Banana Bread

Banana Bread

My mom makes THE BEST banana bread… hands down!  Here’s her recipe in case any of you have bananas that have gone bad like we did today.  I feel so wasteful throwing any kind of food away at this point.  It’s almost as precious as toilet paper at this point.  Well, nothing is that precious…

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup mashed bananas (usually about three bananas)
  • 3/4 cup chopped nuts or chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Cream together the eggs, applesauce, and sugar and beat well.
  3. Add flour, salt, nutmeg, baking powder, and soda which have been sifted together.  Stir well.
  4. Add the crushed bananas and nuts and stir in well.
  5. Add the batter to a greased loaf pan and sprinkle with flour.  Bake for 1 hour.
