Going Bananas Over Quick And Easy Treats (NAPSA) - No matter how pressed you are for time, it's important to you to include fresh ingredients in your menu planning. Fortunately, it's easy to find quick, wholesome, delicious recipes the whole family can enjoy.

1-Dish Banana Walnut Streusel
Until now, yeast recipes typically called for carefully timed activation of the yeast, mixing the yeast and warm liquid with a minimum of dry ingredients, then slowly adding reserved dry ingredients. Now with 1-Dish recipes from Fleischmann's Yeast, the task is far less time consuming, as all dry ingredients are mixed in the same bowl at the same time. You don't even need to preheat the oven.

That makes it easy to create delicious treats such as this banana walnut streusel, with lots of sweet banana taste in every bite, in less than an hour.

This versatile recipe, which deliciously mingles the diverse textures of bananas, walnuts and a light, moist cake, can be enjoyed as an afternoon snack, a light dessert or for Sunday brunch.
