite a bit like banana bread. There is a slight bitterness that I think may be from so much baking powder. Dottie's recipe only calls for 1 teaspoon, so I think I may cut it back in this recipe to 1 or 2 teaspoons rather than 3. Another slightly odd thing is that when eaten plain, this seems like it could use a pinch of salt, but when spread with salted butter, it seems a little too salty. I don't know if I'd want to mess with adding salt, but if the baking powder is reduced, it may need a pinch. I easily got 12 slices from my loaf.
