Banana Bread Recipe

I love to bake and quick breads are one of my favorite things to make. My son loves to get in on the action of making these as well. If we manage to get some over-ripe bananas piled up (which is a bigger challenge than you might think, they go quickly around here), we love to make a double batch of this bread.

Banana Bread

1-1/2 c all-purpose flour
1-1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 c mashed bananas
1 egg
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c natural applesauce

We use our stand mixer and mix it until blended, leaving the batter a bit lumpy. Spray bottom of loaf pan and add the mixture. Bake at 350 for 50 to to 55 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the loaf comes out clean.

  1. Yum! That looks really good. The recipe I use for Banana Bread is from an OLD Betty Crocker recipe book.

  2. yumm! Does the applesauce keep it moist? I usually use oil but would love a healthier version!

  3. Yes, the applesauce takes the place of the oil! Still very moist, but a bit healthier!

  4. I have some ripe bananas calling my name. I'm gonna make your bread today.
