Banana and Raspberry Bread


Bananas and raspberries may not be the most obvious combination when baking quick breads such as this one, but they are a delicious pairing that's similar to bananas and another type of berries: blueberries. Here, the two fruits are folded into a batter that's sweetened with brown sugar and is made moist with eggs and milk (and those bananas, the riper the better). Be careful not to crush the berries when mixing them in.
