Do you recommend this same recipe for pumpkin and blueberry breads?

In pumpkin bread, you could sub pumpkin puree straight across for the mashed banana and it should turn out just fine.

If you want to make a blueberry bread, I'd recommend keeping the banana in the recipe for moisture and texture and binding properties - or sub applesauce (though applesauce doesn't work quite the same way as banana, you might want to use a little less applesauce).

Or just Google "vegan pumpkin bread" and you'll find a lot of options.

ETA: Sorry, I'm not Michael but I have no idea if Michael has actually ever made this recipe so figured I could give as accurate an answer as he might...

If you like to talk to tomatoes,

If a squash can make you smile,

If you like to waltz with potatoes,

Up and down the produce aisle...

I love it - Veggie Tales!

The Banana bread sounds good.

mmm, this sounds good. One question though, do I use the silken tofu for this?

I made this today--I used 2 tbsp lower calorie margarine and 2tbsp applesauce in place of oil, 3/4c splenda in place of 1c sugar, used 6oz morinu silken lite tofu which came to almost exactly 3/4 cup when blended, and added a dash of apple cider vinegar to my bananas.

I was all ready to bake this tasty treat and had even plopped it in the oven when realized I had to go, and wouldnt be back for another 4 hours! Ahhh! I took it out of the oven (the pan was warm but that was all), put a damp cloth ontop of it and left it, hoping that when I baked it later it would still be ok.

In the end, it was indeed fine.. it was a little flat and very bready--but its nice, its like a sweet bread. Next time I'll make sure to be able to bake it the moment I mix it and maybe itll be more moist and sweetbready and less doughbready, if ya know what I mean. But still, this way is nice because its not overpoweringly dessertlike and can easily be toasted with some margarine or jam and eaten for breakfast. (I'm not too keen on dessert for breakfast)

Have you baked with splenda before? Back in the dark ages before the stuff scared me, I used it but was never was able to make baked goods like cake and cookies turn out right.

Before going vegan I used splenda in my banana bread--I went through a phase where I made one almost every other day! It never was a problem before. I really think my issue was the four hour wait, especially since I had decided to add some vinegar.

I just made this. I did only 3/4 c sugar and did pecans instead of walnuts. Yum. Tofu, who would think? It is kind of heavy. We enjoyed it though. What would happen if you put in a little more baking powder?

i made vegan banana bread the other day, and it was very crisp on the edges but too moist and heavy on the inside. the pan size was correct, and i didn't even use tofu for fear that it would be too "soggy". is this normal for vegan banana bread or am i trying to mimic the texture of a "normal" banana bread, which just won't happen?
