Banana Bread w/ oatmeal


I would have made my favorite banana bread but we're out of sour cream so I went searching for something new. I wasn't really fond of this one but the kids finished off both loaves in one afternoon and raved the whole time so I guess it was still a hit here!

Banana Bread
1 cup raisins
6 bananas (large ripe mashed)
1/2 cup oil
1 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup quick oats
Topping
2 tablespoons quick oats
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar

Preheat the oven to 350°.
Place the raisins in a coffee mug and add hot water to plump them.
In a mixing bowl mash the bananas and them cream oil and sugar.
Add the egg, beating well.
Mix in the extract.
Combine flour, baking soda, and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture.
Add the quick oats.
Drain the water off the raisins and add them to the cake mix.
Pour into a greased 9 by 5 by 4 loaf pan.
Combine topping ingredients; sprinkle over the batter.
Bake at 350° for 23-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack
