A great way to get rid of those very very ripe bananas I have laying around. I had 6 which is unusual. I think some must have got stuck in the snack basket and forgotten. Oh well. The big bosses are in tomorrow so I thought I would be a great employee and welcome them with a tasty treat.
I doubled the recipe. You can find it here. It had to bake a little longer since my pans were Temptations, but they turned out beautifully. The recipe doesn’t call for nuts but I added them.
Doubled recipe is here:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
6 ripe bananas
2 c. sugar
1 c. applesauce
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tbsp. baking powder
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. vanilla extract
4 c. flour
Don’t forget to spray your pan with non-stick!
I love my Kitchen Aid chopper. I threw in the bananas, the applesauce, vanilla, and eggs and got them all mashed and mixed and then dumped it in with the dry ingredients. It actually made 2 loafs (bake for 45 minutes and then check and see if they need to bake longer) and 8 muffins (cook for about 25 minutes). So yummy.
There is also an optional frosting but it really doesn’t need it in my book.
