Give overripe bananas a yummy new life. And in this Saucy Banana Bread recipe, applesauce takes the place of butter, so our all-time favorite is now better than ever in more ways than one!

What You'll Need

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup applesauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 3 medium-sized bananas)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9-  x 5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
     
  2. In a large bowl, cream together granulated sugar and applesauce. Add eggs and beat thoroughly. Gradually add baking soda, flour, and salt, blending to mix well. Beat in mashed bananas and vanilla extract until well mixed then pour batter into prepared pan.
     
  3. Bake 55 to 60 minutes, or until light golden. Immediately remove from pan and place on a wire rack to cool.
     

Notes

  • Shop for bananas that are very ripe and turning brown. They're the ones that are usually on sale and that give this the best flavor.
     
  • To use this recipe for banana muffins, just coat a 12-cup muffin pan with cooking spray, fill the muffin cups 3/4 full with batter, and bake ,17 to 20 minutes, or until light golden.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This turned out very moist and tasty. I will use this recipe for mini loaves for the holidays, YUM!

I made this as my first attempt at making muffins, and they were a hit. Added chopped walnuts because I like some crunch to the texture. Also the first try came out dense and flat, but still tasty; I think I over mixed. So the next try (minus excessive mixing) came out better with the tops being more round.

CAN YOU USE SELF RISING FLOUR IN THIS RECIPE?

Probably not, since you are using baking soda as a liven.
