Sweet Potato and Banana Bread


2 cups whole wheat flour (pastry flour preferred)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder (preferably aluminum-free, available at health food stores)
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/2 cup honey
1 large cooked sweet potato, mashed
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup oil
2 very ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/2 cup raisins, plumped in 1/2 cup orange juice


Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Mix together remaining ingredients and stir into dry mixture, stirring just enough to avoid lumps. Pour into an oiled and floured 9- by 9-inch pan. Bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees F, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.


Makes 9 to 12 pieces.
