I was surprised at the lack of oil or butter in this banana bread – but even more surprised that it wasn’t dry and tasteless. I tried my first piece 3 days after I made the loaf, and it was still delicious and moist.


banana bread

1 1/2 cups flour

3/4 cup sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 eggs

1 cup mashed banana

1/2 cup applesauce

Heat oven to 350F. Lightly grease a 9 by 5 inch loaf pan.

In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon. Add eggs, banana and applesauce and stir until combined.

Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn onto a wire rack and cool completely before slicing.
