  1. Method:
  2. - Preheat the oven to 180C.
  3. - In a large bowl, break the egg and mix in the sugar. Use an electric blender to whisk them together until the egg is fluffy and the sugar starts to dissolve.
  4. - Now add the vegetable oil and mashed bananas to the mix and whisk some more.
  5. - Once all the wet ingredients are mixed, in a separate bowl, mix the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and oats.
  6. - Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients one spoon at a time. Mix the ingredients well.
  7. - Take a 9x5 inch baking loaf pan and grease the insides.
  8. - Pour the batter in the pan.
  9. - Roll the raisins in a little flour (this will prevent them from sinking to the bottom) and sprinkle them on the top of the batter.
  10. - Sprinkle 3 tablespoons of crushed oats on top of the raisins.
  11. - Bake the bread in the oven for about an hour. Check if the bread is ready by inserting a toothpick in the center; if it comes out clean, it is done.
  12. - Remove the bread from the pan and let it cool on a wire rack.
  13. - Cut in slices to serve.
  14. Variations:
  15. - While banana bread is easy to prepare and can be eaten as it is, it makes a delicious pudding base too.
  16. - You can use the banana bread to make a banana split pudding by adding layers of chocolate sauce and cream cheese frosting.
  17. - Warm banana bread makes a perfect combination with Irish coffee. You can even add some prepared coffee to the batter to get the coffee taste in the bread itself.
  18. - Dust some icing sugar on the bread before serving.
