Banana Bread

2-1/4 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 very ripe medium-size bananas, peeled and mashed well
3/4 cup raisins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray  a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan. Sift
together flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a small bowl. In
a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and creamy. Add egg
and vanilla and beat well. Add flour mixture alternately with bananas
to the butter mixture, beating gently after each addition. (Do not
over mix or bread will be tough.) Stir in raisins. Pour batter into
pan. Bake approximately 50 minutes, or until golden brown and a
toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a rack. Cut
into 12 slices. About 215 calories per slice. Exchanges: 1 bread, 1
