GETTING READY
1) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

MAKING
2) On a cookie sheet, place the chopped walnuts.
3) Heat in the preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the walnuts turn golden brown. Do not burn the walnuts. Keep them aside and let the oven be on.
4) In a bowl, combine the milk and lemon juice. Mix and keep aside.
5) In another bowl, cream together the butter or margarine along with fructose.
6) To this, mix in the eggs, vanilla extract and the milk-lemon juice mixture.
7) In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and baking powder.
8) Gradually add the liquid ingredients, mixing well.
9) To this, add the mashed bananas and toasted walnuts. Mix well.
10) Into a greased and floured 9X5X3-inch loaf pan, transfer this mixture and bake for 1 1/4 hours, or until done.
11) Remove the bread from the oven.
12) Place on its side for 5 minutes.
13) Turn out of the pan to a rack and let cool to room temperature.
14) Now, wrap the bread in foil or put in a sealed plastic bag and refrigerate for 2 days, before serving. This helps in improving the flavor.

SERVING
15) Slice and serve, as desired.
