Papaya Bread!

I baked this bread last Sunday and it was quite easy and very tasty! Want to give a try? Here, have the recipe:

Preparation time: 2 hours 45 mts.

For making one loaf, you need the following ingredients:

  1. 1 cup shredded firm papaya
  2. 1/2 cup butter or Margarine, softened
  3. 1 cup sugar
  4. 2 eggs
  5. 1 1/2 cups a purpose flour (Maida)
  6. 1 tsp.baking Powder
  7. 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  8. 1/2 tsp. salt
  9. 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  10. 1/2 tsp. ground allspice (I did not have this, so did without this, still, tasty!)
  11. 1/2 tsp. ground Ginger
  12. 1/2 cup raisins
  13. 1/4 cup chopped walnut or cashew

  1. Drain Papaya on paper towels.
  2. Cream butter in a mixing bowl, using an electric mixer on medium speed.
  3. Gradually add sugar, beating well.
  4. Add eggs or the flax meal mixture.
  5. In another bowl, mix together the flour and all the other ingredients. Mix for 3 mts.
  6. Stir in papaya, raisins and walnuts.
  7. Spoon batter into a greased and floured 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch loaf pan.
  8. Bake in a pre-heated oven (350 F / 180 C) for 1 hour and 10 mts or until done.
  9. Let cool in the pan for 10 mts. Remove and cool it completely on a wire rack.
P.S.: If you don't want to use eggs, use this mixture:
Grind in a mixer, 4 tbsp. of flaxmeal (flax seeds) and add 1/4 tsp. baking powder, 6 tbsp.water and add to the bread dough.

We can make banana bread also in this method!
