A patient at the doctor's office where I work brought in this bread one morning while it was still warm. It was so good I made sure to get the recipe.

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, combine the eggs, bananas, oil and water. Stir into the dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in raspberries and walnuts.
  2. Pour into two greased 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pans. Bake at 350° for 55-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Yield: 2 loaves (12 slices each).
Editor's Note: If using frozen raspberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.

"Delicious! Very moist. Fresh raspberries worked great. I only have 1 bread pan, so I put the rest of the batter in a cupcake pan, but after it baked it seemed that it all may have fit in 1 pan for a taller bread, so I may try that next time."
