Ultra Moist Banana Bread
What makes this bread recipe so great is not what it is… I mean, anyone can make banana bread!
I kindof stumbled into this by accident. I ran out of bananas mid-recipe one day and had to improvise. What resulted was a bread SO moist and tasty that I love to share it with everyone.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 cups mashed overripe bananas
1/3 cup applesauce
1/2 cup chopped nuts (if desired)
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar. Stir in eggs, bananas, applesauce, and nuts until well blended. Add banana mixture to flour mixture; stir just to moisten. Pour batter into creased 9×5 loaf pan.
Bake at 350° for 1 hour, or until a tootpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Led bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to finish cooling.
